We are delighted to announce that H.E. Demo Rinpoche will lead a two-day teaching on the recitation of the 35 Buddhas, a powerful and popular Mahayana purification practice.

Beginning from the foundation of refuge and bodhimind, the recitation of the 35 Buddhas expounds our call for help to Shakyamuni Buddha and all Buddhas. After prostrations, practitioners recall misdeeds in this life and acknowledge misdeeds in previous lives. By recognizing our limitless ethical mistakes as causing obstructions to our own and others’ peace, we deepen our capacity to help other beings. This practice offers a chance to meaningfully change non-virtuous habits and negative emotions in everyday life.

Through reviewing our mistakes, promising to be vigilant, and dedicating our efforts towards Enlightenment, we may free ourselves from emotional cycles like guilt, anger, and anxiety. For those aspiring to progress on the path of the Bodhisattva, purification perfectly elucidates hidden negative karma.

This fall seminar aims to restore and bolster practitioners’ healthy relationships with their minds and with other beings. Demo Rinpoche will explain and untangle concepts such as karma, refuge, regret, and dedication.

Give what you can. No one turned away.

Demo Rinpoche entered Drepung Loseling Monastery in Mundgod at the age of five and officially joined the monastery in 1987, where he spent nearly thirty years of uninterrupted education in meditation, debate, memorization, philosophy, and composition under the Dalai Lama’s direct supervision. After completing his studies at Drepung, Rinpoche received the highest monastic degree of Geshe Lharampa from Gelugpa University in India in 2011. He continued his studies at Gyume Tantric College and was a visiting scholar under the auspices of the Dalai Lama at Sarah College of Higher Tibetan Studies in Dharamsala. At the request of Gelek Rimpoche, Demo Rinpoche came to the United States, where he received his Master’s Degree in Inter-Religious Engagement from Union Theological Seminary in New York City in 2018. Currently based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he serves as Jewel Heart’s Spiritual Director.
