Thupten Rabgyi - Meditation
Rabgyi was born in Golok, Tibet. When he was 7 years old he entered the local monastery, became a monk. When he was 17 years old he met his Teacher Urgyen Tenzin. He was Urgyen Tenzin’s attendant going around in the local areas by foot and learned meditation from this Teacher. Sometimes if the weather was very bad, Urgyen Tenzin was quite old and could not travel by foot, so he would send Rabgyi to teach meditation. Later he went to India and then to Australia. He was teaching meditation as a volunteer in the local primary school. Then a Buddhist organization promoting inter-religious understanding invited him to teach meditation with children. Then he ended up teaching meditation at mental health clinics and hospitals with the patients and healthcare workers. Then he came to Tenerife and has been teaching meditation once a week for many years with the approval of his Teacher, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. Rabgyi finds meditation a simple and easy method that is very beneficial to calm the mind and feel more relaxed.
