Dzogchen practice and teaching retreat
Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche
09 – 14 April 2023
We are delighted that Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche has accepted to continue with his transmission and explanations of the Dzogchen teachings based on the 'The Golden Instructions of Drenpa Namkha' (Drenpa Serdam).
The cycle is a compilation of several Dzogchen texts and teachings that Kuntu Zangpo directly transmitted to the great master Drenpa Namkha. From Drenpa Namkha, these teachings were then transmitted to his son Tsewang Rigdzin. From him and other deities, masters, and Dakinis in the form of visions, the transmission was received by Master Shense Lhaje, who eventually wrote down these visionary encounters. In this way, those teachings reached us in an unbroken transmission through our teachers, including instructions on the preliminaries, the main practice, the practice of the 'inner fire', and other teachings.
'Drenpa Serdam' is thereby a complete guide for the Dzogchen practice.
Having started teaching this text in 2021,
Rinpoche will again combine text translations, explanations, commentaries, and meditation sessions.
The seminar offers a precious opportunity to deepen the understanding and practice of Dzogchen under the guidance of a highly esteemed teacher presenting those instructions purely and directly, highlighting the essential points.
All those seriously interested in meditation are welcome, including those who have not attended the previous teachings of this cycle and newcomers to Yungdrung Bön.
