Short Bio

His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was born in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, India, on 18 November 1985. In 1987, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche (1903 – 1983), who was the most Senior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

Upon the successful completion of his Geshe studies, Rinpoche’s focus turned to traveling the world and spreading the Dharma through giving Buddhist teachings and initiations, public talks and interviews, and engaging with great interest in Buddhist and inter-faith conferences and various community events.

Relevance in the Modern World

Although the Buddhist contemplative tradition and modern science evolved from different historical roots, they share a tradition of investigation to understand the highest level of truth through realization and practice to see it directly. They both view life in terms of complex inter-relationships and the natural laws of cause and effect. Over the last 30 years, scientists have become interested in the rich Buddhist classification of phenomena and mental states, as well as contemplative techniques for refining mental qualities. Inter-disciplinary dialogues and studies have been taking place on a wide range of topics, including our capacity to transform and regulate emotions through Buddhist practices. Results include finding ways to reduce stress in modern life and the tangible effects of cultivating compassion.
