Karmic Ripening - The Law of Causality

With H.E. 7th Kundol Rinpoche
Saturday, June 8, 9:30am-5pm and Sunday June 9, 10am-1pm
Olmo Ling Bon Center and Institute, 1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217

Kundrol Rinpoche is the seventh reincarnation of the great Kundrol Jatson Nyingpo of Tibet. He is a renowned healer and psychic. Rinpoche’s warmth and compassion, his sense of humor and the unique qualities of his teachings have touched the lives of many beings. Rinpoche is a nonsectarian and has received teachings and empowerments with highly venerated Bon and Buddhist masters such as H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, H.H. Menling Tri Rinpoche, H.E. Dodrup Rinpoche and many others.

We are fortunate that Rinpoche will visit Olmo Ling again this summer to share his deep knowledge of the Bon teachings. Rinpoche will explore the law of cause and effect (or “karma”) according to the Tibetan Bon tradition. “Karma” means action. The law of cause and effect describes the relationship between our past actions and the conditions of our present life. Rinpoche will explain how most of our actions as unawakened beings remain as karmic traces in our consciousness. He will explain the effect of these karmic traces or seeds and how they can manifest in our lives.

Gaining a deep understanding of the law of cause and effect can empower us to grow and evolve on the path of compassionate beings. This understanding enables us to realize how we can manifest our awakened potential by renouncing unwholesome actions and consciously cultivating wholesome actions for the benefit of all beings. Contemplating cause and effect is one of the four thoughts that turn the mind toward its essence: the contemplations of impermanence, the preciousness of human life, the suffering of cyclic existence, and the manifestation of cause and effect in our lives.

Proceeds from this Retreat will help support Rinpoche’s monastery Za Mongyal in India. At Za Mongyal Rinpoche is offering monastic training and education and shelter to needy young boys, many of whom are refugees or from poor families in the Tibetan borderlands.
