Ewam Choden is happy to refer you to the following upcoming event.

A TALK by Her Eminence DAGYUM CHENMO KUSHO SAKYA
on Meditation in Daily Life


WHEN: Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
WHERE: Sofia University Auditorium, 1069 E Meadow Circle, Palo Alto, CA 94303

Free of charge, but you are requested to RSVP--Click here.

Dagmola (Jamyang) Sakya was perhaps the first Tibetan woman ever to immigrate to America. Her full title reads Her Eminence Dag-Yum Kusho Sakya, which denotes her high-ranking status as the wife of one of the most eminent masters in the Sakya tradition, His Holiness Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Rinpoche. She is one of the very few senior Tibetan ladies who were born in pre-Communist Tibet, but are now recognized as outstanding teachers and live in America. A combination of the most unlikely circumstances enabled Dagmola to become one of the first Tibetan women to teach in the West.
Born 1936 in a tiny village in East Tibet, she was the only girl allowed to go to school. Instead of complying with the established system of arranged marriages, Dagchen Rinpoche fought for her hand. After escaping from Tibet with her family, she made a new home in Seattle with her five boys, while holding down a nine-to-five job at a blood bank.
She also quietly devoted herself inwardly to spiritual practice under the guidance of her revered uncle, H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche. H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche encouraged her to begin teaching Buddhism and granting empowerments. Thus, Dagmola is authorized to accept the role of Lama by one of the foremost Tibetan Buddhist masters of the Sakya Order and by other esteemed Tibetan Lamas.
Dagmola regularly bestows empowerments and teaches at Sakya Monastery in Seattle, WA. She has founded the Mother Tara Center/Tara Ling in San Gabriel, California and established centers in Kona, Hawaii; Flagstaff, Arizona; and Mexico City.

Her story is written in her book, Princess in the Land of Snows.
Her experience as a working mother of five resonates with many students. When students ask her for advice on how to combine a spiritual path with the stress of modern life, she does not need to put herself in their shoes - she knows the challenges only too well. "Practice is in every day life, not just sitting on the cushion," Dagmola says. "Every move, every breath, every thought is practice.”
Dagmola will use her life experience to talk about meditation in general and specifically:
• How to maintain a meditation practices with such a busy life
• Benefits from her practices in daily life
• Meditation in daily life
• Guidance in some meditation techniques

Saturday and Sunday, February 10-11, 2018

In Vajrayana Buddhism, practitioners use a diversity of skillful methods to accomplish what are known as the "four awakening activities." These activities are not the ordinary actions of karma but the extraordinary expressions of the Buddha's wisdom and compassion that bring ultimate benefit to the world.

We are pleased to announce that in February 2018, our Head Lama, H.E. Avikrita Rinpoche, will bestow four very special initiations and teachings related to the four awakening activities of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and eliminating.

Avikrita Rinpoche will bestow the initiations with in-depth explanations about the meaning of the four awakening activities and how we can integrate the practices into our daily lives.

NEW 14-day Awakening Retreat: Jan 19-Feb 1, 2018 at Cloud Mountain Retreat Center in Castle Rock, Washington, USA. Register at http://www.cloudmountain.org/retreats?retreat=85. All accommodations are single or double rooms (no triples).

This retreat will be the same as our regular 2-week retreat (see description on Descriptions page), except that the retreat will be set in the larger context of awakening. The first few days will include the overall View of enlightenment, and the basis in the heart for a full practice and motivation. The majority or the retreat will focus on the samatha practice. And for the last few days of the retreat, we will build upon the foundation of samatha concentration to explore the non-dual awareness, (and how this builds upon samatha and vipassana), which enables one to be present with what is with eyes open, awake to the world.

Venerable Khenpo Rinpoche to Lead Opening of Three-Year Retreat and Offer Teachings at KCC

June 8—10: Teachings at KCC
June 16: Opening of Three-Year Retreat at SCOL

Venerable Khenpo Lodro Donyo RinpocheIn gratitude, KCC is pleased to announce that on June 16, Venerable Khenpo Rinpoche will be with us to lead the Gate Opening Ceremony for our Three-Year retreatants. Rinpoche will also offer teachings in Portland on the weekend of June 8—10. We will provide more details soon. But for now, it is enough to recognize the extraordinary nature of Rinpoche’s decision to be with us on this historic occasion for KCC. What follows are Lama Michael’s thoughts on this great fortune.

....


 цитата:
By Lama Michael Conklin

As many of you know, Venerable Khenpo Rinpoche visited Portland and SCOL just last June. In February, we invited him to join and preside over the ceremonies ending the Three-Year Retreat. At first, Rinpoche responded that he would be engaged in a retreat and could not come.

Very recently, Lama Eric Triebelhorn told us that Rinpoche had changed his mind. The completion of this first Three-Year Retreat at SCOL, using English translations, conducted and attended by Westerners, is so important to the vitality of the Dharma that he would find a way to be here with us at the Opening Ceremony.

Let us take a moment to appreciate the significance of this. Khenpo Rinpoche, truly a jewel of the Dharma and our lineage, feels that this event is so important that he must cancel other commitments in order to come 5,000 miles to be here with us. For me, it will be as if Bokar Rinpoche himself had somehow managed to come to see the first ripened fruit on the tree of his aspiration to create SCOL.

Khenpo Rinpoche’s presence will speak volumes of the value he places on this endeavor. His words will increase our understanding of the purpose and the benefits of such long retreats, not only for the individual participants but for their families, the Sangha and the community beyond.

Many people at the Opening will not have encountered a Three-Year Retreat before. They will come with open hearts and open minds. If teachings are given, they will be ready to listen. Over time, by seeing the ceremony and hearing Rinpoche's words, some individuals may be moved to consider undertaking a Three-Year Retreat themselves. Others may wish to give their support to future retreats. At the very least, those attending the opening will have a unique experience that will positively affect their entire lives.

