Vivid Awareness: Khenpo Gangshar’s Mind Instructions on how to use Difficulties as a Way of Practicing Dharma

In the summer of 1957 the Buddhist teacher and sage Khenpo Gangshar predicted the difficulties soon approaching Tibet. He began to teach in a new way allowing everyone listening to him to use difficulties as a way of practicing Dharma. The teachings consisted of the most important perspectives and practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. They were presented in such a way they could easily be used by everyone – even under the most difficult circumstances.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is going to teach about these profound instructions of Khenpo Gangshar mainly in the evenings and guide us on how to apply them today.

ONLINE: The Four Immeasurables: How to deepen our love, compassion, joy and equanimity

Start: Friday, October 15, 7:00 p.m. / End: Sunday, October 17, 11:30 a.m.
Acharya Lama Sönam Rabgye

During this weekend Acharya Lama Sönam Rabgye will explain the meaning of the four immeasurable qualities and guide us in reflection and meditation on them.

The four immeasurable or the four limitless qualities that literally have no measure (apramana) are love (Skt. metta), compassion (karuna), joy (mudita) and equanimity (upekkha). By dissolving restrictive boundaries, these four qualities expand our ability to experience in our meditation as well as in daily life.
