April 14 – 16, 2017
We are delighted to welcome back Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche April 14th – 16th and give teachings on the fundamentals of Tantra. Rinpoche will be teaching from Jigme Lingpa’s Treasury of Precious Qualities (Yönten Dzö), the chapter on the Pitaka of the Vidyadharas. This chapter covers many aspects of tantric practice, but Rinpoche will give us an overview of empowerments and samayas. He will also teach on the three samadhis and four stakes that bind the life force.
The three samadhis are an important aspect of wisdom deity practice presented in the tantric Sadhana practices. Four Stakes to Bind the Life-force are a key principle in the tantric practices of the Nyingma tradition. It is traditionally said that these four stakes bring together our own ordinary body, speech, mind and actions with the enlightened form, speech, mind and activities of the wisdom deity. They are like stakes that bind these together. If you have ever received an empowerment or practice Sadhana of a particular wisdom deity then you will not want to miss this opportunity.
Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche. He has received teachings from over forty masters representing all five schools of Tibetan Buddhism, Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya, Gelug, and Shiji (or Chod). Tulku Yeshi has authored fifteen books on subjects of Tibetan Buddhism and culture. He also writes novels, poetry for mind training and how to enjoy life.
