2024 Commentary on Jetsun Taranatha’s Zhentong Nyingpo with Khentrul Rinpoche

This is a FREE event and only available ONLINE.

In honor of Jetsun Taranatha’s Parinirvana, Khentrul Rinpoche will begin to give a commentary on one of Taranatha’s most precious texts, the Zhentong Nyingpo (The Essence of Zhentong). The commentary will then continue over the next several weekends and be accessible publicly in the learning center to those who sign up for free access.

Jetsun Taranatha is one of the most important Joanng lineage masters. He is revered not just by the Jonang but by my many lineages as he studied them in depth along with the Indian tantric systems. He was particularly well known for understanding the view of each system in an undistorted way from the philosophical perspective of that system. Most people, as they learn aspects of different philosophies, mix an underlying bias or view into their understanding of the system in which they either believe the most or are the most familiar. He did not do this and could argue from the perspective of the view he was holding.

The Zhentong Nyingpo is a very special text that explains the Zhentong (emptiness of other) view of the great middle way in relationship to other spiritual systems. This is an opportunity to examine and learn how the Zhentong view is similar and different from that of other views. Of course, for those who understand and believe the Buddhist perspective, this text shows the arguments of how the philosophical system of Zhentong is superior in relation to Rangtong (emptiness of self) and also other spiritual systems. This establishes Zhentong as the completion Dharma.

You don’t necessarily have to believe in the superiority of Zhentong to listen to and benefit from understanding this text. You can look at the text as a learning opportunity to understand the strengths, weaknesses, differences, and essence of various systems. This creates a philosophical mental map of how spiritual systems are in relation to each other.

This is a huge subject that Jetsun Taranatha has taken and compared in such a small text. Hence this text is considered to be the essence (nyingpo).

Commentaries are often hard for translators to translate in real-time if their root text has not been translated to their language. Therefore this event is scheduled to be in Engish, with translations only available at the discretion of the translation groups.

Speaker

  • Khentrul Rinpoche
    Khentrul Rinpoche
    Maestro Jonang Kalachakra

    Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö è il fondatore e direttore spirituale di Dzokden. Rinpoche è l’autore di Unveiling Your Sacred Truth, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life e The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.

    Rinpoche trascorse i primi 20 anni della sua vita allevando yak e cantando mantra sugli altopiani del Tibet. Ispirato dai bodhisattva, lasciò la sua famiglia per studiare in una varietà di monasteri sotto la guida di oltre venticinque maestri di tutte le tradizionibuddiste tibetane. Grazie al suo approccio non settario, si guadagnò il titolo di MaestroRimé (imparziale) e fu identificato come la reincarnazione del famoso Maestro Kalachakra Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. Pur avendo sviluppato un profondo rispetto per tutte le autentiche tradizioni spirituali, per il suo percorso personale, ha scelto di concentrarsi sulla tradizione Jonang/Shambala. Gli insegnamenti del Kalachakra (ruota del tempo) contengono metodi profondi per armonizzare il nostro ambiente esterno con il mondo interiore del corpo e della mente, portando infine alla realizzazione dell’Età dell’Oro della pace e dell’armonia (Dzokden).
