"Do Something Good Before You Go"
with Khenpo Chokyi Gyaltsen Khampa
Music by Jas Marlin
Afternoon prayers & chants for Nepal
raising fund for earthquake relief efforts
1:30 to 2:30 pm
Khenpo Chokyi Gyaltsen Khampa grew up in the snowy region of Kham in Eastern Tibet, surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains. He farmed his family's land and took care of their many horses with his brothers and sister. At the age of 18 he resolved to become a monk and dedicate his life to helping others through the Buddhist teachings.
Crossing the Himalayas on foot, he became an exile from Tibet and entered India. There he joined the Dzongsar Institute where his decade of monastery life and intensive Buddhist studies began. Khenpo was most fortunate to spend ten years of study and practice with Master Kunga Wangchuk, one of the Dalai Lama's teachers.
Upon completing his studies he graduated with diplomas in Maddhyama, Shastri and a Masters degree in Arcarya. He then received the title of "Khenpo," Master or Abbot.
He came to the U.S. in 2003. He travelled to many cities to teach and share the Dharma. In 2013 he began work on the Prayer Flag Temple (Sakya Lungtha Lhakang) in Pahoa.
Recently he has been motivated to direct his efforts towards expanding educational opportunities for young people in Tibet. He sells Tibetan art and artifacts at his booth at the farmer’s market in Kailua-Kona to support this project.
“Do Something Good before You Go” is the title of Khenpo’s Sunday morning talk at New Thought Center. In the afternoon, from 1:30 to 2:30, he will lead prayers and chanting for Nepal. Donations will support earthquake relief efforts.