As for the retreatants, to meet with Rinpoche and have his blessing will be so memorable. He will also meet with them the day before the opening. It may sound like hyperbole, but many of us have witnessed this kind of direct connection and transmission. In so many ways we cannot now count, Rinpoche’s attendance will benefit the opening of the retreat, the community of KCC, and the future of both SCOL, the urban center, and indeed all beings.

Gyalshen Institute (CA)

Summer Retreat 2018 The 21 Nails from
the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu


July 24-29 2018 We at Gyalshen Institute cordially invite you to our summer 2018 residential silent retreat. There Chaphur Rinpoche will give teachings and instructions on “The 21 Nails” from the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu.

Teaching Topic

The 21 Nails is one of the innermost secret teachings from the Bön Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu, the 21 essential points of Dzogchen practice, directly cutting through doubts about one’s natural state by tracing the nature of mind back to its source.

The teachings of the Twenty-One Nails are a direct expression of enlightenment—our natural mind. Each nail describes this natural state from a different point of view. The views are called “nails” or “seals” because they stabilize the experiential understanding of the natural state. These teachings are said to have come directly from the primordial buddha, Küntu Zangpo, passed by mind-to-mind transmission to eight successive buddhas, and then transmitted orally to 24 human Bön lineage holders, all of whom were yogis and siddhas. It was first written down by Yangton Sherap Gyaltsen in the 11th century. These teachings have been transmitted in an unbroken succession down to our teachers of the present day.


Silent Retreat

2017 was Gyalshen Institute’s first residential summer retreat, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

When asked about next year (2018) Rinpoche immediately chose the 21 Nails as his teaching topic, and was very enthusiastic about conducting this retreat in silence.

Silence is especially important when one is trying to catch the nature of mind.

“When the outer sounds are silenced, it is much easier to hear the unceasing sound of the mind’s nature.”

Rinpoche will also give the transmission for the entire Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu. The Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu contains the 21 nails and is considered one of the most important and the most comprehensive manual for Dzogchen practice in the Bön tradition.

This retreat will be conducted according to Bön tradition. We will give the 4 offerings daily (Sang Chöd, Chotor / water offering, burnt food offering and Chöd). We will also practice tsa lung / trul khor in the mornings and tögel in the early evening.

Please see the sample schedule below for more details.

Location
Please plan to join us for the second annual Gyalshen Residential Summer Retreat. Take this opportunity to dive deeply into the Bön spiritual tradition while enjoying the profound sense of community possible in a residential five day retreat. The San Francisco Theological Seminary located in San Anselmo, California is a perfect spot for us to be together in the presence of Chaphur Rinpoche as our teacher and guide.

SUMMER TEACHINGS
Ganges Mahamudra Pith Instructions & Chakrasamvara Commentary, Instruction, Empowerment and Retreat
by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche and Venerable Drupon Rinchen Dorje



June 30 – July 8


Registration Opens June1

This summer, dharma blessings will shower down like rain! Summer Teachings will include pith instruction on the incomparable Ganges Mahamudra, followed by commentary, teaching, empowerment and practice retreat of the profound Chakrasamvara deity practice.

June 30 – July 1: H.E. Garchen Rinpoche will offer pith instruction on the Ganges Mahamudra – Tilopa’s radiant instruction to Naropa on how to rest in the pure and luminous state of our natural mind.

July 2 – July 4: H.E. Garchen Rinpoche and Ven. Drupon Rinchen Dorje will offer profound commentary and teaching on the Chakrasamvara practice, culminating with Chakrasamvara empowerment in the afternoon session of July 4.

July 5 – July 8: Garchen Rinpoche and Ven. Drupon Rinchen Dorje will lead a Chakrasamvara Retreat.

Chakrasamvara is highest yoga tantra practice in the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition. In the Drigung Kagyu lineage, the most popular and common Chakrasamvara deity practice is in the form of the Five-deity Chakrasamvara. The Five-deity Chakrasamvara includes the central deity of the two-armed, single-faced male Chakrasamvara deity in union with the female Vajravarahi deity (these two in union are taken as a single deity) and four surrounding dakinis in the four directions.

Ven. Drupon Rinchen Dorje has said that “…the particular unsurpassed union tantra of Chakrasamavara, the king of tantras [is] equal to space. The teacher Vajradhara rose up in the form of the fierce compassionate emanation Chakrasamvara and taught this tantra. The power of the blessings of this tantra is said to be more exalted than others. Most of the mahasiddhas of India were renowned to have attained the supreme and common accomplishments through the gateway of Chakrasamvara. In Tibet Lord Marpa taught:

The tantra of Hevajra is renowned as profound. Chakrasamvara is known as the quintessence. ….

Thus, this deity has been the practice of the oceans of Kagyü siddhas. It is the secret path that has been relied upon by the hundred of siddhas of India and Tibet. It is the swift path for those with faith, diligence, and wisdom. It is the heart nectar of the Buddha’s teachings.”

Chakrasamvara requires empowerment prior to participation in the practice.

Finally, as a special treat for these Summer Teachings, we will offer Daily Yoga Practice with Joyanna Maria Ananda. As a student, practitioner and guide of Qigong and Yoga for most of her adult life, she has been blessed to have studied with Master Teachers in China, Tibet and India. Inspired in the natural blend of these eastern sciences, her classes are unique and spontaneous, joyfully creative and alive. We are so fortunate to have Joyanna lead daily classes, an excellent way to prepare our bodies and channels for the deepening practices offered during our Summer Teachings at the Garchen Buddhist Institute.

CHAKRASAMVARA MONTH LONG RETREAT
Led by the Venerable Drupon Rinchen Dorje
July 9 – August 5

Immediately following our Summer Teachings, where instruction, empowerment and practice retreat of the Five-deity Chakrasamvara will be given, we offer an opportunity to go deep into this profound deity yoga practice under the guidance of Venerable Drupon Rinchen Dorje. Six participants will live in the retreat village and practice three sessions a day in their own hut, and one group session in the village temple. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to properly do a deity retreat, and all the rituals involved. This retreat is a prerequisite for the three year retreat program.

