One of the precious aspects of the Jonang lineage is the consistency in the view throughout the Sutra and Tantra teachings. Rinpoche will give a very special empowerment the following weekend on Chod, Opening the Door to the Sky Empowerment from Jetsun Taranatha. In preparation he will give a bit of insight into the practice based in Sutra and how the view aligns with Other-Emptiness.

Request
By request of many different students, Rinpoche will kindly lead a discussion and debate around the Dharma of food.
Topic
Khentrul Rinpoche always encourages us to see debates from many views and angles. The age old question on what to eat is no different. He will help walk us through all the different intentions and vantage points we may have when looking at the karma of the actions around what we consume.
Please bring your questions and your best points to this interactive event. Some of the questions that often come up and lead to lot of discussion and confusion – Are Buddhist all peaceful people eating vegetables? In Tibet some Monastery areas sell “naturally died” vs “killed” meat. What’s the difference and do the monks eat meat? If I buy meat at a supermarket am I contributing to killing? Am I violating a vow if I eat meat? What if I need to eat meat for my health, am I a failed Buddhist?

Restricted: Drolmi Kazug Practice Course

Restricted: Drolmi Kazug Practice Course

This course is by invite only.

If you attended the correct oral transmission or empowerments and received the practice package, you should already have this course on your dashboard in your learning center. If you do not please contact office@dzokden.org

This course is restricted to those who took the Empowerment or Oral Transmission in January at the Drolmi Kazug Puja or in May at the Land of Shambhala consecration and made an offering to receive the blessed item offering package. The practice can not be done without all of these conditions. It took us 6 months just to gather the correct ingredients to make the precious substances and even more for the conditions for the vases. Rinpoche specifically put together these practice packages so that serious practitioners who will do the practice have every item they need to properly do the puja.
If you attended one of the events but did not get a practice package, you can inquire at office@dzokden.org as a few are still available.
If you did get a practice package please make sure your dashboard in the learning center has this course on it. If it does not contact office@dzokden.org to let us know it is not there.

ABOUT THE 6-Week COURSE
What is real? What does really matter in life? How can we deal with the many ups and downs that we face? 

In this 6-week-course, Rinpoche will encourage us to look deeper into the very nature of our experience for developing insight into what is truly meaningful in life. Although the sheer extensiveness and profundity of the Buddhist teachings may easily overwhelm a newcomer, Rinpoche teaches it in a way that is suitable for everyone. With his simplicity and directness, he invites us to focus upon the essence of the teachings and, from that, to step by step expand our understanding further.

INTRODUCTION TO THIS COURSE
Can we live our lives without any problem whatsoever? The answer is no. Unfortunately, this is not possible. Is there then any solution for this limitation? Yes, and the solution is very surprising: it has to do with the fact that actually there is nothing ‘real’. All of what we think is ‘reality’ is not reality at all.

There is no ‘real reality’, neither for me nor for you. And yes, we all have a lot of fixations and neurosis which we think are real. Worse than that, we wrongly think we are actually very sophisticated.

There is no real reality, but we create many temporary realities. In order to get more clarity regarding those, we call them ‘relative reality’. Until we do not break our fixations and bring clarity to our minds, we are not free from anything at all. In this course we will learn how to free ourselves. It is indeed a gradual process, we need to remove our veils of obscurations layer by layer.

SUMMARY OF THE CLASSES:
1 – Schrödinger’s Cat Deceptive Appearances: why and how do things appear?
2 – The Mind Makes the Difference Attitudes, perspectives and emotions: how to make them useful?
3 – Interconnected Realities  Understanding the connection between all of our life experiences: how to manage them well? What does interdependent relationship mean?
4 – The Power of Clarity and Decision With clarity in what to rely on, we can learn to take every situation as an opportunity
5 – Body & Mind Relationship Looking in detail at the body and mind relationship: how to make our own minds much more pure and powerful, so that even our bodies rejuvenate?
6 – Death: The Greatest Magic Trick of All Time The so-called death is actually an unusual opportunity to break through our relative reality. How to understand that we actually never die and how to take it as an opportunity?

SUGGESTED TEXTS

PROGRAM FEES
We have many costs to make Khentrul Rinpoche’s teachings available to you. The platforms we use, the center to house volunteers, their food, our servers and many more things are not free. Therefore we can not make our courses free without cost. Because we have students in all areas of the world we have adjusted for the cost of living in various countries. Thank you for understanding our decisions on how we can make this accessible to our global family. If your ability to pay makes it difficult to attend this program, we will make every effort to make attendance possible. Please email chloe@dzokden.org to discuss a lower offering amount or a full scholarship. No one is turned away for lack of money.
OFFERING DANA TO RINPOCHE
