2014 Winter Dzogchen Retreat – 1,000 Buddhas Empowerment and Dzogchen Instructions of HH Dudjom Rinpoche and Dudjom Lingpa
January 18, 2014 - January 26, 2014
Empowerment of the ‰ÛÏOne Thousand Buddhas of this Fortunate Aeon‰ and Dzogchen Teachings of His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche and the great terton Dudjom Lingpa, bestowed by Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal RinpocheJanuary 18‰ÛÒ25, 2014
The 1,000 Buddhas empowerment will be offered according to the terma of the great terton Rigdzin Dudul Dorje, who was an emanation of Khyechung Lotsawa‰ÛÓone of the 25 disciples of Guru Padmasambhava. The central buddha of this empowerment is Thousand-Armed Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. This lineage was preserved and sustained by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, who was an emanation of both of these masters.
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche will give Dzogchen teachings on His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche‰۪s condensed heart advice for practitioners, as well as sections of the terma Buddhahood Without Meditation by the great terton Dudjom Lingpa. These profound instructions unite all the teachings of the Buddha into simple pith instructions we can apply on the cushion and in our daily lives.
These Great Perfection teachings are the great rain that extinguishes the raging fire of the emotions; the wish-fulfilling jewel that dispels the poverty of clinging to existence and non-existence; the great sun that scatters the heavy darkness of the two obscurations; the wondrous path that leads smoothly and directly to liberation and enlightenment; the heart treasure of the vidyadharas, yogis and yoginis, and male and female bodhisattvas.
“One thousand arms are the thousand universal monarchs.
One thousand eyes are the thousand buddhas of this Fortunate Aeon.
Emanating as needed for beings, Lord Chenrezig,
To you I pay homage.”
We invite you to join us for this program of self-development and discovery!
