Sādhana Ritual Course 2018. November 29 – December 22

Samye Institute has announced its ninth annual Sādhana Ritual Course This course will focus on the Trinley Nyingpo and Pema Khandro sādhana practices from the lineage of the New Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa (Chokling Tersar). The main points of practice, including ritual traditions of chant melodies, mudrās, torma, shrine arrangements, and musical instruments, will be taught in Tibetan by Lama Sherab Dorje, a senior lama of Ka-nying Shedrub Ling monastery, and translated into English. Main objective is for non-Tibetan practitioners to be able to learn and practice the Vajrayāna ritual tradition in a genuine and thorough way. The Tukdrup Trinley Nyingpo sādhana (the Yoga of Essential Activity from Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles) and the Pema Khandro (from the Three Roots of the Profundity of Longevity Cycle) are both deeply profound practices that were revealed by the Great Treasure Revealer, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. The Trinley Nyingpo is the condensed sādhana for the accomplishment of the twelve manifestations of Guru Rinpoche according to Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of all Obstacles (Tukdrup Barchey Künsel). The Pema Khandro is the magnetizing ḍākinī practice belonging to theThree Roots of the Profundity of Longevity Cycle, among the Seven Cycles of Profundity (Zabpa Khordün).

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche public teaching in Kyiv 11-12 of June 2016, Day 1, Session 2

https://youtu.be/Mh7y0iZPTCg To read the first part of the teachings, please follow this link.   Welcome, everyone.   There are many beings in this world. We, human beings, are interested in studying: getting to know different types or fields of knowledge and their purposes. It serves its function to become successful in life. It helps our prosperity, our wealth and achieving a certain status in society. So this is why we usually tend to become educated and study different subjects. This has become widely spread in the world.   The other things that we can study and learn are the traditions and so-called religions. There are many types of religions. The common point in all of them is that they teach how to help others, do good things, cultivate virtues, be free from negativity, negative emotions and so on. So this is what is common about all the religions, what they preach, what is being practiced or experienced.   Buddhism is a religion in its definite, pure tradition, but it is slightly different. How is it different? It is different in a sense that it wants us to investigate, even the words of the Buddha, to examine all things, all the phenomena: starting from the phenomena of form to the phenomena of the Omniscience. Buddha wants us to discover what the truth really is.   According to the tradition, there are two types of truths. One is the conventional truth, and the other is the ultimate truth. Conventional truth refers to how things seem to be, how they appear. But this is not the only truth. The actual truth - or the ultimate truth, is which shows how the phenomena really are, its actual nature.

Lama Tenzin Sangpo about generosity and charity

Generosity is like an international language: everybody understands what it is, regardless of your educational or financial background. More and more ways of altruism are emerging every year. Within a few years Ukraine has shown an increased interest in charity organisations as well. For the majority of people helping others has become a part of everyday life. We talked with Lama Tenzin Sangpo about generosity in terms of buddhism, its relation to charity and which forms of voluntary help are the most important to accumulate merits for buddhists. What is charity and how does it work? Charity as an expression of generosity has become a part of life for a lot of people nowadays. It’s clear that you don’t need a lot of money, power nor free time if you want to change the world. Good, small actions help to increase the quality of life for others. The strange thing here is that it’s “contagious”. If some of your friends are doing charity work, you’ll likely get involved as well. Being generous together is easy. Other people’s generosity encourages us to do the same. So maybe generosity is a natural need? Lama Tenzin Sangpo: “People feel that problems happen due to some negative emotions, their consequences and the clinging to the “self”. Many of us have a deep understanding: if I only help myself and not those who are around me, I won’t become happier. People know and feel that their own happiness is dependant on the state of others around them. That’s why they’re trying to direct their care and actions outwards to improve the atmosphere. That’s why charity is so popular”. Generosity can undo our wrong perception of the world. Giving voluntarily - is a kind gesture, that works against one of the ten unkind actions known in …
