The London Shambhala Centre welcomed back Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche for the second annual cycle of teachings on Gesar of Ling. In an event attended by students from both the Shambhala and Ripa sanghas, we listened as Jigme Rinpoche presented these rich teachings in a contemporary and straightforward way.
The life of Gesar of Ling is the Tibetan national epic and the last living epic in the world, celebrating an enlightened warrior king. It is of particular importance to our community, in particular the Dorje Kasung, since Gesar’s story relates with the notion of protection, not in terms of warfare, but rather of awareness and appreciation of our lives.
