Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche will give teachings and lead practices on Guru Padmasambhava according to the terma, The Concise Sadhana of the Vidyadhara Lama, revealed by the great terton Tsasum Lingpa.

In Tibetan, Guru Padmasambhava is generally referred to as Guru Rinpoche, which means “precious master.” Guru Rinpoche is renowned as the buddha of degenerate times. He dispels all negativities and violence, freeing all beings from their troubles and disturbances. In the 8th century, Guru Rinpoche brought the entire teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni to Tibet. Buddha Shakyamuni actually predicted Guru Rinpoche’s appearance as a fully enlightened buddha, saying that Guru Rinpoche would be a direct reincarnation of Buddha Shakyamuni himself. Through his form, primordial wisdom manifested in the world to benefit all sentient beings.

Dissolving fixed conceptions and not clinging to limited perceptions reveals the vastness of the true nature, the sphere of great equanimity. By breaking down the walls of rigid thinking, we merge with this evenness, seeing everything as inseparable and flowing in continuous transformation. We become decent, intelligent human beings capable of really helping others. Guru Padmasambhava’s teachings offer a direct path to actualize this realization.

 


 

 

Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche is a holder of the complete Buddhist Nyingma lineage of study and practice. He was enthroned by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche as a Nyingma Abbot. As an accomplished scholar and Vajrayana master, Rinpoche has an amazing ability to convey profound topics simply and directly, making the rich, vast ocean of Dharma accessible and easy to put into practice.
