Soul Graffiti™ Creates New Kindness Office
Soul Graffiti LLC announced the creation of its new Compassion and Kindness Office to be headed by the Venerable Tenzin Yignyen.
Wickatunk, NJ (PRWEB) November 8, 2004 — Soul Graffiti LLC announced the creation of its new Compassion and Kindness Office today, to be headed by the Venerable Tenzin Yignyen. This new division, which was created due to the increasing success of Soul Graffiti, will focus on offering kindness-based initiatives around the world.
“It is our hope that through this new Compassion and Kindness Office, Soul Graffiti will be able to further our mission of expanding an awareness of kindness around the world,” explained Soul Graffiti Founder, Dr. Joe Powers. It is a great honor to be joined by Venerable Tenzin Yignyen in this effort, as he has demonstrated a life-long commitment to helping others of all faiths and backgrounds to grow in compassion and kindness.
Venerable Tenzin Yignyen was born in Phari, southern Tibet, and was only three years old when he escaped into India. He was among the first graduating class of the relocated Namgyal Monastery educational program. In 1969, Tenzin entered the Tibetan Buddhist Namgyal Monastery (the personal monastery of the Dalai Lama) in Dharamsala, India, where he studied monastic ritual and philosophy. He was ordained as a monk by the Dalai Lama, and received the monastery's highest degree, “Master of Sutra and Tantra,” with highest honor in 1985. Tenzin was selected in 1995 to teach at Namgyal Monastery's North American Seat in Ithaca, New York and he has since remained in the United States, providing instruction in tantric ritual, Buddhist philosophy and Tibetan Buddhist sacred art forms. For the last six years, Tenzin has been professor of Tibetan Buddhist studies at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva.