Yidam practice is a very special tantric practice in which one transforms one’s normal, samsaric experience of reality into an extraordinary experience of the true state of all phenomena. While the teachings of the sutra-level consider ignorance as the root cause of samsaric existence, the tantric teachings identify the ordinary appearances as the root cause of samsara. The practice of Yidam is a special and profound method to quickly transform ordinary appearances into enlightened appearances. To be more accurate, this practice uncovers the actual state of appearances and reveal them to be pure and empty unceasingly. Yidam practice does not make ordinary appearances into something they are not — pure and empty of inherent existence. Rather, it uncovers the purity and emptiness that have always been there but obscured and unseen.

Due to the special nature of these teachings, it is best that one receive the details of these teachings directly from an authentic teacher of the lineage. Thus, this opportunity to practice in a small group, under the guidance of Venerable Drupon Rinchen Dorje, is rare and precious indeed.

The retreat village is drenched in blessings. At its center is the village temple, as well as a common kitchen building, shower/toilet, and laundry.

Cost: $1000

If you are interested in attending this special retreat, please email for an application to questions@garchen.net

Sakya temple Seattle
As part of his short visit to America this July, our Head Lama H.E. Khöndung Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche will visit Sakya Monastery in Seattle to bestow a precious day of empowerments and teachings called Dharma for Life and Death. This will introduce us to a rare practice for enhancing our life in Dharma called Chagdongma, and support Sakya Monastery's regular Shitro practice dedicated to those who have passed away.


Chagdongma Long Life Empowerment
Sunday, July 22, 2018 from 10:30am-12:00pm
Among the sacred termas (hidden treasure teachings) of Guru Rinpoche revealed in the Northern Treasures that are a specialty of the Sakya lineage's Phuntsok Phodrang, the Chagdongma is a profound empowerment for enhancing spiritual practice, lifespan and healing based on Buddha Amitabha and the Thousand Buddhas of the Fortunate Aeon.

H.E. Khöndung Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche
will bestow the rare Chagdongma empowerment with explanation of how its practice can
bring about extraordinary benefits for a life in Dharma.

No registration required. No charge for entry. Seating is first-come, first-served. Overflow seating available with live closed circuit video.

Shitro Empowerment

Sunday, July 22, 2018 from 2:30-4:00pm
To support the Shitro practice for the deceased established by H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang at Sakya Monastery, H.E. Khöndung Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche will bestow the empowerment of the 'hundred peaceful and wrathful deities' known as Shitro. This practice relates to the teachings found in the classic Bardo Thodrol or 'Tibetan Book of the Dead', purifying the body-mind continuum of the practitioner and those they dedicate the practice for in order to benefit the deceased and utilize death for awakening.

It is considered that just to receive the blessings of the empowerment can aid practitioners at the point of death.

No registration required. No charge for entry. Seating is first-come, first-served. Overflow seating available with live closed circuit video.

Refuge Ceremony
For those who wish participate in a Refuge Ceremony with His Eminence prior to the initiations, it will take place 9:00-9:30am on July 22, 2018. You can contact the office at monastery@sakya.org to sign up for Refuge.

*Sponsors will have priority seating, a complimentary lunch with His Holiness the Sakya Trichen Rinpoche (with a group photo), and an opportunity to participate in a mandala offering.

Please register at: http://conta.cc/2IlmMwm
The Chakrasamvara empowerment, of the Ghantapada tradition, has five deities within the mandala. To emphasize the importance of this particular practice, His Holiness the Sakya Trichen commented:

"Unlike other mandala such as Hevajra or Kalachakra, the Chakrasamvara mandala is still fully manifested and active in the twenty-four holy places in India. For this reason, Chakrasamvara and his consort, Vajrayogini, are considered one of the most effective deities of our time."

The prerequisite for taking this empowerment is Refuge. There are no commitments. This empowerment fullfils the prerequisite for a Vajrayogini empowerment by a Sakya Lama.

His Holiness the Sakya Trichen Rinpoche is the forty-first head of the Sakya Order of Tibetan Buddhism. He is a peerless and world-renowned master of the Dharma in general and the Vajrayana in particular. His compassion and wisdom are an inspiration to all those who have the fortune to meet him.

Precious Treasury of the Way of Abiding


Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15
1 – 5 pm $60 each day


3717 SE Washington St. Portland, OR, 97214

The Precious Treasury of the Way of Abiding is a Dzogchen text by Longchenpa, considered
to be one of the greatest Dzogchen masters of all time. Dzogchen, translated as “The Great
Perfection,” is the ultimate teaching of all of the enlightened ones and is regarded as the
culmination of all spiritual paths. In Dzogchen we are introduced the primordially pure
state of enlightenment and are shown how to abide in that pristine essence that has been
our actual ever-present condition from the very beginning. This particular text of
Longchenpa's is a discourse on the four unique discipline-less disciplines (samayas) of
Dzogchen ― ineffability (transcending), openness, spontaneous presence, and oneness.

Venerable Lama Rinchen was born in Tibet and is a scholar and meditation master in the Nyingma
lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. For many years was the personal attendant to His Holiness Dudjom
Rinpoche, former supreme head of the Nyingma lineage. Currently, Lama Rinchen lives in Nepal
where he is assembling an extensive library of sacred works. He speaks nearly fluent English.

Lecture Series With Prof. Dr. Harunaga Isaacson: The Bhramahara (‘Remover Of Error’) By Ratnākaraśānti.
https://www.tantrictraditions.com/news/

In an intensive series of lectures beginning on Wednesday, August 22 and continuing through Tuesday, August 28, Professor Dr. Harunaga Isaacson will translate and explain the whole of the Bhramahara, a profound and comprehensive Sādhana of Hevajra that has reached us in its original Sanskrit.

