July 28–30, 2017
We are delighted to welcome back Lama Lena to the Rime Center, July 28 through 30. Lama Lena will be teaching on Patrul Rinpoche’s Hitting the Essence in Three Words: “The Special Teaching of the Wise and Glorious King”. Lama Lena is a highly accomplished yogini in the Dzogchen tradition who will deliver very clear and accurate teachings on Dzogchen. She is accessible, easy to relate to, open to questions, and willing to deal directly with many of the questions to which we are seeking answers.
Dzogchen is a Tibetan word that means Great Perfection. On the outer level it refers to a method of meditative practice that enables us to recognize our true nature. Ultimately, great perfection is that very nature: the natural, primordially pure nature of mind.
When she is not traveling, teaching, or translating, she works providing medical assistance to the Tibetan refugee community as well as the local Indian villagers and mountain tribes people. At the request of H.E., Zigar Choktrul Rinpoche and Ven. Wangdor Rinpoche, as well as many Western and Tibetan dharma students, she has been traveling and teaching from the lineages she holds in an informal style that is humorous, artful, and well worth experiencing.
