Teachings on the Outer Tara Sadhana with Lama Tsultrim Sangpo

Four evenings: 7pm - 9pm each night. Check back for more details on timing.

Lama Tsultrim will teach on the practice of the Tara Sadhana of the Four Mandalas, an extraordinary teaching hidden in Tibet by Guru Rinpoche and revealed by the great Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. This sadhana confers an abundance of benefits, and as Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, for instance, pointed out, it is a sadhana that carries unique blessings.

Anyone interested in this practice is invited to join us, even if you are not familiar with the sadhana.

The Practice of Chöd with Lama Tsultrim Sangpo
May
17
to May 19

The Practice of Chöd with Lama Tsultrim Sangpo

Chöd, or “cutting through,” is a well-known practice in Tibetan Buddhism. Traditionally attributed to the eleventh-century female practitioner Machig Labdrön, it is popular in many Tibetan Buddhist lineages. Combining the traditional wisdom of the Prajnaparamita Sutras with tantric visualization methods, chöd is a direct meditational approach to cutting through ego-clinging. Chöd practice is also known for its hauntingly beautiful melodies, and has traditionally been used as part of Buddhist healing rituals.

In this weekend program Lama Tsultrim will teach from a short Chokling Tersar chöd manual designed for daily practice.

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has recommended that students practice chöd and has encouraged our sangha to learn this practice. We are therefore very fortunate to have visiting teacher Lama Tsultrim Sangpo guide us in this long-weekend of teachings on the practice of chöd.

If you have your own ritual implements—a vajra and bell and a chöd drum (slightly larger than a regular damaru)—please bring them with you. However, please note that it is not necessary to have these ritual implements to be able to participate in the program.

May

to Jun 2

Chogyam Trungpa and the Backwards Ati Path: A Seminar with Ken Friedman

This weekend program will explore Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings on taking the phenomenal world, the guru, and the three kayas as the path, with a particular emphasis on how to relate with the various levels of anxiety we encounter, from our everyday feelings of nervousness up to severe panic attacks and the heightened forms of neurosis that one might encounter on the Backwards Ati Path.

The program will include three talks, group discussions, and an introduction to a variety of personal meditation and post-meditation instructions that Ken received from the Vidyadhara, including the Sadhana of Mahamudra feast practice. Personal interviews will be available on request.

ABOUT KEN FRIEDMAN
Ken Friedman met the Vidyadhara, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1974. He has presented Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings throughout North America and Europe for more than 40 years. Ken is the author of Chogyam Trungpa and the Backwards Ati Path, a 360-page book of oral instructions for students that have received the pointing-out transmission. The Vidyadhara appointed Ken to serve as the sole instructor for the young people (6-16 years old) in the Vajradhatu community; as the Buddhist/Shambhala tutor for Gesar Mukpo (recognized as the incarnation of Trungpa Rinpoche's teacher, Jamgon Kongtrul of Sechen); as a Vajrayana Sadhana instructor; and as the Meditation Instructor to the Kalapa Court (Trungpa Rinpoche's home). Since the early 1990s, Ken has also studied closely with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, author of The Guru Drinks Bourbon. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and enjoys spending time with his wife, Linda, as well as his daughters and numerous grandchildren.

Rinpoche’s address for DHNYC: Gathering for live-stream/Zoom

It's been an incredible month: on December 1st, the lease was signed for the new home of Dharma House NYC in Queens, NY. Every day since, the community worked tirelessly to completely transform it into a space that is warm and conducive to dharma practice.

The wall behind the stage, featuring clouds in both traditional and modern style, were painted by our wonderful board member of so many talents, Zopa.

Several large and beautiful thangkas arrived from Nepal, a gift from Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, and we mounted them on December 31, just in time for the New Year.

We have just learned that Rinpoche would like to address the Dharma House NYC sangha, and that includes you! Please come to the hall at 60-06 39th Avenue, Woodside, NY 11377 (corner of 61st Street) to watch Rinpoche address us online from Gomde Austria.

We expect to start at 12 noon Eastern. If we learn of a delay, we'll post the news on our website (http://dharmahousenyc.org) and facebook (http://facebook.com/rygny).

Or join Rinpoche and the rest of us online here: https://zoom.us/j/2583413850. You will need to download the free Zoom software to your mobile device or computer ahead of time. That is available here: https://zoom.us/download.

We hope to see you Saturday! And stay tuned for news as DHNYC gets going!

Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s Dzogchen Retreat - Garrison NY

to Aug 30

Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s Dzogchen Retreat - Garrison NY

The Buddha teaches us that we each possess, as our true nature, a pure, all-encompassing wisdom far more profound than we can possibly imagine. Through the practice of Dzogchen, we can come to recognize the unimpeded nature of our own mind and embody our innate compassionate essence. The purpose of the retreat, designed for both beginners and advanced practitioners, is to introduce us to this natural state that has, in fact, always been with us. Rinpoche will then impart simple, yet powerful, guidance that will allow us to train, step by step, in unfolding our innate essence. The Garrison Institute provides a perfect setting for this intensive Dzogchen meditation retreat which will allow retreat participants to be able to bring this practice to life in their everyday experience. 

To register, email CNRteachings@gmail.com

“On the East coast, people’s interest in the dharma is growing rapidly and
the Himalayan population is also growing.
So this land can be beneficial to so many people
for many generations to come. For these reasons, in my mind, this land has
great potential to help the dharma flourish.”
--Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche
