Pith Instructions for Dzogchen Meditation: The Importance of Stabilizing Rigpa for Practitioners

July 24, 2020 @ 7:00 am - August 1, 2020 @ 7:15 pm

Pith Instructions for Dzogchen Meditation:
The Importance of Stabilizing Rigpa for Practitioners

July 24 – August 1, 2020

During the 2020 Summer Dzogchen Retreat webcast live from Padma Samye Ling, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche will impart the heart essence of Dzogchen Pith Instructions according to the stainless wisdom lineage of the great master Mipham Rinpoche. These are directly pointing out instructions on how important it is to recognize the nature of rigpa, strengthen it, and then bring it to stability. Through this practice, we will transform samsara and nirvana into the pure land of the dharmakaya.
* Mipham’s root text will be available to participants as a free download.

Mipham Rinpoche (1846-1912) was a great Nyingma master and writer of the last century. Blessed by Manjushri, he became one of the greatest scholars of his time and was a devoted student of Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo Rinpoche, and Patrul Rinpoche. Mipham Rinpoche had an enormous impact in re-awakening a deep reverence and interest in the Nyingma and Dzogchen teachings. Three hundred and twenty-two of his Dharma works have survived. Apart from these, he composed more than thirty-five books on a range of subjects including medicine; poetry (particularly the Gesar epics); logic; cosmology; astrology and divination; alchemy; painting and sculpture; engineering; and both extensive and pithy commentaries on the Sutras and Tantras of Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava.

Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche brings these teachings to vivid life with practical, pithy advice that goes straight to the heart and inspires us all to use this precious opportunity for the great and lasting benefit of all beings.
