We started this year's Ngondro retreat auspiciously on Lhabab Duchen 10th November by remembering Buddha's life and example. We offered 108 candles to the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha) and made a wish that by offering the light, all beings everywhere would recognise their true nature and be completely free from suffering and pain.

Akong Rinpoche’s Blessings Through the Screen

We didn't really know what to expect. The loss of Akong Rinpoche four years ago had touched some people very close, some people only had heard of it. Some people came to the evening only knowing the name of the documentary movie Akong-A Remarkable Life. We enjoyed a buffet dinner prior to the movie, and [...]

In Karma Kagyu lineage the practitioners typically begin their serious practice path of Mahamudra meditation by practicing outer and inner preliminaries, called Ngondro in Tibetan. These practices include four contemplations, that help to turn the mind away from the mundane concerns of one's present life and toward the attainment of liberation from suffering and ultimate [...]

The Path of Mahamudra Teaching Day

By | 2017-09-03T12:11:43+00:00 September 3rd, 2017|All|

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

By | 2017-02-04T18:00:11+00:00 February 4th, 2017|All, Palpung News|

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 [...]
