Lung & Teaching from Longchenpa


“The Trilogy of Rest is the heart of all the sutra and tantra teachings of Lord Buddha. It is the very essence of the wisdom mind of Gyalwa Longchenpa, the holder of the treasury of the nine vehicles. I hope and pray that these translated texts will be a source of goodness in the world, encouraging beings to turn within and to discover at length the uncontrived nature of their minds—finding rest and relief from all their many pains and sorrows.”
~ Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa

On September 16-18, Tulku Thadral Rinpoche will give the oral reading transmission (lung) from “The Great Chariot”, Gyalwa Longchenpa’s auto-commentary to “Finding Rest in the Nature of Mind” (Sem Nyi Ngal So), which includes the root text, and is found in the second part of Volume One of “The Trilogy of Rest” and will be teaching from “The Excellent Path to Enlightenment”, which is Longchenpa’s practice manual based on “Finding Rest in the Nature of Mind”.

By streaming and in person at Pema Osel Ling following COVID requirements. Registration, information, and offerings: https://www.vajrayana.org/events/230/

 

Auspicious Connections

 

When the sun
Arrives at the center of the blue mid-heaven,

The auspicious connections occur
For the earth’s grove of lotus flowers to bloom.

When drops of honey rain
Arrive from the cluster of the sky’s white clouds,

The auspicious connections occur
For the valley’s flowers and fruits to ripen soon.

When awareness-holding practitioners
Arrive in regions of their directionless wandering,

The auspicious connections occur
For fortunate disciples’ benefit and happiness to appear.

Lama’s Blessings

To nurture stillness, to nurture spiritual experiences, to nurture samadhi and other spiritual states ~ these are common.

But by the strength of your devotion for realization to arise from within due to the Lama’s blessings ~ this is rare.
