Mahamudra Teachings & Retreat with Phakchok Rinpoche at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde New York

July 13, 2018 - July 18, 2018

Mahamudra instructions are renowned as being short, precise, and easy to practice. In this retreat, Phakchok Rinpoche will explain how to traverse the path from the outset of the four mind-changings up until essential Mahamudra , the peak of all of Buddha’s teachings. During the sessions, he will teach different meditation techniques, depending upon the student level.  He will also offer priceless pith instructions and different methods for overcoming various obstacles that can occur in one’s meditation practice.

This retreat is a teaching and practice opportunity that is deeply beneficial both for beginners and also for more advanced practitioners.

Rinpoche suggests that all students prepare for this program by following Rinpoche’s online course on Samye Dharma in which he teaches the various stages of  śamatha or “calm abiding” meditation, with and without support. Ideally, it would be best to start practicing these teachings now in order to develop some practice experience and sincere questions prior to the retreat. This is also an excellent method for familiarizing yourself with Rinpoche’s direct and humorous teaching style.
