Takla Mebar Retreat

Post by kalden yungdrung » Mon Dec 02, 2019 2:51 pm

Tashi delek,

In addition to the earlier discussed topic regarding Bön Takla Mebar, here a Takla Mebar retreat organised by Gyaltsen Institute by Geshala Chapur Rinpoche, in which family this Yidam is practised for a very long time.

The flaming tiger here is an emanation Buddha Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche and can never be subdued, like earlier suggested here by some members.

Takla Mebar One Month Winter Retreat
Saturday Dec 7th, 14th, and 21st
9-10am on Zoom

December 27- 31 2019
10 am-4:30 pm

Chaphur Rinpoche will be in personal retreat for the month of December. During that time, his practice will be focused on his personal Yidam, Takla Mebar. Rinpoche has been deepening his connection with his family lineage Yidam each December for many years. This year all sangha members are warmly invited to join Rinpoche in doing these powerful, healing practices from home or a chosen personal retreat location.

Every Saturday Rinpoche will give teachings via Zoom on the generation and completion stages of the Takla Mebar practice, and their relation to tantric practice in the larger Bön Buddhist context. Students will be encouraged to practice their own retreat on the deity, accumulating mantras, and engaging in other Takla Mebar practices. At the conclusion of Rinpoche’s personal retreat, he will lead a five day teaching and practice retreat at Gyalshen Institute. There he will also give the tantric empowerment for Takla Mebar.

Please note: you may still participate in the online sessions and practice from home through Zoom, if you are unable to attend the concluding 5-day retreat

Here is a short description of Takla Mebar:

In order to overcome negative forces and the personal, negative emotions and obstacles they create, Tonpa Shenrab Miwo manifested as Takla Mebar (Flaming Tiger Deity) and subjugated those evil forces through his compassionate wisdom mind, transforming them into compassionate and peaceful beings.

Takla Mebar heals the outer poisons by transforming them into wisdom and positive aspects. The inner negativities are transformed into the clarity of the 5 Wisdoms: the wisdom of emptiness, mirror-like wisdom, wisdom of equality, discriminating wisdom, all-accomplishing wisdom.

The Chaphur family have been lineage holders of this yidam since the very beginning of their recorded family history.
