Singha Namdrol Rinpoche’s charm is his down-to-earth style of teaching — very evident in the short video Experience Buddhism, below. Although short, the video contains profound insights:
“Our practice is not so much about faith. It’s not so much about prayer…The purpose of practice is to bring out the divinity in us.”
Singha Namdrol Rinpoche is popular, in part, because he is an engaging teacher in both English and Mandarin Chinese. Recognized as a Tulku, Namdrol Rinpoche studied with teachers from Theravada, Mahayana and Tibetan Buddhist traditions. He was a lay Yogi at Kopan Monastery in Nepal for many years. Today, he is the spiritual director at Thekchen Choling temple in Singapore.
Transcript of Video
“Buddhism emphasizes and lays it very foundations on equanimity. There is no difference between god and human and animal, rich person, poor person — everybody is fundamentally the same. That is the core teaching of Buddhism.”
