Tsem Rinpoche animatedly re-enacting a story for some students.

Rinpoche is not only an accomplished Dharma teacher but also a gifted storyteller. Very often during Rinpoche’s talks, philosophy will be punctuated with jokes and anecdotes that has students doubled over in laughter but at the end of the talk, you’ll realise was not just a simple joke or anecdote after all. Every moment and every experience is a Dharma teaching because for Rinpoche, life is not inseparable from Dharma and practice.
