Broadcast via Zoom in English with Portuguese simulcast translation. Cost: $25 for Livestream via Zoom and recordings. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

“The Two Truths” is one of the most essential topics of the Middle Way tradition. Jakob Leschly returns as Elizabeth’s guest on OQ LIVE to help illuminate this subject with his characteristic lightness and humor.

Jakob is a Tibetan translator and meditator known for his skill in clearly communicating philosophical insights. He has studied with some of the greatest Vajrayajna masters of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, including Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dudjom Rinpoche, and Kangyur Rinpoche.
Jakob was born in Denmark. He took refuge with Venerable Kalu Rinpoche in 1974, and became a student of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche the following year. He lived in India and Nepal for several years and studied with other Tibetan masters such as Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, Chagdud Rinpoche, and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Since the 1990s he has served as an instructor for Siddhartha's Intent, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche’s Dharma organization.
