2009-08-20 Teachings on Compassion In Tibetan, translated by Marina Illich 1:17:20
Phagyab Rinpoche
Ven. Phagyab Rinpoche is known for his healing abilities. As a striking example, he healed his leg, which two doctors said needed to be amputated after undergoing torture in Tibet. The Compassion Project that he started was founded to bring the wisdom of Tibet’s Buddhist mind-sciences to the West to teach techniques for developing mindfulness, stress-reduction, non-violent conflict resolution, compassion and mind-body well-being.
