ABOUT JIGME LAMA SEAN D. YOUNG
Venerable Archarya Jigme Lama Sean D. Young, Padma Jigme Dorje, is an authorized Lama and Dharma Teacher in the Dzogchen Lineage of Buddhism. Lama Sean has studied with his root teacher His Eminence Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche for over 19 years and has directly assisted Rinpoche with the first three editions of the Buddhist book, The Buddha Path. Lama Sean has also graduated from nine Dzogchen Lineage Internships along with many seasonal retreats beginning with the first US 10-day retreat led by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche in 2000, near Fruitland, Utah. In 2014, Lama Sean also received an advanced degree of Vajra Yoga Practitioner at the first Dzogchen Lineage Internship commencement ceremony at the Dzogchen Retreat Center USA. In the same year, Lama Sean was authorized by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, along with eight other Lamas, as a Venerable Archarya Lama. The Lamas were selected through a dynamic process of divination, prayer, Rinpoche’s 10-year evaluation, and a majority vote of the 2014 Dzogchen Lineage Internship Sangha.

Lama Sean’s teaching activities began with teaching introductory Buddhism courses in 2002. Since then, he has taught hundreds of students in public teaching events, university guest lectures, weekend workshops, seasonal Dzogchen Lineage retreats, and tutoring during Dzogchen Lineage Internships.

Lama Sean aspires to embody the principle of inclusiveness, dedicating his life to practicing and teaching the Dharma and serving as President of the Dzogchen Shri Singha Foundation, while being a loving husband and father, and maintaining a career as a creative professional. Lama Sean is currently supporting the publication of future editions of the Buddha Path and other texts and aspires to fulfill his teacher’s aspirations to help establish a stable Dharma system to promulgate the Dzogchen lineage throughout the world and benefit all beings.

Introduction to Buddha Path Practice

March 11th at 7:30pm. For location and details: saltlakebuddhapath@gmail.com

For this session, we will learn and practice from the Preliminary Practice of the text, The Buddha Path.

About The Buddha Path:
“Although sentient beings engage in infinite activities, they do so with a single ultimate purpose. This is to attain absolute peace and unchangeable happiness. This is the goal of the Buddha’s teachings and the entire intention behind the creation of this book. Because all sentient beings have this same intention, anyone wishing to practice Buddhism is welcome to undertake this concise and powerful Dharma practice—The Buddha Path. This is an open door to the Buddhadharma.

The Preliminary Practice is at the heart of all subsequent spiritual practice… This practice tames the mind, subdues pride, eliminates guilt, and heals through the blessing of Buddha’s wisdom power, thereby removing the obstacles to the path of Enlightenment.”

Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche

Losar Tashi Delek! The Tibetan New Year begins on February 5th, which presents an excellent opportunity for renewal and growth. The first fifteen days of the the first lunar month until the full moon on February 19 are considered to be highly auspicious. It is said that the effects of intentions and actions multiply millions-fold during this time, so it is very good to engage in virtuous activities such as meditation, recitation, helping others, practicing loving kindness and generosity, reconciling conflicts, letting go of guilt or resentments, overcoming addictions, and making virtuous aspirations. Please celebrate with us during this time!
