[SPECIAL BROADCAST] This Thursday, on The Conscious Consultant Hour, Sam does another special broadcast with a very honorable returning guest, the Buddhist monk Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche .
Lama Ahbay Tulku Jigme Thupten Tendar Rinpoche was born in Darjeeling, India in 1973. In the Tibetan calendar the day of his birth is known as “The Auspicious Day with Ten Good Omens.”
In 1979, Khabche Zong Rinpoche visited the hill station of Darjeeling and saw that it time for him to enter the monastery. In the same year the abbot of Gaden Jangtse Monastery in South India gave him the name Jigme Phuntsok, and he received the robes of a monk.
When he was nine years old he was fully initiated into monkhood and the tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Khabche Ling Rinpoche gave him the name Thupten Tendar. When he was twelve, His Holiness the Dalai Lama identified him as the reincarnation of the hermit Lama Lobsang Tenzin. One year later he was enthroned as Tulku in Gaden Jangtse Monastery.
From the age of twenty-five on he studied the Abidharma (Treasure of Knowledge) for three years followed by the Vinaya (Disciplines). These four major Buddhist texts, together with another text called Namdrel (Valid cognition), all are called Panchaparamita (Five major texts of Buddhist studies).
Sam and Lama Ahbay will discuss Wisdom & Compassion, The 6 Perfections, and how to develop A Peaceful Mind.
We all are interdependent. If you thank and love others, they automatically give it back to you, and from their, we have peace. If you love, you are emotionally positive and others feel that positivity.
What are the six perfections?
- generosity- giving will give one “good karma”
- ethics- body, mind, and speech
How do we apply these?: Only with practice.
Meditation is extremely important. Start off with short meditations and build your way up to longer meditations. That way you don’t lose concentration by starting off with meditations that are too long. Focus on your breath.
