What is Drakpa Korsum?
It's one of the 4 canonic Dzogchen cycles in Yungdrung Bön.
These 4 and their respective commentaries / instruction manuals are:

Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü & Gyalwa Chaktri
Drakpa Korsum & Yangtse Longchen
Gabpa Gukor & A Tri
Yetri Tasel & Namkha Trüldzö

"Drakpa Korsum" means "The Triple Proclamation", referring to its transmission in 3 realms:
That of the Devas, Nagas & Humans.

AUGUST 4, 2018 - RANG SEM TRANSMISSION - Dzogchen exordium on the Direct Understanding of Mind

It has always been the intention of 9 Ways to bring practical, all reaching, and important Transmissions for public consumption. Dharma in the West presents many challenges, misunderstandings, and quite the opposite motivation of our Eastern brothers and sisters. Eastern philosophical thought requires a gradual methodology, combined with discernment, practice, and easily grasped concepts, in logical order.

Rang Sem is the conjunction of 3 views regarding the Mind, from the Dzogchen;

Khenpo Dargye will present 3 Points:

- Lo Sem Tse Chik,
- Milam,
- Bagchak.

This could be interpreted as the Heart Mind connection, Dreams, and deeply rooted 'loose change', which can create unusual circumstances even for the practiced learner. This Transmission offers helpful information, and the identification of personal affairs.

We want to point out that 'Bagchak' is rarely discussed in the West, much less presented at all.

Lo Sem Tse Chick has supporting texts including a rare Dzogchen manuscript entitled 'the Illuminated Mind.'

Rang Sem is also 'new', as far as we know, these 'points' have never come together in such a direct way. Free of being overwhelmed by ceremony, like so many Eastern presentations, Rang Sem is the direct approach, through key texts, to what is really going on. This is a departure from the way things are done under normal circumstances, but things are not normal anymore.

Bon A Khrid Dzogchen Transmission
and Practice Part I

Saturday, July 28 from 9am – 5pm
Sunday, July 29 from 10am – 1pm

Join us for this special retreat to receive the first part of the transmission and instruction of the Heart Essence of the A Khrid Dzogchen teachings from Tempa Lama. This retreat is a special opportunity to attain a deeper experience of meditation and directly recognize the mind’s innate purity. The retreat will combine teachings and dialogue with time spent in contemplation to deepen our experience.

The Bön Dzogchen teachings are the highest teachings of Bön as they offer a means to directly recognize the true nature of the mind and further attain stabilization of this recognition.

The Bön A Khrid teachings consist of three retreats. This year Tempa Lama will focus on teaching the Nyoshi, the actual practice of the A Khrid Dzogchen through his vivid fresh understanding and experience.

During the following two retreats, Tempa Lama will offer instructions on how to distinguish between the ordinary mind and the true nature of the mind and how we can stabilize this recognition through the practice of klong sgom, the spontaneous presence in the natural state.

Bön has 4 distinct Dzogchen lineages:

the lineage of A Khrid,
the lineage of Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud,
the lineage of Dzogchen.
the lineage of Yetri Thasel

The present A Khrid lineage is also called the experiential Dzogchen transmission. It has been transmitted without interruption from master to student over many centuries, dating back from His Holiness 33rd Menri Trizin (who gave this teaching to Tempa Lama) to the Great Master rMe’u dGongs-mdzod (1038-1096), and before him to Tönpa Shenrab, the founding teacher of Bön.

Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained Tibetan Bön lama. He is the founder and spiritual director of Olmo Ling Bön Center and Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, and co-founder of Humla Fund.
Tempa Lama is an artist and poet and author of four books, Heart Drop of the Loving Mother (2014), Journey into Buddhahood (2013), Inexhaustible Miracles (2011) and The Intimate Mind (2011). Tempa Lama has studied the Bon wisdom teachings, practices, and rituals in Menri Monastery, India, from the age of six under the close guidance of H.H. 33rd Menri Trizin, the spiritual head of the Bon tradition. Tempa Lama is dedicated to making the ancient teachings of Bön available and accessible in the West, helping people bring a practice of compassion, healing and happiness into their lives.
