Samye Institute is delighted to announce a new bi-monthly teaching series offering to the global sangha. In this series, Drupla Sonam Tsering will provide instructions and commentary on The Four Foundations or Ngöndro practices of the Tukdrup Barché Künsel.
Drupla will be teaching on the Seed of Supreme Awakening, the extensive Ngöndro of the Lamé Tukdrup Barché Künsel from Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo. He will begin with an introduction to these foundational practices and will explain why they are fundamental to Vajrayana practice. Drupla will then guide us through the common preliminary practice, emphasizing the internalization of those contemplations. He will also discuss each of the 5 extraordinary foundations, dedicating one session to each practice.
These teachings will be in Tibetan and translated into English, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese and Indonesian.
Transmission for both concise and extensive Ngöndro will be provided during the teaching. This is an essential teaching for anyone interested in beginning or continuing Ngöndro practice. It is also a powerful opportunity to make an auspicious connection with the teachings of the Chokling Tersar. As we prepare to enter the new Tibetan year (on March 3), we encourage any individuals who have been considering this practice to join us for these teachings.
