October 23, 2016, Sunday, 6:00 pm-9:30 pm

Manjushri Lineage Dharma Center
2109 O’Toole Avenue Suite N
San Jose CA 95131

The Manjushri Lineage Dharma center has cordially requested Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche to give a discourse on Lama Atisha’s Bodhisattva’s Garland of Gems. According to Rinpoche, Bodhisattva’s Garland of Gems represents the pure style of mind training in Lama Atisha’s Old Kadampa Lineage, and also clearly specifies a practical method for the stages of the cultivation path. With this prayer as the main theme, Rinpoche merges into the teaching various Sutras, fundamental Dharma logic, and theories. He leads the students to get a clear understanding of their lives, to be honest to themselves, to treat and follow the cause and effect carefully, and to understand the purpose of Buddhist cultivation. Generating the Kadampa qualities of humility, honesty, kindness and purity as a foundation, one can enter into the true cultivation of the Bodhi Path.

Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche is the lineage holder of the Manjushri Lineage, and also a Lineage Guru of the Gelug Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. Rinpoche’s main Gurus include the great Gelug Masters Tsenshab Rinpoche and Dhakpa Rinpoche, who embody the Old Kadampa qualities. Rinpoche has unequaled view on the stages of the cultivation path, and he has designed unique and effective cultivation methods in stages. Rinpoche’s teachings help students understand the current situation of themselves and how to apply antidotes to their existing shortcomings. They learn how to understand the original form and meaning of Dharma in Buddha’s time, and to repair the deterioration in the current Dharma ending period. Rinpoche is a sage who can lead us to cultivate in our current lives and benefit and protect our future lives, one who is very hard to find in the present time.
