Dzogchen Series taught by Losang Samten

December 2, 9, and 16: 10 am to 1 pm.

Lama Losang Samten will be holding a special series on the practice of Dzogchen.  His teachings will be following the 8th century text The Nine Nails of Shri Singha.

Dzogchen practice dates back to the 8th century in teachings by Guru Padmasambhava, both direct (kama) and hidden (terma) which were intended to be found at a later time when they could be better understood by the then-unsophisticated Tibetans.  Unlike other types of meditation it dispenses with concepts, analytical reasoning, judgments, emotions, accepting or rejecting, culture, religion, hope, fear, guilt, regret, thinking, trying, effort, and any other activities of the mind.  Rather, the practitioner is directed to look at the source of all of these, the mind, to see that all of our conceptual, emotional, thoughts, and interpretations of events are self-created, and have no intrinsic reality. 

The suggested donation for this series is $125 ($100 members) for all three classes or $50 (40) per class.

Scholarships are available.
