We are very grateful that Menri Shedrup Khenpo Geshe Nyima Dhondup Rinpoche, Abbot of the Bon Dialectic School, has generously offered to give this special Dzogchen teaching in support of the Olmo Ling Temple Capital Campaign – our ongoing efforts to raise the funds for buying a building and establishing a permanent temple and sacred Bon refuge in Pittsburgh under the guidance of Tempa Dukte Lama.

To attain lasting happiness, the practitioner must rest body, speech, and mind in great equanimity. All actions of the body obscure the great non-action. Therefore, the practitioner must rest the body by keeping it in a state of equanimity. All actions of speech obscure the ineffable essence. Therefore, the practitioner must rest the speech by keeping it in a state of equanimity. All thought processes of the mind obscure the essence of the inconceivable. Therefore, the practitioner must rest the mind by keeping it in a state of equanimity. If one practices in this way, one will attain genuine peace and lasting happiness.


Participants will be emailed the Zoom link on the day before the teaching (Friday).
