Monday, October 15th – Riwo Sangchod – “The Mountain of Burnt Offerings”Riwo Sangchod or the “Fire Puja” is an offering ceremony revealed by the terton LhatsÌ_n Namkha Jigmed, and is an important purification practice in our lineage for paying back karmic debts and averting obstacles through offerings of generosity and prayers of aspiration. The Venerable Rinpoches will give the history, transmission and instructions on how to perform this beautiful practice which is done every afternoon during the first summer retreat at Padma Samye Ling.
Tuesday October 16th – Chenrezig – The Buddha of Compassion
Chenrezig’s universal compassion embraces all beings and embodies the great compassion inseparable from the vast expanse of the Buddha’s wisdom mind. In the Buddha’s teachings it is from compassion that all the vastness and profundity of the bodhisattva path arises. Compassion is the awakened heart-mind itself. The Venerable Rinpoches will give transmission and teachings on “The Lotus Garland,” which is a very special Chenrezig practice that was revealed by the terton Tsasum Lingpa in the cycle of teachings known as “The Great Compassionate One Who Overpowers Samsara and Nirvana.” Tsasum Lingpa, a terton and crazy wisdom yogi, was also the founder of Gochen Monastery.
