At the request of Arjia Rinpoche, Shingza Rinpoche (Shingza Tulku) will be visiting Washington, D.C. from February 9 to 13. He will be giving Buddhist teachings to an organization located in Alexandria, VA known as
Kumbum Monastery is one of the six largest monasteries of the Gelugpasect of Tibetan Buddhism and the birth place of Lama Tsong Khapa (founder of the sect to which His Holiness the Dalai Lama belongs). Kumbum Monastery was once the home of 3,600 monks and well revered by the four well known Buddhist Colleges for higher learning: the Institute of Sutra, Instituteof Tantra, Institute of Tibetan Medicine, and the Institute of the Kalachakra(Cosmology).
In the 1980s, with the revival of Buddhism in Tibet and China, Arjia Rinpoche reestablished the monastic life and traditional studies.
Through his life Rinpoche was tutored by specialized teachers in Buddhist philosophy, sutra and tantra teachings, as well as, Buddhist art and architectural design. He was also in charge of the renovations of Kumbum monastery in 1991 and launched several projects including: (a.) a Red Cross Organizationin Kumbum, (b.) Disaster Relief Project for local villages, (c.) a Clinicfor villagers run by monks of the Tibetan Medical Institute and (d) a schoolfor local village children. ... See MoreSee Less

December is a month filled with celebrations and a variety of holidays, and signifies the end of a cycle. Please join us to celebrate, honor the end of this year’s cycle, and send blessings throughout the world. We also continue to send prayers for peace. In December we celebrate and remember the presentation of the Nobel Peace Price to His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, in 1989. His Holiness’ plan was for the restoration of peace and human rights in Tibet, recommending that the country be turned into an ecologically stable and demilitarized zone that serve as a buffer between major Asian powers. Unfortunately, his plan, accepted by the world, was rejected by the Chinese Government. We continue to pray that his plan will be accepted. “Kundun,” which means “ocean of wisdom,” was made by the renowned Martin Scorsese in 1997 and tells of the life of HHDL, with a bold script and beautiful musical score by Philip Glass. Members of His Holiness’ family act in the movie, also. Please join us for the Celebration of the Peace Prize, His Holiness, and treats following the showing. ... See MoreSee Less
