During this three-day retreat Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will teach us how to develop the Vajrayana view. He will explain how to practice Vajrayana meditation and transform our perception to establish a fearless vajra mind.
Rinpoche will identify and elucidate Vajrayana principles according to Maha Yoga and the Guhyagarbha Tantra, showing us how to cultivate these principles in our daily life.
Rinpoche says, if we have proper Vajrayana view and meditation our whole life will be affected, including our interactions, connections with others, and how we relate to emotions and beliefs. At the end of our life, by maintaining the Vajrayana view, our experience of death will be transformed.
“The Vajrayana view affects all aspects of your life and will empower you to live your life majestically and robustly. We are Vajrayana practitioners, we must understand Vajrayana principles.” – Orgyen Chowang

From Lama Tharchin Rinpoche:
“It is my heart wish that you come and make a connection with Khen Rinpoche (Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche) as he is truly special. Our lord of refuge Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche has said that this khenpo is unlike any other – really genuine. Not only is his knowledge vast, but he brought this into his experience, so that when he teaches he talks from his heart, which brings authentic penetration.”
