Teachings from the Three Proclamations of the Word. This is one of the four main cycles of great perfection teaching. It has been taught by the Buddha Tonpa Shenrab; hidden as treasure by Nyachen Lishu Tagring, and rediscovered by Zhoton Ngodrub Dragpa.

This cycle contains advanced and lucid explanations on Dzogchen practice.

For those who have participated in previous summer retreats, it is important to know that this year, during the retreat, there will be more emphasis on meditation.
