The 2018 Dzogchen Buddha Path Long Weekend Urban Retreat will commence at 5 PM on Thursday, April 12, 2018 and conclude at 3 PM (or later) on Sunday, April 15, 2018. The curriculum includes in-depth teaching on the fundamental principles of Buddhism as presented in Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche’s practice text The Buddha Path. This program's engaging approach is designed to give students real-world skills for coping with the stressors of modern life by laying out a solid foundation for Dharma practice, on and off the cushion.
Our Kind Vajra Master
We are extremely happy to announce that our kind teacher His Eminence Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, a meditation master, professor of Dzogchen Shri Singha University, and Dzogchen Lineage Holder, will lead this Dzogchen Lineage Retreat and provide daily instruction to all students during the entire Retreat. This program is an extraordinary opportunity to receive profound instructions directly from a living Vajra Master born and trained in Tibet.
