Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo “A Gradual Path on the Heart of Wisdom”
Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
June 15 - 17
We are thrilled to announce that Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will return to Gomde California this summer to begin a series of teachings on Chokgyur Lingpa’s profound terma, the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo. The root text for Gomde California’s core practices, this profound teaching of Padmasambhava offers detailed instruction on the entire Buddhist path, including the preliminary practices, the generation stage and completion stage practices, and the practice of Dzogchen. Heavy with pith instructions, the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo can only be taught by an authentic master.
This teaching at Gomde California is truly an auspicious event. The illustrious master Jamgon Kongtrul, a close student of Chokgyur Lingpa, authored the definitive commentary on the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo. Now, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, a reincarnation of Jamgon Kongtrul, will offer instruction on this profound text to students here at Chokgyur Lingpa’s lineage center.
This will be the first weekend in a series of teachings that will unfold over many years. Join us now, at the beginning of this cycle, to receive these truly rare instructions that will powerfully enhance our practice. Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will bestow the required empowerments for this teaching on Friday, June 15th, and will teach on Saturday (16th), as well as on Sunday (17th) morning.
The Tukdrub Barchey Kunsel empowerment will begin at 3:00 pm on Friday, June 15th. Registration will open at 11:00 a.m and close at 1:30 p.m. If you cannot make the drive to Gomde on Friday morning, we offer an overnight stay option on Thursday, June 14th. Please see the additional rates for this option, which correspond with the lodging option you have selected for the entire retreat.
Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche has clearly stated that in order to study this text you must have the Tukdrub Barchey Kunsel empowerment. You will not be permitted to receive these teachings unless you have received this empowerment in the past or receive it from Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche on June 15th. No exceptions can be made.
We look forward to having you at Gomde for what we expect to be the beginning of a series of truly profound teachings pertaining directly to the heart of our lineage.