Its eleventh-century author Ratnākaraśānti [Rinchen 'byung gnas zhiba] is arguably the most brilliant and insightful of all the Indian masters of Tantric Buddhism of whom we have surviving works; and he is all the more remarkable since his contributions were not limited to the Tantric domain. He also produced major works in the general Mahāyānist domains of Yogācāra and Prajñāpāramitā; and he has much to say on the crucial issue of how the relationship between the Tantric and non-Tantric, between the Way of Mantras and the Way of the Sūtras, should be understood.

The schedule of talks is as follows:

Wednesday, August 22
6:00 to 8:00 pm

Thursday, August 23
6:00 to 8:00 pm

Saturday, August 25
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Sunday, August 26
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Monday, August 27
6:00 to 8:00 pm

Tuesday, August 28
6:00 to 8:00 pm

On Friday, August 24, there will be a lecture by Professor Alexis Sanderson, Academic Director of ISTS, on a topic to be announced.

REGISTER NOW: $350 General
Sessions will be held at the Movement Center, 1021 NE 33rd Ave Portland, OR.

Accommodations are available at The Movement Center by reservation. For information about the types of rooms available and rates.

Nyingtig Yabzhi: The Four-fold Heart Essence
Empowerments (wang), Reading Transmission (lung), and Explanation (tri)

November 2 - 11, 2018 with Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche in Santa Fe, New Mexico


 цитата:
A multi-year cycle on the whole of Longchenpa's cycles with an emphasis on Dzogchen, in the lineage and transmission of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. The retreat will begin with the Nyingtig Yabzhi empowerments, along with some of the oral transmission, and beginning with an explanation of Semnyi Ngalso.

The intention for these teachings is to emphasize the actual instructions and commentaries on the Nyingtig Yabzhi. One of these explanations (tri yig) will be the extremely rare teaching of the"Stainless Oral Instructions" (Drimey Shalung) by Jamgon Kongtrul which Tulku Sang-ngag received directly from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

 цитата:
Nyingtig Yabshi Empowerments and Reading Transmission

This message is an invitation for those interested in receiving the following transmissions and teachings. The heart of the
exceedingly short path of the 6.4 million verses of the Dzogchen Tantras, and the quintessence of the seventeen tantras, is the Pith
Instruction Class of Luminosity Great Perfection.

In Tibet, the progenitors of this great chariot were Vimalamitra and Padmasambhava. These teachings were passed by
Vima to Nyang Tingzin Zangpo, beginning a lineage of practitioners who attained rainbow body. Subsequently and in secret these
teachings were passed to Lodro Wangchuk, Drom Rinchenbar, Neten Dangma Lhungyal, Chetsun Senge Wangchuk and others,
establishing the lineage known as Vima Nyingtig. The Master Padmasambhava imparted these teachings to Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal
and other wisdom dakinis. They were then passed successively to Pema Ledretsel, establishing the transmission of the Khandro
Nyingtig.

These two cycles make up the two Mother Heart Essence Teachings (nyingtig ma nyi). The entirety of these two streams of
teachings fell to the omniscient Dharma King Longchen Rabjam who combined them together. His commentary on the Vima
Nyingtig is known as Lama Yangtig, and his single summation of the quintessential meaning of the Khandro Nyingtig is known as
the Khandro Yangtig. These four—Vima Nyingtig, Khandro Nyingtig, Lama Yangtig, and Khandro Yangtig—are known either as
the Four Mother and Child Nyingtig or the Nyingtig Yabshi (Four-fold Nyingtig). Longchenpa’s encapsulation of the profound
key points of pith instructions of both mother and child cycles is known as the Zabmo Yangtig.
The entryway into this class of secret pith instructions consists of the stages of empowerment, which ripen the mind, and
receiving the liberating instructions. The supportive teachings for these texts are the extensive Pandita Cycle, the Seven Treasuries,
both profound and extensive teachings that show a complete and unmistaken path, a great chariot of the definitive meaning.
Additional supportive texts include the Three Cycles of Relaxation, Three Cycles of Natural Liberation, Three Cycles of Dispelling
Darkness, and others.

The confluence of the streams of the short and long lineages of these teachings was held by the supreme refuge, the lord
of the mandala, Dilgo Khyentse Vajradhara. For more than a decade, while serving at the lotus feet of this sublime being, our own
incomparable guide, the magical wisdom manifestation of the glorious Gyalwa Choyang, one of the nine heart sons of the Guru
Rinpoche, the sixth emanation of Drime Lingpa, supreme Gochen Tulku, Namchak Sang-ngag Tenzin Rinpoche, received these
teachings. He received them not just once, but again and again.

He also received the pith instructions of Dzogchen from the great disciple of Khenchen Ngagi Wangpo––Pema Ledretsel–
–Urgyen Chemchok, a supreme emanation who achieved rainbow body. For nine years Tulku Sang-ngag relied upon this master,
taking him as his refuge and lord of the enlightened family. These teachings included the entirety of the whispered lineage of pith
instructions of the Luminosity Secret Essence (osel sangwa nyingtig), which he was taught and contemplated deeply.
When the time came, in accord with prophecy, Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche began to spread these teaching in America, the
land of the west. For almost twenty years Tulku Sang-ngag has taught at his main seat, Ewam Montana’s Sang-ngag Ling, The
Garden of 1000 Buddhas; and in Ewam Santa Fe, at Pema Khandro Ling, and Longchen Ritro. He has turned vastly the wheel of
the ripening and liberating teachings of the Pith Instruction Class of Great Perfection. He imparts these teachings to fortunate
students who have already trained their minds well through the preliminary practices (ngondro). We are extremely fortunate and
grateful that he teaches and continues to teach.

