Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche will hold the autumn seminar online from November 20 to 25, 2020. In Gomde the teachings are live-streamed and viewed in the group. It is a wonderful opportunity to receive Rinpoche's precious teachings with Lama Tenzin and other practitioners as a sangha. The support of a group and the exchange of ideas with Dharma siblings is a valuable way of getting deeply involved in the Dharma, especially at Rinpoche's seminars.
More information about the teachings will be announced here, in the newsletter and on Facebook soon - be sure to keep the days free!
With the forthcoming online-seminar with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, we will have the rare opportunity experience the qualities of a person embodying an unbroken lineage of transmission. Rinpoche's insight into the nature of things enables him to impart the Buddhist teachings completely, authentically and free from dogma. Rinpoche’s meditative stability helps us stabilize our own meditation and his realization of buddha-nature allows us to perceive our own precious buddha-nature. The opportunity to receive this profound teaching from Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche is also a precious opportunity to connect with a preeminent Buddhist master that should not be missed.
"It's about an open heart and a clear mind. An open heart is full of compassion for all beings, mahakaruna in Sanskrit. A clear mind understands the emptiness of all phenomena, shunyata in Sanskrit. Developing that unconditional compassion and wisdom is the goal of our practice."
Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche
