Preliminary Practices from the Lamé Tukdrup Barché Künsel: Going for Refuge
January 15, 2022 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am UTC+5.75
Samye Institute is delighted to announce a new monthly teaching series, generously sponsored by the Indonesian 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 refuge portion of the Concise Ngöndro from the Tukdrup Barché Künsel. He will teach in Tibetan and we will provide translation into English and Indonesian.
Drupla will be teaching on January 15th, 2022 at 10:15AM Jakarta Time (9AM Nepal Time). Check your local time here, please note that this event will occur on the evening of the 14th in the Americas.
Phakchok Rinpoche emphasizes that Four Foundations practice is very important. Students usually are instructed to begin the Ngöndro after several years of daily meditation practice. Samye Institute has a course devoted to these profound practices, containing Phakchok Rinpoche’s teachings and explanations of every stage of the Ngöndro.
The Great Gate: A Guidebook to the Guru’s Heart Practice is a compilation of instructions on the preliminary practices by the great masters, Chokling Dewey Dorje, Dudjom Rinpoche, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, and Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. It is of great benefit for any students continuing or considering beginning Ngöndro practice. Akara Collection also has a thangka depicting the Refuge Tree associated with the Preliminary Practices of the Tukdrup Barché Künsel cycle.
