Shenten Dargye Ling
Due to the recent circumstances, there will be no retreats physically taking place in Shenten Dargye Ling this summer : Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche won’t travel to Europe for now and with the sanitary protocols, it wouldn’t be easy to accommodate safely many people on site.
So all events which should have taken place in June, July and August are cancelled.
Still, we are very happy to announce that there will be teachings, via the Zoom platform, as many of you have already used it since April.
Though far away, we will be able to connect together with our masters and receive teachings without interruption.
Instead of the usual three weeks format for the summer retreat, there will be a two weeks retreat, with one week break. It is possible to attend only part of the event, according to your own circumstances.
This online retreat will be followed by the one week meditation retreat, on ZOOM.
We are planning to provide translation into various languages, as it was done for the previous online retreats.
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.
This retreat will be based on the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü.
During this retreat, pith instructions of realized Dzogchen masters will be taught and taken as an object of meditation. The teaching of the retreat is based, as the previous year, on the Nyamgyü Dringpo or Medium version of Experiential Transmission of Zhang-Zhung Nyen Gyü, the most precious cycle of Dzogchen teaching in the spiritual tradition of Yungdrung Bön. This year, Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche will continue from the same text. The retreat offers a good opportunity to deepen understanding and practice of Dzogchen and is open to newcomers too.
ATTENTION : Due to some technical problems, we changed the ID of the meeting. If you want to continue following the teachings, please register again.
September 4th - November 11th, with Khenpo Gelek Jinpa
