Starting on Sunday, July 29th, 2018, we will be offering a viewing of the teaching of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche on “Transforming Suffering and Happiness” based on a text by Dodrupchen Jikme Tenpe Nyima, a Nyingma master with a strong connection to Dzogchen Monastery.

This teaching presents a profound, yet easily accessible approach to transforming suffering and happiness from obstructions to aids on the path to enlightenment. This teaching is simply breathtaking in all respects. The text provides a method of for working with our habitual patterns of relating to suffering that is easy to understand, yet simultaneously mind-altering even for long-time practitioners. Jikme Tenpe Nyima’s approach, which is based on teachings by Shantideva, is applicable to all forms of suffering, from minor annoyances to life-threatening illness and financial disaster. Rinpoche’s commentary transports this teaching directly into our mind, our world, and our experience with brilliance and humor.

Each of the 4 videos in the series will be offered on Sunday, July 29th, August 5th, 19th, and 26th.

All are welcome! Feel free to attend all or any of the video series viewings. Attendance is free. Donations are appreciated.
