The famous text of the Twenty One Little Nails belongs to the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu. These renowned precepts, transmitted in an unbroken lineage up to the present time, are arranged in four cycles of canonical texts. The Twenty One Little Nails belongs to the last cycle, the innermost secret part of the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu. It consists of a series of pith instructions (referred to as “nails” or “seals”) on the natural state of the mind and on how to stabilize awakening.
As you know, during the lockdown due to the pandemic, Khenpo Gelek generously offered daily teachings and practice sessions online. Around 200 people (sometimes even 300) gathered every day on ZOOM, to listen to his advice and explanations of the path of Yungdrung Bon, rooted in Khenpo la´s every-day experience and many years of practice. Then, we meditated together, under his guidance. 90 of such sessions took place from April to July.
Now, following the wishes of many sangha members who feel that the regular teachings and practice under Khenpo Gelek´s guidance bring benefit to them, Khenpo la decided to continue.
Daily practice and teachings will start again on Saturday, September 5th. It will be held at 6-7 PM Paris time, 5 times a week, from Wednesdays to Sundays (except for the days when some other online teachings organized by Shenten Dargye Ling would take place).
The plan is to keep the teachings for 3 months, from September to November. For each month, we will create a specific webinar on ZOOM. You will have to register separately for each of them.
Until now, the daily sessions were free of charge, but for the upcoming online daily practices and teachings we would like to reintroduce the usual custom and invite you to repay the teachings with your offerings. Offerings are an important aspect in the process of transmitting - receiving teachings, traditionally, and of course, they are also vital for maintaining our common place, Shenten Dargye Ling.
