Ngondro Program at Pema Osel Ling

 Ngondro Faculty 2022

 

 

What is Ngondro and why will you benefit?

Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche said in his introduction to A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar, “As an example of the importance of the preliminary practices [Ngondro], if someone wants to build a special house or temple, the most important part of the construction is the foundation in order for the building to be stable.” Similarly, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche taught, “Ngondro is called a preliminary practice because it lays a foundation for the two main stages of Vajrayana practice: the creation stage and the completion stage. Since it contains all paths to the realization of enlightenment, every effort should be made to complete the Ngondro in order to fully cultivate and realize its profound benefits.”

Ngondro is the gateway to the advanced practices of Dzogchen, as well.  The lamas of the Vajrayana Foundation have required students to finish their Ngondro in order to participate in Rushen (a secret practice that comprises the Dzogchen preliminaries), our annual Trekchӧd (Cutting Through Solidity) teachings, and in other advanced practices.
