THRANGU RINPOCHE

Teaching the Text: The Concise Mind Instructions Called Naturally Liberating Whatever You Meet–by Khenpo Gangshar

July 22 // 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Nalanda Events Center // 6287 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder, CO

$60-90

Thrangu Rinpoche has taught in over twenty-five countries and established numerous monasteries, nunneries, schools, and Dharma Centers throughout the world. He is especially known for making complex teachings accessible to Western students and is a recognized master of Mahamudra meditation.

This is the 60th anniversary of Khenpo Gangshar’s momentous teaching on the pith instructions for practicing Mahamudra and Dzogchen.

Khenpo Gangshar, a great scholar who later became a mahasiddha, had a vision of the impending invasion of Tibet while he was teaching the Uttaratantra at Trungpa Rinpoche’s Surmong monastery. He wanted all his students to receive these essential instructions on looking dirctly at one’s mind.
