Nalanda West Seattle and Jewel Heart Present Gelek Rimpoche: Fearless Compassion and Principles for a Happy Life
Date:3/6/2010

Challenging times demand clarity grounded in genuine compassion. On April 2 in Seattle Washington, Tibetan Buddhist Gelek Rimpoche will address how to develop genuine and fearless compassion in order to live more fully and responsibly. On Saturday, April 3, he will present a program, “Kindness and Compassion: Principles for a Happy Life." Developing these qualities is the first step towards living fearlessly and harmoniously.

(PRWEB) March 6, 2010 -- On April 2 and 3 at Nalanda West in Seattle, WA, Gelek Rimpoche, founder of the Jewel Heart Tibetan Learning Center www.jewelheart.org, will address how to develop genuine and fearless compassion. Saturday's program, “Kindness and Compassion: Principles for a Happy Life," will assist us in developing these qualities - the first step towards living fearlessly and harmoniously.

Born in 1939 in Lhasa, Tibet, Gelek Rimpoche has played a crucial role in the survival and transmission of traditional Tibetan Buddhism. Mentored by some of Tibet’s greatest Buddhist masters, he is among the last generation of Tibetan lamas fully trained in ‘Old Tibet,’ pre-1959. In the late 1970’s Rimpoche was directed to teach Western students by his teachers, the Senior and Junior Masters to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Gelek Rimpoche is an example of kindness, generosity, good humor, and inspirational insight and is particularly distinguished for his familiarity with contemporary culture and his special effectiveness as a teacher of Western practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. Recognizing the unique opportunity for the interface of spiritual and material concerns in today’s world, Rimpoche has also opened a dialogue with science, psychology, medicine, metaphysics, politics, and the arts.

Rimpoche is an internationally recognized spiritual teacher and bestselling author of Good Life, Good Death and The Tara Box: Rituals for Healing and Protection from the Female Buddha, as well as over 30 teaching transcripts.

Rimpoche established his first Western teaching center in the Netherlands in 1985. In 1988, Jewel Heart was founded as a non-profit organization in Ann Arbor, Michigan and now has chapters and study groups throughout the U.S., Malaysia/Singapore, and the Netherlands.
