The word Mahamudra draws the attention and tickles our sense of curiosity - the sacred, secret teaching. The essence of all 84000 teachings of Buddha. Our mind tries to understand it in its own terms, our intellect tries to grasp it with the concepts we know, and with our minds eyes - or even with [...]

A Long Life Prayer for Choje Lama Rabsang written by Mingyur Rinpoche

No man, woman, creature or a thing is an island. We know it yet we many times forget it. We are all connected in this miraculous net of causes and conditions, in other words we are together in this deep and sometimes very confusing karmic soup. Our lifespan is something that is usually not in [...]

Using Emotions as a Path of Practice – Lama Rabsang’s Monthly Teaching

This was a greatly anticipated weekend in February. For many people, those few months that Lama Rabsang spent in his retreat solitude felt like ages. It could be felt in the atmosphere and seen in a number of people (which was about 40) that his guidance and presence was much missed over the winter. Even [...]

The First Winter Retreat at Palpung Wales – How Was It?

In this vast and deep ocean of samsara one can occasionally find a life raft which keeps ones head above the water for a while. More rarely there is a chance to board into a ship which is sailing the same seas but it gives you a chance to arise above the water to have a [...]

Many Hands Make Light Work – Boxes, Paths and The Hut

It has been one very busy November at Palpung Wales. Suddenly we had an outburst of visitors, retreatants and much needed volunteers - those many arms of Chenrezig.

The Chariot Traversing The Noble Path – Ngondro retreat

The Preliminary Practices, Ngondro, is something that one must have at least heard of when going a bit deeper into the practices of Vajrayana Buddhism. Ngondro is striking with the number of repetitions of certain practices: 111 111 prostrations, and the same amount of Vajrasattva mantras, mandala offerings and Guru Yoga practice. The numbers can [...]
