We are very pleased to announce our seventh year of Sādhana Ritual Courses, scheduled for January 2017 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The courses will focus on the preliminary practices and sādhana practices from the Chokling New Treasures Lineage (Chokling Tersar). The main points of practice, as well as the ritual tradition of chant melodies, mudrās, torma, shrine arrangement, musical instruments and more will be taught in Tibetan by Lama Sherab Dorje, a senior lama of Ka-nying Shedrub Ling monastery, and translated into English.

Our objective is for non-Tibetan practitioners to be able to learn and practice the Vajrayāna ritual tradition in a genuine and thorough way.

Moreover, this year, the year of the monkey, is extremely auspicious and special because it is the year in which Guru Rinpoche manifested on this earth. This being so, all three courses focus on Guru Rinpoche practices.

The Chokling New Treasures Lineages

Chokling-Tersar

The Chokling Tersar, or Chokling New Treasures Lineage, is the collected treasure revelations of the great treasure revealer Orgyen Chokgyur Lingpa (1829-1870), one of the greatest visionary masters in Tibetan history. These teachings and practices are a direct transmission from the great Lotus-born Master, Guru Padmasambhava and are specifically meant to be transmitted and practiced during this day and age and are now widely practiced by both the Kagyu and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

Tukdrub Barché Künsel Preliminary Practices

Tukdrub-Barchey-KunselAs His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche said:

When we take our first steps on the path, we are not yet capable of helping others. To accomplish the good of others, we must first perfect ourselves, by purifying and transforming our minds. This is the aim of what we call the preliminary practices, which establish the foundations of all spiritual progress. You may feel like dispensing with these foundations in order to practice teachings that you think are more profound, but if you do so, you are building a palace on the surface of a frozen lake.[1]

These preliminary practices (ngöndro), also known as the Four Foundations, include contemplations on the four mind-changings to turn our mind towards the dharma, and the practices of refuge, bodhicitta and so on to purify our negative karma and obscurations and to gather the accumulations of merit and wisdom. The particular preliminary practices we will be learning come Lamé Tukdrub Barché Künsel, (Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles), a blessed cycle of treasure teachings given by Guru Rinpoche and revealed by Chokgyur Lingpa. For more information, see The Great Gate by Rangjung Yeshe Publications.

Tukdrub Trinley Nyingpo

Tukdrub-Trinley_NyingpoThe Tukdrub Trinley Nyingpo pertains to one of the main cycles of teachings in the Chokling Tersar known as Lamé Tukdrub Barché Künsel, (Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles). The Trinley Nyingpo is the condensed sādhana from this cycle. The chief figure in the practice is Guru Rinpoche, with the sambhogakāya Avalokiteśvara and the dharmakāya Amitābha, surrounded by his twelve emanations. The Trinley Nyingpo is one of the most popular and widely-practiced sādhanas in the Chokling Tersar and is a practice that many people around the world seem to have a strong connection with.

His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche said about this treasure teaching:

The Barché Künsel is the heart essence of the accomplished master Padmasambhava, who perceives the three times in their entirety. It is the quintessence of one billion heart sādhanas of the Guru, the most unique terma buried in the land of Tibet, and it is the first among the Four Cycles of Guru Sadhana. This Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles contains in completeness all the profound key points of the view, meditation, and conduct of the Three Inner Yoga Tantras.

This pure and perfect teaching, which effortlessly bestows, in accordance with one’s wishes, the all-encompassing supreme and common siddhis, temporarily and ultimately, was an unprecedented diffusion of the gemstones of the profound meaning, like opening up the treasury of the universal monarch.

