MEDITATION TEACHINGS

Meditations with Khedrupchen Rinpoche

April 16-18, 2021
Friday - Sunday
6-9pm PST each evening

It is our honor to welcome you to a precious opportunity to participate in a meditation workshop offered by His Eminence Khedrupchen Rinpoche Ugyen Tenzin Thinley Lhendup (also referred to as Khedrup(chen) Rinpoche).

This extremely special program offers an initial taste of Ngöndro. Ngöndro offers the preliminary practices for Awakening. It is often said that if we learn Awakening without these practices, it is like building a house without a foundation. So join us to ground your Awakening in these essential teachings!

The program will be taught remotely by Zoom from H.E. Khedrupchen Rinpoche's monastery in Bhutan.

100% of proceeds will be donated to Khedrup Rinpoche’s monastery and charitable organizations. Rinpoche was on a prayer pilgrimage through Bhutan for most of 2020 visiting holy sites and sending prayers to the world during this time of COVID.

About Ngöndro:

While this workshop will only offer a taste, the full practice of Ngöndro is considered the entrance to the great perfection, or the pristine mind, and provides a direct connection to the sacred Dharma. Through the practice of Ngöndro, negativities are purified, and positive merit is accumulated. This serves to cleanse the mindstream and affords students a base from which to deepen into direct realizations of precious teachings.

Ngöndro is an essential practice of preliminary, preparatory, or foundational practices or disciplines common to all schools of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the indigenous Yungdrung Bön tradition. All Ngöndro practices have as their goal the enlightenment of the practitioner so that he/she may be of the greatest benefit to all sentient beings, i.e. the cultivation of "bodhichitta".  They are a complete path to enlightenment in and of themselves. The renowned Lama Patrul Rinpoche (1808–1887) is said to have practiced the Longchen Nyingthig Ngöndro repeatedly throughout his life.

Although the practice of Ngöndro is now fully described in books available to the general public, it is essential to receive personal instruction and transmission from a teacher who has the required lineage and training.
