Abhidharma Teachings on Buddhist Psychology with
Khenpo Chonyi Rangdrol

Fridays 14 October & 21 October  7.30pm-9.00pm AEST


We are looking forward to welcoming Khenpo Chonyi Rangdrol again this Spring. Khenpo will teach on the Abhidharma, the teachings of Buddhist psychology.

Abhidharma is one of the three main baskets or collections of texts of the Buddhist canon, alongside the Vinaya, or monastic code, and the Suttas, the teachings. It was originally compiled by councils of the Buddha’s followers in the centuries after Buddha’s parinirvana. 

  • The Abhidharma lays out what is essentially The Buddha’s systems theory: the text describes the nature, origin, and interaction of all psychological and material phenomena, including human consciousness itself.
  • The Abhidharma method presents the Buddha’s teachings in technical terms that are carefully defined to ensure analytical preciseness.
  • Abhidharma is distinctive in its efforts to provide the theoretical counterpart to the Buddhist practice of meditation and, more broadly, a systematic account of sentient experience. It does so by analyzing conscious experience—and in this sense one’s “world”—into its constituent mental and physical events.
  • Abhidharma tells about how we think, feel and experience life. 

In short, it is a vast map of the Buddhist view of the mind and how it relates to the world…


Join us for this wonderful opportunity, as Khenpo Chonyi Rangdrol explores the Abhidarma Teachings on Buddhist Psychology!

Khenpo Chonyi Rangdrol became a monk at Thrangu Monastery Nepal at the age of six and in 1998 became the youngest Khenpo in the Monastery’s history. Khenpo-la was then appointed as a Teacher at the Monastic College for two years.
From 2003 to 2010, Khenpo-la served as the Principal of Shree Mangal Dvip School and since 2011, Khenpo-la has served as Abbot of Thrangu Tara Abbey Nunnery.  From 2014 – 2016, Khenpo-la was appointed Vice President of the Nepal Buddhist Federation and is currently a senate member of Lumbini Buddhist University. In May 2022, Khenpo was newly appointed as the chairman (CEO) of Thrangu Monastery in Namo Buddha.

**The term khenpo (Tib. མཁན་པོ། mkhen po), or khenmo (in the feminine) is a degree for higher Buddhist studies given in Tibetan Buddhism. In the Nyingma, Kagyu, and Sakya traditions, the title is awarded usually after 13 years of intensive study after secondary school. It may roughly translate to either a bachelor’s degree or nowadays more likely to a degree in Buddhist Studies, equivalent to a PhD or MPhil. The degree is awarded to students who can publicly defend their erudition and mastery in at least five subjects of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, namely Prajñāpāramitā, Madhyamaka, Pramāṇa, Abhidharma, and Vinaya. After successfully passing their examination they are entitled to serve as teachers of Buddhism. ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khenpo
