The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena – Part 4 (virtual)

August 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena – Part 4 (virtual)
With Khenpo Yeshi
Saturday-Sunday, August 22nd and 23rd, 2020

Khenpo Yeshi returns for the 15th straight year, but this time via the internet, for our first virtual teaching. The link to join the teaching will be available to all students for free, although we strongly encourage donating whatever amount you can or better yet, becoming a member of Drikung Namgyal Ling and support this teaching, the dharma center, and all future events.

This time, Part 4 of 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, we will explore the final chapters. By elucidating this text, Khenpo Yeshi simultaneously introduces 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 2020 we can celebrate the auspicious good fortune of this masterpiece having been translated into English, and 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 fourth 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.

Teachings Fee – 2 days of teaching

Daily Schedule (August 22nd and 23rd, 2020):

  • 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm
