Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche - online seminar on the "Union of Dzogchen & Mahamudra"

Post by PSM » Fri Aug 03, 2018 6:35 pm

Just got this email about a great online seminar with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, looks like a fantastic opportunity!:

Dear Sangha!

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has begun his Summer 2018 Teaching Tour. For those unable to attend, Rinpoche kindly agreed to make the teachings offered at Gomde Germany-Austria available online in their entirety for students all around the world.

Rinpoche will base his teachings on The Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen, a renowned poetic composition by the 17th century meditation master, Karma Chagmé. The text comprises 8 spiritual songs explicitly highlighting the timeless practice instructions of both Mahamudra ─ the Great Seal ─ and Dzogchen ─ the Great Perfection.

Online Seminar:
There will be English and German translation available. For more information please visit
DharmaSun.org/seminars/

Live-streaming:
To link the greatest number of people possible with the precious Dharma, the first three days of the seminar will be Rinpoche’s personal gift to you! They will be live streamed via Facebook and simultaneously on DharmaSun.org, both without any registration required! (Live streaming will start on 4th August, around 9:30 a.m. CET)

This seminar offers a unique opportunity for students of all levels ─ from beginners to advanced practitioners ─ to receive a series of truly profound teachings. We would therefore ask that you share this notice with all those who might be interested to join us either online or in person.

Thanks for sharing! :twothumbsup:
Thus, there is not a single one who has entered into this teaching who fails to attain buddhahood.

Bumping the thread as it looks like this will be going live pretty soon.

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche is one of the greatest living masters, so that's a great idea. *Incredibly* kind and very good at teaching all different types of dharma.

I read the root text some time ago, and it is a very interesting book, planning to read the commentary too sometime soon. There are also clarifications on things that have been discussed on this forum recently. For example, about whether it is good to receive teachings from many different masters or only one there is this verse (though I suppose it is a bit open to interpretation):

It is necessary to focus your mind on one single and sufficient master,
If you are to be his chief disciple.
But if you wish to have the virtues of experience and realization dawn within you,
It is more profound to combine all the teachers you have met into one,
And to visualize him as the Buddha resting on your crown and to supplicate him.

I had the good fortune to finally make a personal connection with Rinpoche during a teaching last summer. We spoke for a few minutes and for me it was a pretty powerful experience. I feel so fortunate to have the merit to meet with authentic teachers such as this.

Keep making those aspirations!
