March 26, 2011 - April 24, 2011
Dzogchen Pith Instructions on His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche’sMountain Retreat Instructions: Extracting the Quintessence of Accomplishment (Richo)
“The vital instructions for mountain retreat, expounding in its essential nakedness the practice of the most secret Great Perfection, put into our hands in a form that is easy to understand. This will be explained in three main topics:
1. The Preparation: having cut the ties of passion and clinging, how to purify one’s nature by keeping the mind turned towards the Dharma.
2. The Main Practice: having cut misconceptions about View, Meditation, and Action, how to experience the practice.
3. The Continuation of the Practice: how to keep the samaya vows, and complete all the subsequent actions of this life with Dharma.
Held in noble silence in an ideal retreat setting, this is a rare opportunity to receive Dzogchen pith instructions from Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, and to deepen your practice with daily individual and group meditation sessions.
Following in the footsteps of the ancient lineage of Nyingmapas, we will put these rare and precious teachings into practice with joy and devotion. Held in noble silence, this retreat is arranged to provide a space to receive the pith instructions and deepen personal dzogchen meditation with the guidance of our beloved Khenpo Rinpoche.
Students are requested to pre-register at their earliest convenience as space is limited and preparations need to be made so that we all may enjoy a harmonious and restful retreat. This month-long retreat requires the commitment to stay on-site and conclude together as one mandala with special dedication ceremonies on Saturday, April 23th.
