The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena – Part 3

The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena – Part 3
With Khenpo Yeshi
Saturday-Sunday, August 24th and 25th, 2019

Khenpo Yeshi returns to Tucson for the 14th straight year, and this time he will complete our journey into Longchen Rabjam’s famous treatise, The Chö Ying Dzöd, The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena and its accompanying commentary. By elucidating this text, Khenpo Yeshi will simultaneously introduce us to the work’s essential instruction on the profound Dzogchen practice of Trekchö or “cutting through.”

What do we cut through? Conceptual delusion. In the context of Dzogchen, we cut through the flimsy fantasy world of self-grasping and we do so swiftly, emboldened by the simple recognition of the innate incorruptibility of our own primordial awareness or Buddha Nature.

As dharma students in 2019 we can celebrate the auspicious good fortune of not only this masterpiece having been translated into English, but also the special insight of Khenpo Yeshi. A scholar in both Tibetan and English languages, Khenpo Yeshi has received extensive trainings, both academic and spiritual, too numerous to list here, and completed three-year meditative retreat under the guidance of the renowned Dzogchen master, H.E. Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. He currently lives in California and attends Berkeley as a PhD student.

This teaching represents the third installment of a multi-year series, each year traversing a few more chapters. Please join us as we explore this cycle of Dzogchen teachings with Khenpo Yeshi at Drikung Namgyal Ling.
