Summer Dzogchen Retreat Webcast from Glorious Padma Samye Ling with Nyingma Scholar & Meditation Master Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche! JULY 17 - 24, 2021

Summer Dzogchen Retreat July 17-24th, 2021 (Sat-Sat). 

The Essential Point of the Effortless Profound Meditation

by Mipham Rinpoche

” One’s own nature of mind is fresh awareness-emptiness that never changed from the beginning and is free from accepting, rejecting, and effort. Abide directly in this nature with confidence. This is the great Dzogchen, the ultimate nature of all phenomena.”

As the cornerstone of our annual summer retreat, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche will confer special Dzogchen teachings by Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche on the importance of relying on lineage masters to fully discover and realize the Dzogchen view of self-liberated

awareness. Once you’re introduced to your true nature through the blessings of the lineage and your root teacher, in combination with your buddha-nature and its radiant qualities, those with opportunity and great fortune to put these pith instructions into practice will break through the delusions of samsara and nirvana.
During the 2021 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 direct pointing out instructions on how to discover enlightened awareness this very moment.

Mipham’s root text will be available to participants as a free download.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to access this retreat.