In accord with the requests made by a number of western students in America who are striving in spiritual practice, this
spiritual protector graciously accepted to begin offering, in particular, the reading transmissions and empowerments of the above
mentioned lineage of Dzogchen Nyingtig, and the stream of transmission of supporting teachings including the Three Cycles of
Relaxation, Three Cycles of Natural Liberation, the Seven Treasuries of Longchenpa, and the extremely rare lineage of the
summation of key points of the pith instructions of the Nyingtig Yabshi, a commentary on the Mother and Child Nyingtig called
Stainless Guidance (Drime Shelung).

This year the teachings will be imparted in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on November 2-11, 2018.
This message was prepared by the Ewam Pema Khandro Ling Nyingtig Yabshi Organizing Committee on April 14, 2018.

Tina Rasmussen and Stephen Snyder, Friday evening, Jan. 25 and a day-long retreat on Saturday, Jan 26, 9a-4p.
Tina and Stephen provided this information about the retreat:

“In concentration and serenity (samatha) meditation, we return our awareness to one object of meditation to the exclusion of everything else, thereby collecting and unifying the mind stream. Samatha meditation “builds the muscle” of concentration, enabling us to turn away from the pull of our busy mind—and our electronics—and settle into the serenity of our deeper nature. The practice also reveals with heightened clarity our habitual patterns that cause us to suffer on and off the cushion. As we turn away from these patterns, laser-like awareness can develop into profound stillness, deep joy, and the possibility of meditative absorptions known as jhanas. The teaching is in the lineage of Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw of Burma, considered by many to be one of the leading meditation masters alive today, and is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. There will be instructions, meditation, silence, and periods of teaching and questions. Highlights of recent neuroscience research will also be provided.

The day-long retreat will be non-residential, and held on a dana basis.

    SIX YOGAS OF NAROPA

    June 3 -12 2019

    Registration now open!

    The Six Yogas of Naropa are a comprehensive set of tantric completion practices that are widely revered in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. These practices have been passed down through the centuries through a verified lineage in which H. E. Choden Rinpoche was a key figure, and he passed along these and other teachings to Geshe Gyalten Kungka. The yogic adept and scholar of profound teachings, Naropa, compiled the six yogas into a pragmatic set of instructions that have been used by many Buddhist yogis to attain enlightenment in a single lifetime and therefore to be of the utmost service to humanity.
    This retreat is both theoretical (study) and pragmatic (experiential) and will require a steadfast motivation and intention of the student/practitioner to gain the most from the courses being offered. Again, this is a rare opportunity to receive teachings, practice instructions and answers to profound questions from a lineage holder and practitioner of the Six Yogas of Naropa, Geshe Gyalten Kungka. Through the empowerment blessings of Yamantaka given by Khensur Ripoche, and the kind direction of Geshe Gyalten each student/practitioner will have the opportunity to greatly advance their understanding of the dharma, and their insight into the nature of mind.

    Prerequisite: Previous highest yoga empowerment (Chakrasamvara, Hevajra, Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka or Kakachakra), or the empowerment given prior to the course offering, Yamantaka by Khensur Rinpoche.

    Teaching on Dzogchen, the "21 Nails", from Shang Shung Nyen Gyud

    March 29-31st, 2019 10 AM-4:30 PM CA, USA

    Join us for the second installment of Chaphur Rinpoche’s teaching on the 21 Nails.

    About the 21 Nails:

    One of the innermost secret teachings from the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud (Aural Transmission of Zhang Zhung). Each of the 21 nails describes an essential point of Dzogchen practice – Directly cutting through doubts about one’s Natural State by tracing the Nature of Mind back to its Source.

    The teaching of the Twenty-One Nails is a direct expression of Enlightenment – our Natural Mind. Each Nail describes this Natural State from a different point of view. The views are called “Nails” or “Seals” because they stabilize ones experiential understanding of the Natural State. These teachings are said to have come directly from the Primordial Buddha, Küntu Zangpo, who then passed them down by direct mind-to-mind Transmission to eight successive Buddhas. It was then transmitted orally to 24 human Bön Lineage Holders, all of whom were yogis and siddhas who achieved the Rainbow Light Body.

    In the 7th century Gyerpung Nangzher Lodpo set down the teachings in writing for the first time in the Zhang Zhung language after receiving them from Tapihritsa, the 25th Zhang Zhung Master, during their third and final encounter.

    This Teaching has been transmitted in an unbroken succession of Lineage Holders down to our Teachers of the present day.

    LOCATION:

    1608 Bonita Road, San Pablo, CA 94806

    Lunch will be provided

    A few words about this Gyalshen event:

    As many of you are aware, Gyalshen Institute has invited His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin Rinpoche to give Dzogchen teachings at our summer residential retreat Click Here. For this reason, Chaphur Rinpoche will be giving the second part of the 21 Nails in March as a weekend teaching. This teaching will not replace our summer (non-residential) retreat which will run from August 28th to September 1st on the Heart Drops of Kuntu Zangpo.

    We will briefly review the nails that were covered in our 2018 summer retreat and then continue through the rest of the text. Previous attendance of Gyalshen’s 2018 summer retreat is NOT required – this retreat is open to anyone who is interested in Dzogchen practice.

    Geshe Gyalten's June retreat on the Six Yogas of Naropa in San Jose California.

    https://www.awakeningvajrainternational.org

    https://www.awakeningvajrainternational.org/events/special-retreats/six-yogas-of-naropa/

    What are the Six Yogas

    The Six Yogas of Naropa are a comprehensive set of tantric completion practices that are widely revered in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. These practices have been passed down through the centuries through a verified lineage in which H. E. Choden Rinpoche was a key figure, and he passed along these and other teachings to Geshe Gyalten Kungka. The yogi adept and scholar of profound teachings, Naropa, compiled the six yogas into a pragmatic set of instructions that have been used by many Buddhist yogis to attain enlightenment in a single lifetime and therefore to be of the utmost service to humanity.

