Jamgön Kongtrul’s Visionary Journey to the Glorious Copper-Colored Mountain

This month I would like to continue with the accounts of great masters’ visionary journeys to Zangdok Palri with the last to cover among the Khyen-Kong-Chok (Khyentsé, Kongtrül and Chokling) great trio of masters: Jamgön Kongtrül Rinpoché (’jam mgon kong sprul blo gros mtha’ yas, 1813-1899).

Benefits of the Tenth Day of the Lunar Month

On this second Guru Rinpoche day of the lunar year of the pig, I wish to continue introducing you to Zangdok Palri, the Glorious Copper-Colored Mountain, through the various accounts of great masters’ visionary journeys.

The Nectar for the Ears of the Fortunate

This Guru Rinpoche day letter being the first of the lunar year of the pig and after much consideration, I have decided to focus this year on Zangdok Palri or the Glorious Copper-Colored Mountain, where our Precious Maha Guru Padmasambhava dwells, through a series of personal accounts or narrations of a great practitioner’s visionary journeys to Zangdok Palri.

Unlocking the Door of Blessings of the Great Perfection

Devotion and pure perception are the two keys needed to unlock the door of blessings of the Great Perfection. The more we develop them, the closer we get to the true nature of things, and to the fruit of our practice. The Great Tertön Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa excelled in these two qualities.

Mindful Joyous Year

As we get close to the end of yet another fleeting year, I truly hope that the year was spent mindfully in a meaningful way. So before this year ends I would like to once again send you a mindful reminder: When you know there’s nothing more important than the mind, then you can turn your mind towards the Dharma at that moment.

Three Modes of Faith, Bodhichitta, and Refuge

Today, on Guru Rinpoche day, I’d like to share with you all a short instruction. There are three modes that pertain to what can be perceived. These are: 1. apparent, 2. hidden, and 3. extremely hidden

Meditation Without Reflection Is Blind

When reflecting, it is important to do so with your practice, personality, responsibility, and so forth. Reflect on your actions and reflect on your self. When you don’t reflect, you are like a blind person, not knowing where you are heading.

With My Guru in Tharpaling

Happy Guru Rinpoche Day to all of you! I hope you all are healthy and happy. As I am sending this message to you all today, I am in the presence of my Guru Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche’s Kudung Chorten in Tharpaling, in the beautiful valley of Bumthang, loved and cherished dearly by him just as it was treasured in the same manner by Gyalwa Longchenpa, from whom the blessed lineage of Longchen Nyingthik started.

Aspiration for Your Happiness and Well-Being

How have you all been? I very much hope that you all and your loved ones are happy and healthy. Through out all my messages every month for the last twelve or so years, my aspiration initially was to send out a reminder to you all once a month on a very special day to bring your mind home, be mindful, cherish where you are and if possible create a good karma.
