Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche will return to Pema Osel Ling this December 30, 2017  – January 7, 2018, to give preliminary practice of Great Perfection (Rushin) and Trekchod meditation instructions from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche's Heart Jewel for the Fortunate Ones: A Pointing out Instruction for the Great Perfection and Three Pieces of Advice given to Gelong Yeshe Rabsal, Dechen Dorje and Rigzang Dorje.  


These instructions, coupled with intensive meditation practice, provide an incredible opportunity to gain stability in meditation under the guidance of a truly genuine and experienced meditation master. For Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche's biography, click here.

In Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche's words: "... It is very rare to get the complete Trekchod teachings from a completely qualified practitioner lama such as Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche. To receive this kind of teaching requires many positive circumstances and conditions coming together and therefore it is very precious." 

To attend this retreat, "completion of a full ngondro is very good," according to Rinpoche.
