Teaching and Practice week-long retreat to open the 2019 Dzogchen Cycles teaching year.
Wisdom is the essence of the Dakini. Every line of this practice opens to a facet of her presence. This practice is rich, simple, and resonant with the power of its revealer.
Ad.zom Rinpoche, one of the most renowned Dzogchen masters in Tibet today, received a direct vision of Yeshe Tsogyal while visiting her sacred soul-lake north of Yaru Drak. This unique practice is the fruition of that encounter, first privately revealed at Tārā Mandala in 2007 and thereafter held very closely until this year. It is what the ancient (Nyingma) traditions consider a treasure (Ter), revealed by someone who was entrusted by Guru Rinpoche in the 8th century to bring it forth at the right time. It now forms part of Rinpoche’s own Ter Cycle, the Clear Light Heart Essence (‘Od gsal snying thig) and, with his blessings, is the focus of our Dzogchen Cycles’ wisdom teachings this year.
Ad.zom Rinpoche has recently asked Lama Rigzin Drolma (Anne C. Klein) to teach and develop commentary on this profound practice. She says, “I am honored and delighted to share this practice with everyone who takes a sincere interest in it and who will make a sustained connection with its essence.”
Fall September 13-15 Jigme Lingpa’s Severance Practice-Going Deeper
Severance is a dynamic ritual and meditation practice that transforms the Buddhist Perfection of Wisdom teachings into embodied poetry and vision.
Ad.zom Rinpoche’s vision of this brings blessings and depth into the deep awareness of one’s truest nature. It plants a seed for his own Severance which he has asked us to teach in the near future.
