Over two weekends in July (13-14 and 27-28) Lama Tsering will offer teachings on Ngöndro - a set of practices that is considered the foundation of the Vajrayana path.

On the first weekend (July 13-14), Lama Tsering will use the red books - the yearbooks in which she wrote down her translations of Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche's teachings - as support for the teachings.. The second teaching weekend will begin with Guru Rinpoche empowerment in the morning, followed by instructions on the Dudjom Tersar Ngondro.

It is said that learning the Ngöndro is similar to learning the alphabet, as despite being referred to as "preliminary" practices, they are never abandoned by the practitioner, and are applied throughout the spiritual path, until enlightenment.

If diligently applied, this method purifies obscurantions and negative karma, creating conditions for the practitioner to receive higher teachings - such as those of the Great Perfection. For this reason, this retreat is recommended to all those who wish to commit and dedicate themselves intensely to the spiritual path.


There are four ways to register for the event:

  • Full event: with the two weekends of teachings included.
  • Partial event: only for one weekend
  • Registration per day of teaching
  • Registration for empowerment only

 

“The Dudjom Tersar Ngondro provides a superb means to open the door to recognizing the
nature of mind. I hope that all who undertake it will transcend the rigors
of the practices and find true joy in them.”

Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
