Lama Namdrol Rinpoche in Syracuse
The Zen Center of Syracuse is partnering with the CNY Medicine Buddha Prayer Society, Syracuse University’s Student Buddhist Association, and other local organizations to bring Lama Namdrol from Singapore to our area for the last two weeks of September. He will be offering a series of teachings and empowerments during that time.
Born in Singapore in 1974 to a Chinese Taoist family, Lama Namdrol Rinpoche is a “tulku,” the recognized reincarnation of a Buddhist master from Tibet. Drawn to Buddhism at an early age, Lama Namdrol studied with teachers from the Theravada, Chinese Mahayana and Tibetan traditions. For many years he trained not as a monk, but as a lay Tibetan Buddhist yogi at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, before founding his own temple, Thekchen Choling, in Singapore in 2001.
A brilliant teacher fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, Lama Namdrol is well known for his fresh, lively, down-to-earth teaching style, as well as his practical wisdom and insightful humor.
