“Kindness and Compassion”
Public Talk with Ling Rinpoche
10:30 am – 12 noon at Maitripa College
(co-hosted with Northwest Tibetan Cultural Association)
We are deeply honored and overjoyed to welcome His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche to Portland and Maitripa College on His historic visit to North America. We invite you to take advantage of this rare opportunity to connect with this extraordinary Lama. His Eminence Ling Rinpoche will offer a teaching on “Kindness and Compassion” at Maitripa College, co-hosted by Northwest Tibetan Association, on Saturday, September 8, from 10:30am-Noon.
Your generous support helps makes possible the visit of His Eminence, the 7th Kyabje Ling Rinpoche to Maitripa College, and the mission of Maitripa College. We practice the generosity of offering teachings with great lamas for free to all who are interested, with enormous gratitude for all who have supported us in the past and present. Please make an offering in support of future dharma teachings and practices, if you are able at this time, and thank you from our hearts.
