Empowerment and Teachings on Prajnaparamita, Mother of All the Buddhas
June 9, 2017 - June 11, 2017
Prajnaparamita, or the “Perfection of Wisdom,” is one of the most famous teachings in the Mahayana school of Buddhism. It describes the nature of reality as it is, and is the basis of the bodhisattva path, as well as the view and meditation in Vajrayana Buddhism. This teaching represents the second turning of the wheel of Dharma given by Buddha Shakyamuni, which unites wisdom and compassion as bodhichitta. By studying, contemplating, and meditating on these profound teachings, one will come to fully understand and absorb this Perfection of Wisdom. This is a rare opportunity to receive this empowerment and lineage instructions according the Nyingma tradition from Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche.During this retreat, Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche will give teachings on the Prajnaparamita, as well as instructions on the practice, mantra, and meditation of the Heart Sutra, a condensed recitation of the Prajnaparamita whereby one releases all disturbing thoughts and emotions to reveal the true nature of the mind and it’s environment.
