One Month Intensive Dzogchen Meditation Retreat
March 10, 2007 @ 9:00 am - April 7, 2007 @ 12:00 pm
Chetsun Nyingtik TeachingsThe first Dzogchen masters left this world in a characteristic way: in a rainbow body of light, after giving a final teaching to their disciples. In Tibet, the ones who spread the Nyingtik (heart-essence) teaching of Clear Light were the great masters who possessed their special direct transmission, chiefly the great scholar Vimalamitra and Guru Padmasambhava. Vimalamitra passed these instructions to Chetsun Senge Wangchuk, who also attained the rainbow body. The teachings he left were later revealed by the first Khyentse and are part of the secret category of Dzogchen pith instructions, Mengagde.
These rare and extraordinarily profound teachings precisely explain various essential methods for directly actualizing the innermost teachings of Ati Dzogpa Chenpo, the Great Perfection, the Peak Vehicle, which is the direct method for swiftly realizing the ultimate nature of the mind and attaining Buddhahood in the Rainbow Light Body.
Following in the footsteps of the ancient lineage of Nyingmas 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 Khenpos.
Students are required to pre-register at the earliest convenience as space is limited and other preparations need to be made so that we all may enjoy a harmonious and restful retreat. This retreat requires the committment to conclude together as one mandala with special dedication ceremonies on Saturday, April 7.