    It is very rare and a precious opportunity to receive the teaching of one of these yogas, let alone the complete set. In the East, within most traditions, the Six Yogas of Naropa are kept very secret, and most practitioners do not learn them unless they are in a three-year retreat setting.

    A Comprehensive Overview of the Six Yogas of Naropa is the first year study in a series of courses. In the second, third and fourth years two of the yogas will be studied in more depth culminating in a month-long meditation retreat in the fifth year. It is AVI’s intent, through the guidance of Geshe Gyalten Kungka, to help all attendees deepen their understanding through diligent study, contemplation and practice of these high tantric methods that indivisibly connect great bliss with wisdom resulting in realizing the ultimate nature of one’s mind.

    A List of the Yogas of Naropa

    Inner Heat Yoga (tummo) – Generating inner heat is a foundational completion practice. Without a basic understanding of the process of generating inner heat, and the actuality of achieving it a practitioner will not experience some of the signs related to the channels and winds, and recognition of non-dual awareness may not arise.
    Illusory Body Yoga
    Clear Light Yoga
    Dream State Yoga – This yoga involves various practices to utilize the dream state as a means of transformation.
    Intermediate State Yoga (Bardo) – Within this yoga are the illusory body and dream yoga among other yogic practices.
    Transference of Consciousness Yoga (Phowa) – For those who during this lifetime are not able to achieve a stable awareness of Clear Light, the Transference of Consciousness at the time of death to a pure Buddhafield is taught.
    This retreat is both theoretical (study) and pragmatic (experiential) and will require a steadfast motivation and intention of the student/practitioner to gain the most from the courses being offered. Again, this is a rare opportunity to receive teachings, practice instructions and answers to profound questions from a lineage holder and practitioner of the Six Yogas of Naropa, Geshe Gyalten Kungka. Through the empowerment blessings of Yamantaka given by Khensur Ripoche, and the kind direction of Geshe Gyalten each student/practitioner will have the opportunity to greatly advance their understanding of the dharma, and their insight into the nature of mind.

    Mahakala Initiation
    bestowed by
    H.E. Gyana Vajra Rinpoche


    Seattle



    Thursday, April 25, 2019
    6:00 pm Check-in and preparation for welcoming ceremony
    7:00 pm Mahakala Initiation begins
    Suggested Donation: $55 Members, $75 Non-Members
    Registration is strongly encouraged: https://conta.cc/2uGH6E9
    This initiation is open to all Buddha Dharma practitioners who have taken Refuge.

    Sakya Monastery is pleased to announce that His Eminence Gyana Vajra Rinpoche will bestow the Mahakala initiation. Mahakala is one of the most revered Tibetan protector deities. His purpose is to protect the Dharma and to help in overcoming negative obstacles on one's path to enlightenment.

    After receiving the Mahakala initiation, one should commit to do the Mahakala practice in one or more of the following ways:
    Recite the short (5 minute) Mahakala Practice (available at Sakya Monastery Shop) at least twice a month on the 14th and 29th day of each Tibetan lunar month
    Join the regular one hour monthly Mahakala puja/religious service at Sakya Monastery on the 29th day of each Tibetan lunar month.
    Complete a Vajrapani retreat to enable one to do the Mahakala puja/religious service alone at home.
    His Eminence Khöndung Gyana Vajra Rinpoche was born in Dehradun, Northern India, on 5th July 1979, the tenth day of the fifth lunar month of the Tibetan lunar calendar, on the holy birth anniversary of Guru Padmasambhava. His birth was accompanied by auspicious signs, blessing the Sakya Dolma Phodrang with the arrival of a second lineage holder of the glorious Sakyapa Khön Tradition.

    His Eminence was given the Sanskrit name of Gyana Vajra (Tibetan: Yeshe Dorje), a practice that began with the birth of his noble father, His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trichen. At the age of four, he began to read and write in Tibetan, and was remarkably proficient in his learning. Under the guidance of his noble father and of Venerable Lama Rinchen Sangpo, his early years were dedicated to the study of religious texts, reading, writing, grammar, memorization of the main Sakya prayers and the performance of rituals.

    A Long and Joyful Life/Tsewang Rigzin on Zoom


    Saturday, April 20th, 8-9 am Pacific Time on Zoom

    The great master of Bon, Tsewang Rigzin, is considered to have become the main long life deity of Yungdrung Bon. He taught that clearing the soul of negative influences helps to increase the life span, heal the soul, and encourage a happy life.

    In a deep meditative state, Tsewang Rigzin received the special teaching about soul healing. It was transmitted to him by the dakini, Yum Chen Thuk Je Kundrol. The teaching itself was identified as Tse Du Jha Ri Ma, which is composed of the long life empowerment rituals, soul retrieval, and life force retrieval. The related Long Life rituals help to facilitate healing and bring harmony. Chaphur Rinpoche will discuss this ritual with the aim of enabling the participants to understand how to achieve a long life and to heal the connection between body and soul.

    Once you register, the Zoom link will be sent to your email 15 minutes before the class begins.

    **Please register more than an hour before class begins or we cannot send you a link before the class. So please register early. **

    “There are many Tara teachings in Vajrayana, and this Chime Phagma Nyingtik is one of the most treasured Arya Tara teachings. It is connected to the three most important Vidyadharas of maha-ati or Dzogchen—Vimalamitra, Shri Singha and Guru Padmasambhava. Arya Tara is generally considered to be a deity of protection and white Arya Tara in particular is also associated with longevity.”

    His Holiness Sakya Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche, reputed to be the emanation of Manjushri and Virupa, is one of the most accomplished lineage holders respected by all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. We are profoundly fortunate to receive this major empowerment (wangchen) from His Holiness as this special yidam is one of his main practices.

    A TRI DZOCHEN TEACHING
    His Holiness the 34th Menri Trizin Rinpoche

    July 27-28, 2019.
    San Anselmo, CA 94960.

