The Power of Buddhism a public talk by His Holiness Ratna Vajra Rinpoche
Fri 26 May 2017, 20:00 – 21:00 BST
A rare opportunity to hear this great Buddhist master describe the transformative power of Buddhism within the context of the 21st century.
During the evening, His Holiness will explain how through practising the Buddhist path, it is still possible to achieve lasting happiness and freedom from suffering, despite the stresses and turbulence so prevalent in the modern world.
His Holiness Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, is one of the principal lineage holders of the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Resident in India, he is the elder son of His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin, and, as the 42nd Sakya Trizin, one of the most important of the younger generation of Buddhist teachers alive today.
2017 also marks 40 years since the founding of the Sakya Buddhist Centre in Bristol and we’re delighted that His Holiness has agreed to visit during this celebratory year.
This is a public talk and so everyone is welcome to attend.
