June 24th–26th, 2016
We enthusiastically welcome back Lama Lena to the Rime Center on June 24th through June 26th. Lama Lena will be teaching on Padmasambhava’s The Treasure of the Lotus Crystal Cave: The Direct Instruction of Shri Singha. Lama Lena is a highly accomplished yogini in the Dzogchen tradition who will guide us through very clear and accurate Dzogchen teachings. 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 Rimpoche 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.
