Annual Teachings with Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche: “Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo”

With Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

June 14 - 16, 2019

We are so very happy to announce that once again, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will return to Gomde California to continue his 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.

These teachings at Gomde California will be truly auspicious. The illustrious master Jamgon Kongtrul, a contemporary of Chokgyur Lingpa, authored the definitive commentary on the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo. 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 second in a series of teachings that will continue to unfold over many years. Please join us in receiving these truly rare and profound instructions. Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will bestow the required empowerments for this teaching on Friday, June 14th, and will teach on Saturday (15th), as well as on the morning of Sunday (16th).

The Tukdrub Barchey Kunsel empowerment will begin at 3:00 pm on Friday. 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 will once again offer an overnight stay option on Thursday, June 13th. Please see the additional rates for this option, which will correspond with the lodging option you select 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 14th. No exceptions can be made. These empowerments are also required for our upcoming 35-Day Trinley Nyingpo Retreat with Lama Tsultrim Sangpo.

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.

Rinpoche will teach the commentary on the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo, entitled “The Light of Wisdom Vol 1,” which can be purchased here.

Registration will open in March. An announcement will be made on Facebook and via our email list.