 

Tukdrub Yishyin Norbu (a.k.a Sampa Lhundrub, Spontaneous Fulfiller of All Wishes)

Tukdrub-Yishyin-Norbu
Tukdrub Yishyin Norbu (Spontaneous Fulfiller of All Wishes) is a blessed teaching given by Guru Rinpoche and revealed by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Lingpa. This unique practice of Guru Rinpoche and his thirteen emanations is said to be extremely effective in helping oneself and others achieve good fortune and protection from all types of calamities, temporary and ultimate, such as conflict, disease, poverty, obstacle-makers, vicious animals, disturbances of the four natural elements, robbers, sudden death, the intermediate state, clinging to reality, and the sufferings of the six classes of beings.
We will be learning the medium-length sādhana of this practice.

Five Extraordinary Treasures : A Supreme Method to Accumulate Merit

Chokgyur Lingpa Foundation is proud to announce that Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche will be performing the Five Extraordinary Treasures Grand Puja in Hong Kong and Malaysia this year.

IMG_5162s

The Five Extraordinary Treasures – Long Life, Health, Wealth, Harmony and Dharma – are based on a teaching by Guru Rinpoche in the treasure text The Heart Essence of Oral Instructions (Sheldam Nyingjang), from the New Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa. These five treasures encapsulate all the qualities that are necessary to render meaning and bring forth true joy and happiness in our lives.

Hong Kong : Tsimshatsui Community Hall, Kowloon, Oct 4 – 6, 2013
Malaysia : ChinWoo Auditorium, Kuala Lumpur, Nov 22 – 24, 2013
(Nov 24 coincides with Lhabab Duchen)

To participate in the Hong Kong Grand Puja, click here.

Whilst there will be specific activities related each of the Five Treasures, the puja will centre around the accumulation of 100,000 feast offering (Tib. tsok) based on the practice of Sampa Lhundrup and the offering of 100,000 butter lamps.

Feast Offering

Sampa_Lhundrub

It is taught that the most supreme method to gather the accumulations of merit and wisdom and to purify one’s obscurations is feast offerings (Tib. tsok, San. ganachakra). Through a genuine feast offering, one gathers all the positive conditions and perfects the common and supreme accomplishments. Within the feast offering practice, one is practicing the whole path of Buddha’s teachings, beginning with refuge and bodhicitta, followed by offerings and confession embraced by pure perception and non-conceptual wakefulness, and ending with dedication of merit.

Sampa Lhundrup (Spontaneous Fulfiller of All Wishes) is a blessed teaching given by Guru Rinpoche and revealed as a treasure by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Lingpa. This practice is said to be extremely effective in helping us and others achieve good fortune and protection from all types of calamities, temporary and ultimate, such as conflict, disease, poverty, obstacle-makers, vicious animals, disturbances of the four natural elements, robbers, sudden death, the intermediate state, clinging to reality, and the sufferings of the six classes of beings.

Watch the following video for Phakchok Rinpoche’s explanation on the benefits of this practice.

If we sincerely and wholeheartedly chant the Sampa Lhundrub prayer and feast offering, just like a wish-fulfilling jewel, all of our temporary and ultimate fears will be cleared away and thus all of one’s aims and wishes will spontaneously be fulfilled without effort. Seeing the mass of natural catastrophes, mental suffering, and obstacles that face us in this present age makes this blessed practice especially timely and imperative.

Lamp Offering

Lamp OfferingThe only remedy for our continual cycle of suffering is the two accumulations of merit and wisdom which liberate us by cutting through our afflictions and dispelling the shroud of our ignorance. In order for wisdom to be able to dawn within us we need a vast store of merit and one of the best ways to accumulate merit is to make offerings to the three jewels. While there are so many different ways to make offerings, in Buddha’s own discourses as well as in many treatises by other great masters, it’s said that making lamp offerings is one of the most effective kinds of offerings, the lamp being a symbol of the wisdom that dispels the darkness of ignorance and expands the light of wisdom. For this reason, all of the great masters of the past up until the present have stressed the importance of making daily lamp offerings as a support for our progress on the path. 

Watch the following video below for Phakchok Rinpoche’s explanation on the benefits of lamp offering.