    For the very first time in California, we will be blessed with a teaching from His Holiness the 34th Menri Trizin Rinpoche. His Holiness has very graciously agreed to give us a teaching on Atri Dzogchen. The visit of His Holiness to the San Francisco Bay Area is part of the first international tour undertaken since his selection as Abbot of Menri Monastery in 2018.

    The Atri, one of the most important spiritual traditions of Yungdrung Bon, guides the practitioner through fifteen step-by-step sessions to stabilize the realization of the awakened awareness of primordial wisdom. Based on teachings by Meu Ritro Chenpo in the eleventh century, and organized into a succinct practice manual by Drugyalwa Yungdrung in the thirteenth century, the Atri tradition has become one of the three principle traditions of Yungdrung Bon Dzogchen.

    The Atri system concisely presents an approach to Dzogchen practice that begins with the most basic practices of disciplining the mind, continues with the direct introduction to the natural state, and then explains practices for sustaining the natural state itself. Through sustaining the natural state, one gains confidence that the three enlightened bodies are nothing other than the essence, nature and clarity of one’s own mind. All this is concisely and systematically explained in Atri.

    Please take this rare opportunity to dive deeply into the Bon spiritual tradition.

    Date: July 17, 2019

    Leader
    Venerable Gyaltan Yarphel (John Jackson) has been a student of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche since 1977. Venerable Yarphel was one of the founding members of Vajrapani Institute, and later fulfilled the responsibility for the establishment of Land of Calm Abiding. He has been ordained as a gelong since 2002 and have been residing at Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s retreat place, Buddha Amitabha Pure Land since 2003.

    Venerable Yarphel met his root teacher, Venerable Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen, in 1976, and was his attendant in the months prior to his passing in 2009 (read Ven. Yarphel’s inspiring account of his teacher, the “tong-len geshe”, and the signs of his spiritual attainments here). Ven. Yarphel began a “lifelong retreat” in 2008, with “interruptions” from time to time to support various projects for Lama Zopa Rinpoche, including helping to build the stupa in Tonasket under direction from Lama Zopa and Yangsi Rinpoche.

    Overall, he says, “I have been able to accumulate about seven years of solitary retreat focusing on the Lam Rim. This past year I was honored to teach the November Course at Kopan and am now back into my solitude.”

    Empowerment of Kunzang Gyalwa Dupa




    H.E. Menri Lopon Rinpoche

    Wednesday October 16th 2-5PM

    H.E. Menri Lopon Trinley Nyima Rinpoche has accepted our request to confer the empowerment of Kunzang Gyalwa Dupa. Kunzang Gyalwa Dupa is one of the principal peaceful deities in Bon’s pantheon, and he was especially dear to the founder of Menri, Nyammé Sherab Gyaltsen. Nevertheless, this empowerment has rarely been conferred in the West, and this is a very special opportunity. A translation of a short sādhana on the practice by the Bon master Azha Lodrö Gyaltsen will be provided.

     цитата:
    From Ewam, which is Tulku Sang.ngag's organization:

    This year’s empowerments, oral transmission and teachings have been opened again to all serious Vajrayana practitioners, including those who were not in attendance in 2018.

    This year, there will be teachings on Longchenpa’s Resting At Ease trilogy (Semnyi Ngalso),
    and a continuation of the Nyingtig Yabzhi oral transmissions (lung)
    .

    In addition, Rinpoche has decided to bestow the complete Empowerments related to the Longchen Nyingtig root texts according to the special arrangement of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
    Also, for those who attended the retreat last year, then Jamgon Kongtrul's Drime Shalung will be given in the future:

    In the future, Rinpoche will bestow the Drime Shelung, for which last year’s empowerments will be required. The Empowerments were concluded last year, but the extensive oral transmissions will continue this year. In order to receive a full transmission of the Nyingtig Yabzhi, all three - empowerments, oral transmissions and instructions - are required.

    The Drimed Shelung are Jamgon Kongtrul’s explanatory instruction on the Nyingtig Yabzhi, which Tulku Sang-ngag received directly from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. They are the culmination of these transmissions, similar to what the Yeshe Lama is to the Longchen Nyingtig cycle. Since these are Dzogchen level instructions, Rinpoche will first lay the foundation by teaching Semnyi Ngalso, with an emphasis on the mind training section.

    The activities will be at the SITE location in Santa Fe. This is an art museum near the center of town. An auditorium will be reserved for the program.

    Это инициация из "Сарвадургатипаришодана" тантра. Посмерные ритуалы этой тантры используются Сакья, Гелуг и неварскими ваджраянистами, как помощь умершим.

    Рекомендована также карма Чагмэ в его "Горная дхарма". Данный цикл в чём-то перекликается с нингмапинскими практиками Шитро, куда входит извeстный текст "Бардо Тёдол".


    Sakya temple Seattle:

    Kunrik (Sarvavid-Vairocana). Empowerment & Teaching

    Bestowed by Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche

    Translator: Rigdzin Tingkhye
    Sunday, September 29, 2019
    Time: 1:30 – 4:00 pm
    Location: Shrine Room
    Suggested donation: Members: $35 Non-Members $50
    Prerequisite: Must be vegetarian the entire day of the empowerment.

    https://www.sakya.org/2019/08/kunrik-empowerment-teaching/


    Kunrik is the main deity in the Elimination of Bad Rebirths (past, present, and future). There will be an introduction, explanation, and empowerment (wang) of the Kunrik (Sarvavid-Vairocana) practice. This empowerment helps to prepare oneself for the time of death. Receiving this empowerment will be of great benefit to one’s past and present selves as well as beings in the bardo, those who are suffering and sick, and all sentient beings. The empowerment helps to clear our body, speech, and mind of obscurations, attachments and desires in this life, after passing, during the bardo, and in the next life. You may bring the names/photos of those who have passed away, as there will be prayers said on behalf of people who have died. The photos will be burned as part of the ritual.

