Event Details

In 2022 and 2023 Rinpoche taught from the Dzogchen teachings the Six Lamps, the First and Second Lamp. He will continue this teaching in this seminar.

The source of these teachings is Tapiritsa who manifested himself in the expanse of the sky and transmitted teachings to Gyerpung Nangzher Lodpo, probably sometime at the turn of the 7th and 8th centuries AD. The ‘lamps’ in the title, one by one illuminate different key points of Dzogchen.

The Six Lamps is one of the four important texts in the tradition of the oral transmission of the Zhang Zhung.  At the core of the dzogchen teachings is the view that all sentient beings are primordially pure, perfected, and have the potential to spontaneously manifest in a beneficial way. This capacity is within each and every one of us. It is our nature, yet we often find ourselves alienated and disconnected from ourselves and others as we rush about in our day-to-day lives. If we are willing to directly and nakedly encounter the experiences of our ordinary life, however challenging they may be, these experiences become the doorway to realizing our true nature, the doorway to inner refuge.
