Annual Summer Dzogchen Retreat
July 22, 2006 @ 7:00 am - July 30, 2006 @ 12:00 pm
EMPOWERMENT OF THE ONE THOUSAND BUDDHAS AND TEACHINGS ON THE CLEAR-LIGHT DZOGCHEN.The empowerment is according to the terma of the great terțn Rigdzin Dudul Dorje, the emanation of Khyechung Lotsawa. This lineage was preserved and sustained by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, himself the emanation of both these masters.
The teaching will present the pith instructions of the ground, path and fruit of the Clear-Light Dzogchen: 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.
Saturday, 29 July: Ch̦khor Duchen – special ceremonies celebrating Buddha Shakyamuni’s first teaching in Sarnath, India.
