Rinpoche will give meditation instructions on the pith text, Dudjom Rinpoche's "The Heart Jewel of the Fortunate: Personal Advice on Dzogchen Praxis." This short commentary appears in Counsels from my Heart, a collection of Dudjom Rinpoche's writings that was translated by Padmakara Translation Group and published by Shambhala in 2001.
The main focus of the retreat will again be practice. Rinpoche feels if people practice together in the retreat they can start to recognize their rigpa a little, and they will be more likely to continue in that practice the rest of the year so that the small fire that has been kindled will blaze. If they listen to a lot of teachings during the retreat and don’t practice, then it is less likely they are going to practice at home. These meditation instructions, together with the requisite meditation practice, therefore provide an unparalleled opportunity for the student to gain stability in meditation under the guidance of a genuine and experienced meditation master.
