Below you’ll find recordings of this 3 day teaching event to celebrate the release of the second edition of the King of the Dharma paperback and ebook. Net proceeds of the book sales will go to benefit the Rashi Gempil Ling Temple and the Castle Rock Fund. During this three day New Year’s celebration, we will learn about the life of Je Tsongkapa, one of the most prominent scholars and practitioners of Tibet, and how we can apply his wisdom for the upcoming 2022 year.
12 Ways to Have a Successful New Year
After hanging for nearly 35 years in a small temple in Howell, New Jersey, USA, 15 rare scroll paintings, (thangkas) with over 200 scenes depicting the life of Je Tsongkapa (1357-1419), have been brought alive into a master bibliographical work that is available for the first time in the English Language, with translation into Chinese.
This small temple, called Rashi Gempil Ling was built by Kalmyk Mongolian Buddhists and also was the residence of the great teacher Khen Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin, who trained with many great scholars and masters such as Pabongka Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche. His legacy lives on throughout the world having many students himself, including Geshe Michael Roach.
From these 200+ scenes, Geshe Michael Roach presents 12 thematic methods on how to open new doors of possible thinking and creativity in our lives in the New Year. Each theme will then become a practice for you to focus one in 2022, one for each month.
