Invitation to Join Our Weekly Public and Drub-dhe Meditation
Dzogchen Ngondro and Ngo-zhi
“Human Life, no matter how successful,
rich, famous and powerful one may think of, is completely incomplete
without taking spiritual path! As all of these are just like soap
bubbles, subject to constant bursting. When the death comes which
is ever unavoidable, one's consciousness doesn't die with the
mortal body but it continues in Bardo.
“To prepare for this crucial moment, one must practice here
and now without any delay, by taking and following a proper spiritual
path accordingly. Even if one couldn't attain enlightenment at
this stage, at least in ones next rebirth one will not fall into
the lower realms and one will have another opportunity to continue
on the path and eventually attaining enlightenment for oneself
and for the benefit of all sentient beings! Taking spiritual path
will also determine the conditions of ones next rebirth.
”The Human birth you have now is very precious and rare
in this that each one could attain Buddhahood in this body and
”Meet a Lama/Spiritual Master now, receive empowerment,
transmission and instructions and engage in the process!
”My love and prayers to you, your family, and friends!“
— Lama Khemsar Rinpoche
I am writing to you personally to invite each and every one of
you — students, family, friends — to join in the warmth
and fellowship of our meditations which take place at our local
centres in London, Wiltshire-Avebury, Wales, and Scotland.
The meditation is open to general public which will be assisted
by existing students. The first part of the meditation
focus of these evenings is on the Dzogchen Ngondro foundation
practices which employ a combination of mantra, visualization
and meditation. Whilst these are generally associated with Yungdrung
Bön or The Eternal Light Teaching (The
Ancient Native Buddhism of Tibet) and Buddhism, their essence
has Universal Application and can be adapted and utilized by anyone
— regardless of the faith or belief system one ascribes
The second part is also open to general public,
and the focus is on Dzogchen Ngo-zhi (Principal practices).
When I am in each area, I conduct the practices in person –
providing additional men-ngak/esoteric instructional commentaries
and insights as we go along. If I am not there, my students
take turns at leading the practices under the guidance of local
Umzey-prayer master. We start at 7:30 pm and finish the first
part at approximately 9:30 pm. The second part resumes without
delay and conclude by 10:15 pm. If you are late, slip in quietly
when you arrive.
These sessions are FREE of charge; however, if you wish to
make donations, they are always most welcome and are used to
help with the rent etc. You can bring offerings such as flowers,
incense, candles, food, etc. and dedicate them for the benefit
of yourself, your family / friends, etc. — this being
a positive karmic act.
Note: Attending both sessions is essential & beneficial
for Drub-Dra students.
