Heartdrops of Dharmakaya I with Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche

Olmo Ling Bon Center, 1101 Greenfield Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA

Fri. Jan 24, 7-8:45pm, Sat. Jan 25, 9:30am-5pm, Sun. Jan 26, 10am-1pm

Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will offer the first part of a special teaching on The Heartdrops of Dharmakaya. This first part initiates one into the Dzogchen practice as taught by Shardza Rinpoche and translated by Lopon Tenzin Namdak. The Heartdrops of Dharmakaya is a personal instruction on Bon Dzogchen practice given by Bon master Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen to his students. The Bon Dzogchen teachings are the highest teachings of Bon as they offer instructions on how to recognize the true nature of the mind and stabilize this recognition. Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche cuts to the heart of Dzogchen meditation. He will focus on Khor Dhe Ru Shen and Sem Zin. Khor Dhe Ru Shen means to introduce the sources of both cyclic existent and liberation and train the body, speech, and mind for deeper understanding and preparation for further parts of this text. Sem Zin means to stabilize the mind in order to realize the mind of Dzogchen nature.

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche is the author of “Opening the Door to Bon” and the abbot and lineage holder of the La Tri Monastery in Kham/Dege, Eastern Tibet. Rinpoche studied at Menri Monastery and received his Geshe degree in 1987. He is the founder and Director of the Bön Children’s Home in Dolanji, where he is in charge of providing for the physical and educational needs of Bon orphan children. He is the founder of the Yeru Bon Center in Los Angeles; the Shen Ten Ling Bon Centre in Vienna; the Shen Chen Ling in Minsk (Belarus); and the Bon Shen Ling in Moscow, and travels regularly to these centers to give teachings.
