“The Three Trainings” are essential teachings and instructions on ethics (morality), concentration (meditation), and wisdom.
We need to develop our ethics, meditation and wisdom in order to transform our current afflicted mental states and hence progress on the path. The Three Trainings are important both in Buddhist and worldly contexts; learning to lead a more wholesome life by benefiting others and refraining from harm, making the mind more emotionally balanced, and developing both practical wisdom and rational analysis.
It is a wonderful opportunity to have a qualified teacher teaching us this extremely important topic.
Khenpo Leethong became a monk when he was 15 years old and graduated from Karma Shri Nalanda Institute of Rumtek monastery (monastery of HH Karmapa in Sikkim.) The Khenpo studied mainly Buddhist philosophy and also some languages, western philosophy and comparative religions. After Khenpo Leethong graduated, he taught in Rumtek for some years, after which time he focused more on research. Khenpo’s speciality is focussed on Karma Kagyu teachings and history.
Presently Khenpo Lekthong lives at Ralang monastery, the monastery of Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche, heart son of HH 16 Gyalwa Karmapa, where he duties include translating teachings into English.