    Khenpo Jampa comes to us from the Dzongsar Institute in North India, where he taught and served as library director for many years. He received his Degree of Acharya after nine years of study and graduated from Dzongsar University. Following his 13 years of study, he was designated a Khenpo in 2004 by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He spent seventeen years studying with his main teacher, H.E. Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk. He has received empowerments from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and from many great masters including H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trichen, H.H. Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang Rinpoche, H.H. Karmapa, and H.E. Dzongsar Khyentse. He now teaches intermediate and advanced level classes on Buddhist philosophy, sutra and highest yoga tantra all over the world. He is also the founder and president of Tibetan Education Foundation, as well as the former president (2014-15) of the International Association of Non-sectarian Tibetan Religious Traditions (IANTRT) of North America. Additionally, he was the President (2017-19) of the North America Sakya Monlam World Peace Foundation. He has been a resident Lama and teacher at Sakya Monastery since 2009.

    Sakya Monastery has a monthly Green Tara Puja on evenings of the full moon. It is open to the Public, but one’s practice becomes more effective after receiving the initiation. Please check sakya.org for the monthly schedule.

    Her Eminence Dagyum Kusho Sakya, also known as H.E. Dagmo Kusho, was born in Kham, Eastern Tibet. As the niece of one of the most highly realized Sakya Masters of the twentieth century, H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche III, her training in Buddhist practice began at an early age. She has received extensive teachings and empowerments from many great lamas of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism throughout her lifetime. Dagyum Kusho is the wife of H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang of the Khön lineage, a Head Lama of the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism. She is currently the Acting Head Lama of the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Seattle, Washingon. Dagyum Kusho specializes in Tara empowerments, practices, and teachings, and has many students throughout the world.

    EVAM Choden

    Ven. Lama Kunga Rinpoche has kindly agreed to bestow the
    empowerment of the Two-Armed Red Hayagriva
    on Sunday, October 27, 2019.

    The empowerment begins at 1:00 pm.
    Please arrive early to register at the door.
    There is a requested donation of $30. (Offering to the Lama is separate.)

    A practice sadhana will be given, but the empowerment can be taken as a blessing.
    There is no prerequisite requirement or pre-registration.
    This empowerment is open to everyone who has taken refuge and follows the Buddhist path.

    The practice of Hayagriva can eliminate all kinds of external and internal obstacles and problems, particularly those caused by demons and spirits.
    The empowerment of Hayagriva was originally received by Machik Trupai Gyalmo directly from Hayagriva. She transmitted it to Tipu Sang Nga Dongpo, who transmitted to Rechungpa. Rechungpa gave it to Milarepa who transmitted it to Gampopa and then the lineage was held by the Drigung Kagyu. Eventually it went through the Tsarpa Tradition, and then to the Sakya. From this, to Gelugpa, and all of the Tibetan Buddhist schools.

    Those wishing to attend must provide their own transportation, as well as accommodations, if necessary.

    The Vajrapani, known as Chagna Dorje in Tibetan, represents the power of the Buddha and the energy of the enlightened mind. He is one of the triad of Bodhisattva protectors (Sk: Trikulanatha, Tibetan: rigsum gonpo) consisting of Manjushri, Chenrezig, and Vajrapani. Vajrapani protects the practitioner from harm and removes the obstacles in their path with the thunderbolt held in his right hand. He is depicted in wrathful form and he is alternatively known as the Lord of Secrets and the Demon Subduer. The Vajrapani practice helps us to focus our life energy towards the goal of attaining enlightenment.

    Heart Essence of Dakinis

    https://gyalshen.org/heart-essence-of-dakinis-2/

    SEPTEMBER 5-6 3PM-6:00PM

    The Bonpo teachings are deep like the ocean, particularly Dzogchen teachings. Many students of Bon are familiar with Dzogchen teachings from male lineage holders and may not be aware of the many female Dzogchen practitioners who have achieved enlightenment. These female enlightened beings are known as Dakini or Khandro. The Dakinis are real-life, female practitioners who have achieved realization of the Mature of Mind through Dzogchen practice here on earth. Dakini or Khandro lineage teachings are rarely taught in the west.

    Therefore, Chaphur Rinpoche will offer instruction on the Heart Essence of the Thirty Signs and Meanings of the Female Lineage, The Mogyud ( Female lineage), from the Cycle of Essential Instructions of the Male and Female Lineages from the Bonpo Dzogchen teachings.

    During this teaching, Rinpoche will give specific instructions on how the Dakinis or Khandros practiced and achieved realization of the nature of mind. Rinpoche will teach individual Dzogchen view, meditation, conduction and result (fruit). In addition, Rinpoche will also give instructions on the heart essence of the Khandro Dzogchen lineage practices and realization songs, originating all the way back to Gyalwa Kuntu Zangpo.

    This retreat is open to students that have any level of familiarity with the Bön teachings. All are warmly invited to attend and to savor the experience of Tsa Lung and Tummo practice with the support of sangha. Please click HERE to register for in person and for Zoom. Lunch will be provided.

     цитата:
    Susan Pottish is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Daniel P. Brown.

    Only recently did Dan send out an email letting us all know that he has Parkinson’s disease. Even though his symptoms were showing in his gait and posture and facial expression for a few years, it took all that time to know for sure because there is no definitive test for it. And it turns out that he also has Lyme disease and extremely high levels of heavy metals in his blood. Then, in addition to all that, there are the side effects now manifesting daily from the medication Dan takes for the Parkinson’s, including almost constant pain that he characterized as feeling like muscles are being “stripped from the bones.”

    He wrote, “Now at the age of 71, I can't call myself the 'energizer bunny' anymore.” That’s a rather small, if humorous, image for depicting the truly extraordinary level of energy and dedication he has demonstrated for the cause of others for decades. Personally, I think the image of an 18-wheeler roaring across highways is a bit more apt. If you’d like to get a more complete view of Dan’s work over a lifetime, please click the link at the end of this page.
