Drenpa Serdam – The Golden Teachings of Drenpa Namkha
Teaching and Practice with
Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche
12 to 17 November 2021
In spring, we began to study and practise the Dzogchen cycle "The Golden Teachings of Drenpa Namkha" (Drenpa Serdam) together with our teacher Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche. Fortunately, during the summer, we had the opportunity to continue this cycle with two more online seminars.
From 12 November to 17 November, we will again continue this series online. We are very happy that Khenchen Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche has agreed to teach this cycle again this year. Everyone is welcome - even practitioners who have not participated in the previous three seminars.
The cycle "Drenpa Serdam" is a compilation of several Dzogchen texts and teachings that Kuntu Zangpo directly transmitted to the great master Drenpa Namkha. From Drenpa Namkha, these teachings were then transmitted to his son Tsewang Rigdzin. From him and other deities, masters and Dakinis in the form of visions, the transmission was received by Master Shense Lhaje, who eventually wrote down these visionary encounters. In this way, those teachings reached us in an unbroken transmission through our teachers. The cycle describes a complete Dzogchen path and accordingly includes everything that is needed on the path to complete liberation.
In this seminar, we will focus on the next chapter, 'Introducing nakedly and directly the Essential Meaning of the Pith Instructions.' It is also called the 'Essential Meaning of the Self-Awareness.'
