INTRODUCTION TO Buddhahood without Meditation
with Tulku Thadral Rinpoche (Click to read his biography)
March 6 @ 6:30 - 8 pm 

Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Tulku Thadral Rinpoche, will give an introductory lecture on “Buddhahood without Meditation” (Nang Jang), a collection of Dzogchen instructions that Dudjom Lingpa received in a series of visionary encounters with various enlightened beings. This approach, known as Trekchod “Cutting Through,” cuts through our strong grasping to ego or self-identity. Thirteen of Dudjom Lingpa’s disciples attained rainbow body and were liberated into Buddhahood using this method. Tulku Thadral Rinpoche is the Director of Education of the Dudjom Shedra.
Suggested donation $10/door
