Palyul Pensacola - Khenchen Tsewang - 23 August - 29 August

Post by kirtu » Tue Aug 22, 2017 7:28 pm

Khenchen Tsewang will visit Palyul Pensacola in Gulf Breeze, Florida, from 23-29 August, 2017.
Here’s a tentative schedule for Khenchen’s visit. The Ottawa Palyul center recommended the Heart Sutra teachings Khenchen which gave there, and Khenchen suggested the Vajrasattva empowerment in order to support people new to ngondro practice. “Advice for Beginners” seemed a good choice based on Mipham’s excellent record as a source of teachings during Khenchen’s previous visits. Don’t be swayed by the title—Mipham’s idea of a beginner is not the same as ours.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
