At this event, Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe will discuss how individuals perceive the world in 3 alternative ways, that being the vision of experience, pure experience and impure perception. This is based on the teachings of the Sakya tradition, a major branch of Tibetan Buddhism.

Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe has been a Tibetan Buddhist Monk for more than 30 years and is the highest qualified Sakya teacher in Australia. The term “Khenpo” (as outlined on has at least three meanings in Tibetan Buddhism:

  • a scholar who has completed an extensive course of study in sutra and tantra
  • a senior Lama who can give ordinations is also called a Khenpo
  • the head of a monastery
