“Chatral Rinpoche never praised anyone, but after reading A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar, he said, ‘If you want to write, you have to write like this. If you have this one text, you don’t need another’.” – Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche’s Ngondro commentary A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar” contains wisdom teachings on the entire Buddhist path.

” A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar… contains the essence of all Buddha’s teachings including sutra, tantra and Dzogchen Great Perfection.

His (Dungse Rinpoche’s) writing is not coming from intellectual mind, but from his realization of luminous clear light non-duality wisdom mind.” Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to connect with A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar, through the teachings of Acharya Sam Bercholz*, who was empowered by Dungse Rinpoche to teach this profound text.

Following these weekend teachings, there will be a seven day Dudjom Tersar Ngondro retreat with teachings from Lama Sonam Rinpoche*, as well as accumulation sessions and opportunity for personal instruction.

Don’t miss the opportunity to start or further progress your Ngondro practice.

“If there are any wise persons who desire to be completely freed,
From the hot torments of the fire pit of samsara, they should
Rely on this supreme path, Ngondro, which, like the king of trees,
Will revive one in its cool, dense shade, enlightenment.”
– H. H. Dudjom Rinpoche

* Lama Sonam Rinpoche, a Nyingmapa master of Tibetan Buddhism, completed his Buddhist education under the guidance of
H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche. He received the complete teachings and empowerments of the Dudjom Tersar and other Nyingma traditions from many realized lamas and khenpos.
In 1999, Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche and Lama Tharchin Rinpoche entrusted him to help guide the Vajrayana Foundation, Pema Osel Ling.* Lama Tharchin Rinpoche spoke of Sam Bercholz in 2013:
“I have known Sam Bercholz for many years and he is a very noble person. In addition to being empowered by
Dungse Rinpoche to teach (A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar), Rinpoche made Sam his honored dorje loppon (ritual master) and often referred to him as Acharya (spiritual guide)…

Sam can make a direct connection between you and this treasure, “A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar.”
