"Delightful Ocean of Pith Instructions"

Trekchod - Rushen Retreat

December 30 - January 7

Dear Becky,

For those fortunate individuals who are qualified, Tulku Thadral Rinpoche has chosen to give Rushen-Trekchod teachings based on a recently translated commentary by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche entitled, "Delightful Ocean of Pith Instructions". Based on Dudjom Lingpa's "Buddhahood Without Meditation: Instructions on the Swift Path of the Great Transfer", the text was Dudjom Rinpoche's first treatise (at age 17) on the Great Perfection.

Tulku Thadral Rinpoche will give teachings on the first chapter, which covers Rushen, the preliminary practices for Trekchod.

Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa said in the foreword to this text,

"If you wish to accomplish the unsurpassed level, merely intending to practice the Dharma or acting like a practitioner outwardly will not help. Without grasping at the swift path as the easy way, if you go to a remote or isolated place and turn your mind toward the essential meaning, resting your mind one-pointedly in sustained practice, you will obtain the fruit."

There is no more perfect place to practice than at Pema Osel Ling, under the supreme tutelage of Tulku Thadral Rinpoche. Students may also participate by streaming, but we encourage you to attend in person.

Even if you have taken Rushen instructions in the past, these teachings with Tulku Thadral Rinpoche will definitely "turn your mind toward the essential meaning"! Find out more and register here.

Becky, for your friends at Pema Osel Ling
