Bon A Khrid Dzogchen Transmission and Practice with Tempa Lama Part III - 2020

With Tempa Dukte Lama via Zoom

Saturday November 21, 9:30am-12:30pm ET, Sunday November 22, 10am-12:30pm ET, Saturday December 5, 9:30am-12:30pm ET and Sunday December 6, 10am-12:30pm ET via Zoom

Prerequisite: Attendance of the A Khrid Part I and II Teachings and Transmission

Tempa Lama will continue offering the transmission and instruction of the Heart Essence of the A Khrid Dzogchen teachings. For this third and final Retreat in the A Khrid Cycle, Tempa Lama will first give teachings on how to distinguish between the ordinary mind and the true nature of the mind. Second he will offer an introduction to the nature of the mind. Third he will offer instructions on how we can stabilize this recognition through the practice of klong sgom, the spontaneous presence in the natural state.

The Bon Dzogchen teachings are the highest teachings of Bon as they offer a means to directly recognize the true nature of the mind and further attain stabilization of this recognition. Bon has three distinct Dzogchen lineages: the lineage of A Khrid, the lineage of Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud, and the lineage of Dzogchen. The present A Khrid lineage is also called the experiential Dzogchen transmission. It has been transmitted without interruption from master to student over many centuries, dating back from His Holiness 33rd Menri Trizin (who gave this teaching to Tempa Lama) to the Great Master rMe’u dGongs-mdzod (1038-1096), and before him to Tonpa Shenrab, the founding teacher of Bon.


Fees: $63 (Olmo Ling member), $70 (non-member). Couple-rate for couples of all genders: $95 (Olmo Ling member), $105 (non-member).
