Kama is the distant oral transmission lineage that contains the essential practice aspect of all the Sutra and Tantra teachings of the Buddha. The close lineage of terma, or “hidden treasures” is the extraordinary legacy of Guru Padmasambhava, which includes secret teachings that were concealed in the earth, and even in the mindstreams of his disciples. Termas are revealed at a later prophesied time by destined practitioners known as tertons, who are reincarnations of the 25 principal disciples of Guru Padmasambhava. The terma lineage preserves the teaching and keeps the blessings fresh and intact for future generations.
During this Shedra, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche will discuss the meaning and types of terma, their purpose, how they are revealed, and will highlight the life stories and termas of many great tertons, including Nyangral Nyima Ozer, Guru Chowang, Minling Terchen Gyurme Dorje, Tsasum Lingpa, and others.Find out more »
