‘Akong: A Remarkable Life’
a new film on the life of Akong Rinpoche
1.30-3:30pm Sunday June 17th 2018
In a break from our usual meditation sessions and dharma talks, we’ll be gathering on the sofas of our comfortable little Bangkok Meditation Center to watch the new and inspiring film Akong: A Remarkable Life
|A documentary film about the inspirational life of Chöje Akong Tulku Rinpoche. Through his powerful message of loving-kindness and compassion and his humanitarian work around the world, Akong Rinpoche has benefitted the lives of countless people. This film aims to make his inspirational life story available to future generations.
Akong Tulku Rinpoche, born in Kham in Eastern Tibet in 1941, was quickly recognized as a reincarnate Tulku and enthroned as the Abbot of Drolma Lhakhang Monastery at the age of four. In 1959, tensions between China and Tibet reached breaking point and Akong was forced to undertake a dangerous journey across the Himalayas on foot to India aged nineteen.
