Generating the Heart and Mind of Compassion – a Humla Fund benefit with Tempa Dukte Lama

Sruti Yoga Center, 268 Main Street, STE B, Great Barrington, MA

Saturday, April 25, 10am-5:30pm

Cultivating the heart and mind of compassion is the heart drop of the Buddha’s teaching. It is the most fundamental and essential practice in Bon. The heart and mind of compassion is the basis for our development on the Path of Liberation.This mind is the aspiration to attain full awakening in order to help all beings, independent of whether we encounter difficulties or ease in our lives. Tempa Lama will explain the central role of the heart and mind of compassion and how we can cultivate and sustain it in our lives.

Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained lama of the Tibetan Bon tradition. He is the founder and spiritual director of Olmo Ling Bon Center and Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, and co-founder of Humla Fund.

Tempa Lama studied at Menri Monastery, India, under the close guidance of the late H.H. 33rd Menri Trizin, the worldwide spiritual head of the Bon tradition until 2017. Tempa Lama has lived in the US since 2000 and teaches internationally, helping people bring a practice of healing and happiness into their lives.
