“On one cushion, one person, at one time can practice all of Buddha’s teachings.”
~ Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, Novermber 24, 2008

The Dzogchen Shri Singha Foundation and Dzogchen Shri Singha of Idaho are pleased to announce the 2010 Dzogchen Autumn Retreat entitled, “Walking The Walk: Essential Advice for Living The Dharma” starting at 6 PM on Saturday, October 23, 2010 and ending at 9am on Saturday, October 30, 2010. The retreat will be taught by His Eminence Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche.

The “Walking The Walk” retreat centers on integrating the in-depth and direct teachings of Dzogchen in one’s daily life. Even in the midst of the complexities of modern daily life, the Dzogchen teachings offer powerful methods for transforming one’s anxiety, anger, and confusion into love, compassion, and wisdom. The goal of this retreat is to help deepen one’s understanding, experience, and realization with the combined practices of study, meditation, visualization, recitation, playing music, and making offerings.

The teachings will be given at the beautiful Dzogchen Retreat Center, USA. Seating is limited, so please register early.

For more information and retreat details, visit the 2010 Autumn Retreat website.

If you have any questions, please contact the Autumn Retreat director.

Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche and the International Buddha Path Editing Committee are pleased to announce The Buddha Path 3rd Edition Editing Conference. This important gathering will commence on Friday, September 3rd and conclude on Friday, September 10th, 2010 at the Dzogchen Retreat Center USA.

The Buddha Path is a renowned practice manual by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche. This profound guidebook, recently translated into Mandarin Chinese, Russian, and Spanish, is at the heart of our daily practice and has been of immense benefit to thousands of people around the world.

We now have the important opportunity to edit the 3rd English edition of this profound text which contains all of Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen teachings of the Buddha. Drawing from our practical experiences with learning, contemplating, and meditating on the Buddha Path, our goal is to make the next edition even easier to understand, remember, use, and share with others.

Your contribution to the next edition of this sacred Dharma text is very important for present and future generations of practitioners. We sincerely request that you join us for this historic opportunity.
