Shower of Blessings Group meditation Practice
By investigating the profound interdependence of life and death, we will deepen our courage, soften our hearts, and develop a clearer, more joyful approach to life’s ups and downs. This retreat will include meditation practice, teachings, and discussion on the topic of living and dying from a Buddhist perspective. Everyone is welcome.
The “bardo” teachings on the stages of life and death were brought to Tibet in the 8th century by Guru Padmasambhava and have been studied and practiced ever since, leading countless beings to enlightenment.
We will study and practice according to the lineage instructions of Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche (1938-2010) and Ven. Khentrul Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, great Nyingma masters and scholars who founded the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center to preserve the authentic teachings and practices of Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava. As a holder of the complete Nyingmapa lineage, Khentrul Tsewang Rinpoche is fully versed in the Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana schools, and is a master of Dzogchen, the most advanced tradition of meditation practice in Tibetan Buddhism.
