The Indian mahasiddha Saraha is widely known as the first human teacher of Mahamudra. The Mahamudra teachings point out the direct nature of the mind that is the basis of the entire universe and beings within it. The 19 Pith instructions of Saraha come from the inner Profound Dharma collection of Jigten Sumgon, the founder of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage. Khenpo Tenzin will explain the essential teachings of the mahamudra instruction as taught by Saraha and lead a short meditation session and Q&A period each day.

I guess they decided not to webcast it, oh well; sorry for the misinformation.

Did Rinpoche give a lung for the text? I connected to the original link, found nothing and left. :(

I don't know, I was late too. I emailed them and asked and asked if he would do it again if he has.

First he started off setting the motivation, then he gave a brief history of the life of Saraha.
Next he began by reading in Tibetan "lung" each pith instruction; one by one, followed by his translation into English and his oral commentary.
At the break Khenpo was up to the fifth (5th) pith instructions.

Their email said that Khenpo said lung wasn't needed for this teaching.

Awesome!
Although I'm curious if we still are receiving the lung because he is reading the source text :thinking: .
Anyway it doesn't really matter because i'm not trying to accumulate 'lung' transmission, just wanting to hear dharma teachings. ;)
