“Spiritual Tradition
and Its Relevance Today”

A talk by the Venerable
Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche

Here, in two parts, is a recording of Rinpoche’s public talk in Athens (January 2014). Part One is the talk itself, and Part Two is the Q&A session that followed. Listen here now, or click the small Soundcloud icon for a page where you can download the file.


In recent years, a growing interest in spirituality has given rise to many new approaches to spiritual living. In the midst of these changes, what place do more traditional forms of spiritual practice have?

In this talk, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche considers the nature of spirituality from a Buddhist perspective and explores its practical significance in the modern world.

A talk for anyone, Buddhist or not. 

Born in Tibet in 1924, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche began his monastic training at age twelve. In 1976 His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa sent Rinpoche to the U.S. as the abbot of the Karma Triyana Dharmachakra monastery.

In the years since, Rinpoche has taught and guided the individual practice of thousands of students. He is the author of many books on Tibetan Buddhism.
