Transforming the Mind
Public Talk with Tergar Lama Khenpo Kunga
Tergar Madison Meditation Center
Madison, Wisconsin, USA
We all want to enable positive transformations in ourselves. Just having the intention might be a change in itself. But how can we really enable change beyond our intention? How can we actually transform our minds?
According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the transformation we seek can be achieved by working with the three aspects of view, meditation and conduct. Devoting our efforts toward these three aspects combined — known in the West as our intellect, heart and daily habits — allows lasting change to emerge.
In this public talk, Khenpo Kunga will discuss the Tibetan Buddhist approach to transforming the mind and how we can integrate these traditional methods into daily life “off of the cushion.”
Thursday, September 12, 7:00—9:00pm

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.
