The Wheel of Analytical Meditation by Mipham Rinpoche
October 11-17 with Tulku Rigsang
Because we are under the power of ignorance that fixates on all phenomena as being truly existent, we wander in cyclic existence experiencing suffering without bounds. The true nature of all phenomena has timelessly lacked any true existence, its essence being that of emptiness. Until one cultivates the wisdom that realizes the selfless nature of phenomena, the ultimate goal will not be attained. The way to realize the nature of all things to be emptiness is by relying on treatises of the middle way (Madhyamaka).
The concise text called The Wheel of Analytical Meditation includes all the key points of the middle way. Here one comes to a definitive understanding regarding the emptiness of all substantial existence, and receives explanation on how to meditate using both shamatha (calm abiding) and vipashyana (special insight). This treatise is especially remarkable since all the crucial points of practice are contained within it. ***Full participation is requested for this teaching given by Tulku Rigsang.
Shower of Blessings: A practice and tsog accumulation of Guru Rinpoche by Mipham Rinpoche
October 18-20 with Lingtrul Rinpoche
Khentrul Rinpoche requested Katog Lingtrul Rinpoche to join us for three days of intensive practice and several hundred thousand accumulations of tsog offerings based on Mipham Rinpoche’s guru yoga practice text, The Shower of Blessings. This is a very simple, yet profound practice of guru yoga and a powerful method for clearing obstacles and gathering accumulations of merit. While we hope that as many people as possible will participate for the full three days, as this is a rare opportunity to practice with such a wonderful teacher as Lingtrul Rinpoche, attendance is open to anyone on any day.
