Padma Samye Ling, NY
This summer, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche will bestow one of the great teachings of the Padma family on the supreme herukas Hayagriva and Vajravarahi according to the terma of the great terton Tsasum Lingpa. Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche will explain the structure of all sadhana practices of the Inner Tantras, including the Creation and Completion Stages of visualization, mantra recitation, and Dzogchen. He will give very detailed and thorough instructions so practitioners can absorb the heart of the Vajrayana teachings, and not just receive empowerments and blessings.
The great terton Tsasum Lingpa was an emanation of Nubchen Sangye Yeshe who was one of the Nine Heart Students of Guru Padmasambhava. Nubchen Sangye Yeshe was one of the principal lineage holders of the entire Nyingma Kama, as well as the Anuyoga teachings. He emanated many great tertons and scholar-masters from the 11th century to the present.
Tsasum Lingpa was one of the renowned emanations of Nubchen Sangye Yeshe and is one of the leading of examples of a terton who discovered termas from the earth, rocky mountains, and lakes. He discovered so many essence teachings of the Inner Tantras, including Mahayoga, Anuyoga, and Atiyoga, as well as practices on a variety of deities of the Inner Tantras. In particular, he discovered this Hayagriva and Vajravarahi teaching in the Fire Monkey Year (1716) from the very holy mountain in southern Tibet known as glorious Tsari Ta, which is considered one of the 24 holiest places on earth according to the Inner Tantras.
In Tsari Ta Mountain, Guru Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyal hid many termas to be discovered in the future, and exactly according to the predictions of Guru Rinpoche, many tertons revealed termas there. Many Nyingma and Kagyu masters also meditated and actualized the highest realization of enlightenment at Tsari Ta.
This Hayagriva and Vajravarahi practice is strongly connected to the Padma Heruka family and is the essence of Mahayoga, Anuyoga, and Dzogchen. The combination of these two buddhas is a very powerful practice for this time to discover our innate nature and remove physical and mental obstacles. In particular, this practice will increase life force and bring the realization of the pure view of the cosmic mandala and its inhabitants.
Retreat begins Saturday, July 13, with morning practice at 7:00am, breakfast and registration 8-10am; and first teaching at 10am.
Empowerment on Sunday, July 14th 10:00am-1:00pm.
Retreat concludes around 1:00pm on Sunday, July 21.
