We are organizing a special teaching and empowerment program kindly bestowed by Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpocheon 22nd & 23rd of April 2017. Please see details as below.
Teaching Programs Program 1: Teaching on Nangwa Lhadrub (Establishing Appearances as Divine): “Nangwa Lhadrub (Establishing Appearances as Divine)” is a profound text authored by Rongzom Mahapandita Dharmabhadra. It presents the logical grounds for the pure view of Tantrayana. In this text, Rongzom Mahapandita Dharmabhadra (Rongzom Chokyi Zangpo) establishes all appearances as divine based on the nature of purity. In other words, this text affirms the nature of purity with the four kinds of reasoning. The four kinds of reasoning are: the reasoning of intrinsic nature, the reasoning of function, the reasoning of dependency and the reasoning of establishing a proof.
Rinpoche will continue the teaching on this text from the previous session held in April, 2016
Program 2: Overview of Buddhism
Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche will bestow teaching on “Overview of Buddhism.” This teaching will highlight the most important aspects of Buddhism based on its principles. Khenchen Rinpoche’s teaching will be very crucial for both old and newcomer to understand Buddhist philosophy perfectly.
Empowerment Program: Empowerment of “1000 Armed Avalokiteshwara”
Arya Avalokiteshvara is a fully enlightened Buddha and the embodiment of the great compassion of all the Buddhas. In the sutra teachings of Lord Buddha, he is portrayed as a Bodhisattva who vowed not to achieve enlightenment until all sentient beings get liberated from the sufferings of samsara. In the secret mantra teachings, he manifests as the deity of compassion. There are innumerable sadhana practices upon Avalokiteshvara as a yidam/deity which is considered to be an integral part of the three roots practice in Vajrayana. 1000 armed Arya Avalokiteshvara represents the compassion in action and speech of all the Buddhas. This empowerment is specially significant to embark upon a practice to generate one’s own great compassion towards all sentient beings.
1000 Armed Avalokiteshvara Empowerment is highly recommended for all who have an interest in Vajrayana Buddhism and are willing to accept blessings from a master. Practice commitments related to empowerment are generally informed by the teacher after the empowerment ceremony. You are encouraged to contact us over phone or email for further clarifications.
