Interfaith Dialogue on Compassion & Kindness Video is now online

Meaningful dialogue can happen when the conversation turns to our religious differences. With understanding of other religious beliefs and practices, trust can develop as a first step in cultivating compassion and harmony through understanding within our communities.

To promote the understanding of customs and religious beliefs to nurture harmony, love and kindness in our communities, we will bring together three to promote the understanding of customs and religious beliefs to nurture harmony, love and kindness in our communities.

Here is the full recording of that dialogue.

Sonam Rinpoche has spent 18 years in Buddhism Study in Tibet and India
before earning the title of “Khenpo.” In Tibetan, Khenpo refers to someone
with extensive knowledge of Buddhism study, which is the equivalent to a
professor in Buddhism philosophy.

Rinpoche has finished all Dzogchen teachings (the highest teaching) under
the Nyingma tradition as well as all the initiations from the Ahzom lineage.
Later, Rinpoche pursued higher Buddhist philosophy under the guidance
of H.H. Penor Rinpoche, and he also spent another eight years at the
Buddhism Institute of Nyingma mastering the teaching of Mahayana and
Vajrayana.

H.H. Dalai Lama has complimented his wisdom and encouraged him to
continuously uphold and propagate the Buddha’s teachings for the benefits
of all sentient beings.

Education at Elevation is a non-political non-profit committed to improving the lives of Tibetan children living in rural Eastern Tibet. Our vision is to bring hope to the children through education and spiritual growth that will provide them with roots for a brighter future.

The students are children of nomads who live high up in the Tibetan Plateau. Many of them are orphans or come from single-parent homes. Life is tough at 14,000 ft. and educational opportunities scarce. The school provides a safe nurturing home and as well as an education center that fosters personal and intellectual development.

The school is led by the founder, Tulku Sonam Rinpoche who grew in the Kham area where the school was built. Sonam Rinpoche’s desire is to break the tireless cycle of poverty that prevails from generation to generation in this remote land.

The students have many dreams.
We believe that education is the foundation to create a better life.
We believe that kindness transforms lives.
And believe that compassion creates hope.
