About Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

Yongey Mingyu Rinpoche

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is the very embodiment of loving-kindness and compassion. A symbol of equanimity. The perfection of wisdom. He is what we aspire to be. According to Rinpoche, "The opportunity to experience yourself differently is always available." Here is an opportunity for us to acquire the tools from the master of spontaneous wisdom himself.

Venerable Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a Buddhist teacher and meditation master. He spent many years of his childhood in strict retreat. At the age of seventeen, he was invited to be a teacher at his monastery’s three-year retreat centre, a position rarely held by such a young lama. At age twenty, Rinpoche became the functioning abbot of Sherab Ling. He also completed the traditional Buddhist training in philosophy and psychology. He has authored multiple best-selling books.
