His Holiness to Teach, Offer Dzogchen Initiation During Summer Retreat

hh lungtok tempai nyima lgWe are pleased to share that His Holiness Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, the 33rd Menri Trizin, will join Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche during part of the Summer Retreat, which is scheduled for June 23–July 13, 2013. His Holiness also will give a special dzogchen initiation on July 7.

His Holiness, the spiritual head of the Tibetan Bon Buddhist lineage and abbot of Menri Monastery in Dolanji, India, will offer teachings during the last few days of Week 2 of the retreat and the first few days of Week 3. He will participate in the first part of a free full-day webcast on July 6, broadcast live from the summer retreat. (This will be on the last day of Week 2). His Holiness also will be giving a special dzogchen initiation on July 7, the first day of Week 3.

Participants are encouraged to accumulate long life mantras in honor of his visit.

During the three-week Summer Retreat, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will focus his teachings on one of the most esteemed dzogchen texts within the Oral Transmission of Zhang Zhung, the Twenty-One Nails. It is among the innermost secret cycles of dzogchen, directly cutting through doubts about one’s natural state of mind by tracing the nature of mind back to its source.

Over the three weeks of the summer retreat, Part 1 of the Twenty-One Nails will be taught, including the first through tenth nail. Tenzin Rinpoche will teach Part 2 of the Twenty-One Nails at Serenity Ridge the following summer, 2014.

Please join us for one, two or all three weeks.
Week 1: June 23–29; Week 2: June 30–July 6; Week 3: July 7–13
