Active Nonviolence Education Center requested His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche for a short video talk on Nonviolence and we are extremely humbled and grateful to Rinpoche for accepting our request and sharing this short brief in-depth insight on nonviolence, nonviolent practice and philosphy. Rinpoche also wishes us merriest and auspicious Lunar Tibetan New Year ( Year of Ox) at the end of the video.
HE Ling Rinpoche was born in India on November 18, 1985. He was taken to the Tibetan Children's Village in Dharamsala, after his mother passed away, and stayed there until His Holiness the Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of his Principal Teacher, the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, who passed away in 1983.
The 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche entered Drepung Monastic University in South India in 1990 when he was five years old and began his monastic studies there at the age of ten. Rinpoche received his Geshe degree in November 2016 and enrolled at Gyuto Tantric College in Dharamsala, India in April 2017 for a year of tantric studies that traditionally follows the completion of a Geshe degree. He completed his studies in February 2018. During his studies, the 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche spent periods of time in retreat.
He has since given numerous teachings around the world on Buddhism as well as other topics.
Starting in 2004, H.E. Ling Rinpoche also participated in the Mind and Life Institute dialogues held in India between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and scientists on a variety of topics, such as physics, neuroplasticity and destructive emotions. In 2005, Rinpoche has attended international events dedicated to preserving Buddhist traditions, including the World Peace Puja in Bodhgaya, India and in 2011, the International Conference on Vinaya in Varanasi in 2011. In 2017, H.E. Ling Rinpoche joined His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist leaders at a three-day International Buddhist Conference on "The Relevance of Buddhism in the 21st Century", organized by the Indian Government Ministry of Culture and the Nava Nalanda Mahavihara.
