The ancient Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud Dzogchen teachings are methods to realize the unconditioned and full potential of the clarity aspect of one’s own natural mind.
These great teachings will be given by His Eminence Lopon Trinley Nyima Rinpoche – a Dzogchen master and the Lopon of Menri Monastery. Rinpoche is the successor of the unbroken Yangton lineage.
Thogal practice is an integral part of Dzogchen teachings of Great Perfection by which the practitioner overcomes all limitations. Going beyond time, birth, death, aging and sickness, finally realizing the Great Transfer – transcending his own material body into body of light. This result means manifesting unlimited wisdoms and compassion for all beings in all dimensions.
Students will spend ten full days in retreat with Menri Lopon. Daily schedule includes teachings, practice and daily rituals.
