CNY Medicine Buddha Prayer Society Presents:
Lama Namdrol Tulka from Singapore

September 16 - September 28

The CNY Medicine Buddha Prayer Society is happy to announce that Lama Namdrol Tulku from Singapore will be in our Syracuse area for the last two weeks of September, and will be offering a series of teachings and empowerments during that time.  Born in Singapore in 1974 to a Chinese Taoist family, Lama Namdrol Rinpoche is a “tulku,” the recognized reincarnation of a Buddhist master from Tibet.  Drawn to Buddhism at an early age, Lama Namdrol studied with teachers from the Theravada, Chinese Mahayana and Tibetan traditions.  For many years he trained, not as a monk, but as a lay Tibet Buddhist Yogi at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, before founding his own temple, Thekchen Choling, in Singapore in 2001.  A brilliant teacher fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, Lama Namdrol is well known for his fresh, exciting, down-to-earth teaching style, as well as his practical wisdom and insightful humor.   Click HERE for the schedule of teachings and Events.
