1999ligmincha Institute Summer Retreat At Serenity Ridge

The following article is from the Spring, 1999 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

This summer's program will be led by two wonderful teachers: His Holiness Lungtok Tenpa'i Nyima, the Abbot of Menri Monastery and the most senior lineage holder of Bon, and Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, the founder of the Ligmincha Institute and the author of Wonders of the Natural Mind and the Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep. Kyongtrul Rinpoche, a senior teacher at the Dialectic School at Menri, will again be accompanying His Holiness.

We will receive the inspirational biographies of the twenty-four Masters of the Oral Transmissions of Zhang Zhung. The teachings of these enlightened Dzogchen masters are synthesized into poetic, experiential key works which transmit the pith meditative instructions of Dzogchen, the AGreat PerfectionŒ¬ teachings. We will also continue our study of the Bon Mother Tantra, this year emphasizing the bardo (intermediate states) and the practices of the elements (tsalung). His Holiness and Tenzin Rinpoche plan to teach both of these cycles throughout the three weeks of our retreat.

Throughout the retreat, there will be meditation instruction and guided practice sessions for students at all levels of experience. Tenzin Rinpoche strongly recommends that newcomers attend the first week as special arrangements will be made for introductory instruction.
