Akong – A Remarkable Life

Saturday 29 April 2017 7.30pm

In 1959 Akong Tulku Rinpoche, a nineteen year old Tibetan abbot, escaped Chinese aggression by crossing the Himalayas on foot. From the party of over two hundred Tibetans that set off, only fifteen survived the gruelling ten-month ordeal.

In 1963, Akong arrived in the UK with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. In order to support themselves, Akong initially worked as an orderly at a hospital in Oxford. In 1967, he founded the first Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the West – Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland.

Samye Ling has become an international centre for authentic Tibetan Buddhist teachings, renowned for bringing great contemporary Buddhist masters such as HH the 16th Karmapa, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpoche, Tai Situ, Ringu Tulku amongst others.

Akong Tulku Rinpoche continued to personally supervise his countless projects, right up until his murder in China at 73 years of age. His projects reach out to thousands of people in need through his charity ROKPA International, which invests nearly 100% of donations directly into humanitarian projects in Tibet, Nepal, India and Africa.

A film about his life has recently been completed, and we are delighted to be able to share it with you at Roselidden.

Tickets are £7 or £5 concessions, and places may be reserved by contacting Vici Williams on vici.williams@googlemail.com or 07974 113352.

All profits will go to the Akong Memorial Foundation https://akongmemorialfoundation.org
