The Buddha Within: Buddha Nature and the Path of Meditation
With Tergar Lama Khenpo Kunga
Tergar Madison Meditation Center
Madison, Wisconsin, USA
The Buddhist path is based on the understanding that our fundamental nature is pure and wholesome. This principle is most commonly known as “buddha nature” and informs the Buddhist path of awakening. The practice of meditation is one of the most powerful ways to cut through the limited beliefs we have about ourselves and attune ourselves to the radiant purity of our buddha nature.
In this evening talk, Khenpo Kunga will share his insights about this important principle and how we can apply them in everyday life. This teaching is open to anyone with an interest in Buddhist meditation.

About Khenpo Kunga:
Khenpo Kunga became a monk at a young age and began his education at Tergar monastery, where he studied the rituals, prayers, and other traditional practices of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. At fifteen, he entered an extended meditation retreat and spent three years mastering the profound contemplative practices of the Kagyü lineage. Following this period of intense meditation practice, he entered the renowned Dzongsar monastic college near Dharamsala in Northwest India. After studying there for eleven years and receiving his Khenpo degree (roughly equivalent to a PhD), he taught at Dzongsar college for three additional years. Khenpo Kunga’s primary teacher is Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, though he has studied with many other revered masters as well. In recent years, Khenpo Kunga has taught in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the United States as one of the main teachers for the worldwide network of Tergar monasteries, meditation centers, and meditation groups.
