Dharma practitioners from the LGBT community face numerous obstacles both in life and in the practice of dharma. In his morning talk, The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche teaches about the Buddhist path of practice, skillfully relating each topic to issues that arise for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community of practitioners. The topics Rinpoche addresses include conceptual labeling and discrimination, working with the emotion of desire or passion in the three yanas, and cultivating healthy relationships. Rinpoche concluded by talking about Buddha's teaching on the fundamental nature and potential of all sentient beings. The afternoon session of this program was devoted to questions and answers. This teaching provides a precious opportunity for dharma practitioners in the LGBT communty to hear a major Buddhist lineage holder teach and answer questions about Buddhist views and practice as they relate to LGBT issues.
