Healing Anger:  

The Wisdom of Peace and Forgiveness:

A practical guide to transformation and healing

based upon “Patience” by Shantideva

with Venerable Tenzin Namjong

Venerable Tenzin Namjong will present  a practical guide of various tools, techniques and methods to overcome anger and hatred.  The workshop will be based on the “Patience Chapter” of great classic Indian text Bodhisattvacharyavatara by Shantideva.  It will include several meditations so that participants may learn how to integrate these teachings within their minds and hearts, leading to real transformation and healing.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Ven. Tenzin Namjong, is now in his tenth year of the Geshe (Doctorate of Buddhist Philosophy) at Sera Je Monastery in Bylakuppe, India. He holds a B.A. in Philosophy from Princeton University and is a registered teacher within the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), and teaches regularly in Bangalore, India. He has studied and trained in Zen and Theravada traditions.

Ven Namjong will be here with his teacher (who is not proficient in English) Ven. Geshe Chimey Tsering. Geshe-la fled his homeland of Tibet to come to India in 1986.  He graduated as a Geshe Lharampa  from Sera Je Monastery, finishing with the highest marks of his graduating class.  He is now professor of Buddhist philosophy at Sera Je Monastic University.
