Living a meaningful life is one of today’s most sought-after objectives, and, according to Tibetan Buddhist teacher Garchen Rinpoche, it’s something anyone can achieve. Garchen Rinpoche’s personal life has been filled with both turmoil and triumph. He’ll share this history–how he was imprisoned for 20 years and sent to a forced labor camp during China’s Cultural Revolution–and how it informed his teachings of compassion. Featured in the films “Yogis of Tibet” and “For The Benefit of All Beings,” Garchen Rinpoche has dedicated his life to aiding others. He’ll give insight into how, despite personal suffering, anyone can use adversity to benefit both themselves and others.

Event note: American Sign Language interpretation will be provided by Rainstar Barger. There is a scholarship ticket option available which allows patrons to donate as they are able. All proceeds from the talk will benefit Rinpoche’s Seattle nonprofit, Drikung Seattle.
