Domo Geshe Rinpoche
Domo Geshe Rinpoche, spiritual director of White Conch Dharma Center, in Neilsville, will explain Buddhist principles for coping with the challenges of loss, healing and everyday life in a series of three lectures, scheduled from 7 to 8:30 p.m., April 2, 3 and 4 (see endnote for locations). The first talk, How Much Loss Can One Person Take?, covers how to remain stable, healthy and compassionate in a time of loss. The second night, Exploring Buddhist/Christian Commonalities, emphasizes interfaith understanding. The final lecture, Being a Healing Presence in the World, will explore how people can direct their energies to benefit themselves and the world.
Rinpoche will also lead a talk with a meditation on the four-armed Buddha Chenrezig, the embodiment of enlightenment, compassion, kindness, joy and equanimity, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., April 5, at The Atrium at Rolling Spirit, in Greendale.
While being rooted in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of transformative meditation, Rinpoche skillfully adapts the teachings to help Western students discover how to end self-created suffering and awaken deep compassion and wisdom.
