Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche have very kindly and most generously accepted our request, to continue the instructions of one of the very advanced and reputed cycles of Dzogchen practice, Dzogrim Bardo Druggi Thrijig, which belongs to ‘the hidden treasure’ – the Terma called Karling Zhithro, also known as the peaceful and wrathful (deities). This was found in Tibet in the 14th century by the great treasure finder Tertön Karma LIngpa. This cycle contains the practice of completion for the six Bardos or intermediate states.
Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche has already been giving the instructions and transmission for the special ‘Nondro’, which is the traditional preparation for this practise, and last year Rinpoche was giving instructions on ‘The Bardo of this life’ (Tjenä Bardo) and ‘The Bardo of Meditative concentration’ (Samten Bardo).
This year Rinpoche will give instructions in the tibetan dream practice, which belongs to ‘The Bardo of dreams’ (Milam Bardo). This is wonderful practice and opportunity, to take sleep and dreams of the night in to an essential part of your Buddhist practice.
