Anyen Rinpoche will be teaching from and signing his wonderful book Momentary Buddhahood, Friday, February 19th from 7:45—9p.m. at Prana Yoga 3840 Osprey Ave. in Sarasota Florida.
Anyen Rinpoche was born in Amdo, Tibet. His lineage can be traced back directly to the renowned Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche, author of Words of My Perfect Teacher. Anyen Rinpoche’s training included more than fourteen years of intensive study combined with solitary retreat before he obtained the degree of khenpo (master teacher) and became the head scholar of his monastic university in Kham, Tibet. Rinpoche is known for his profound understanding of the scriptures as well as his easy-to-understand interpretation of them. He has taught extensively in Tibet and China and now mentors students throughout Southeast Asia, Japan and North America.
Here is what people are saying about Momentary Buddhahood.
“With his brilliant scholarship in Buddhism and intimate knowledge of the minds of both East and West, Anyen Rinpoche has produced a truly insightful guidebook on mindfulness, a precious gift for Dharma students, new and old alike. I trust that by taking in these teachings, we can rejuvenate the mindfulness that is inherent in us all.”—from the foreword by Tulku Thondup Rinpoche, author of Boundless Healing
“Anyen Rinpoche teaches the profound view of Dzogchen as the culmination of a graduated path of practical instructions for transforming our lives. He points out that the experience of the mind’s true nature is accessible to us at any time, yet must be cultivated through a lifetime of practice. This accessible book shows how mindfulness is central to this practice, allowing us to recognize our own negative patterns of behavior and transcend them.”—Sam Van Schaik, author Approaching the Great Perfection
“This extraordinary book shows how applying mindfulness, like following a compass, guides us on the path and directs our energy toward transformative practice.”—Deborah Schoeberlein, author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness
