The Great Dzogchen Master Longchenpa’s Version of The Four Precious Topics of Dharma

The entire path to enlightenment, from the beginning stage of an ordinary person all the way through to complete enlightenment, is described in these four precious teachings. The first topic provides a description of how to turn one’s mind toward the path of dharma. The second topic illustrates how to ensure that one’s spiritual practice follows the right path. The third describes how the path of dharma can liberate one from one's own distortions and negative emotions. The fourth and final topic illustrates how all experiences and distorted states of mind can arise as enlightened awareness.

 

During this weekend retreat, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will elucidate Longchenpa’s version of The Four Precious Topics of Dharma. He will spend time exploring each of these topics and lead us in meditation sessions throughout the weekend.

 

The retreat will begin at 10 AM on Saturday, November 3 and end at approximately 5 PM on Sunday, November 4.
