Knowing the Nature of Mind
The Buddha teaches us that we each possess, as our ultimate nature, a pure, all-encompassing primordial wisdom far more profound than we can possibly imagine. Through the practice of Dzogchen, we can come to recognize the unimpeded nature of our own mind and embody our innate compassionate and perfectly enlightened essence. The purpose of the retreat, designed for both beginners and advanced practitioners, is to introduce us to this natural state that has, in fact, always been with us. Rinpoche will then impart simple, yet powerful, guidance that allows us to train, step by step, in unfolding our innate essence. The Garrison Institute provides a perfect setting for this intensive Dzogchen meditation retreat which will allow retreat participants to be able to bring this practice to life in their everyday experience.
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche will use as a text and starting point, Tsele Natsok Rangdrol’s The Heart of the Matter.
