Aug. 30th – Sept. 1st Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche will be offering the profound GongChik Retreat at DKC. Friday Aug. 30th 7p – 8:30pm, Sat. Aug. 31st 10am – 5pm, Sun 10am – noon, and then Sun 2pm – 5pm Milarepa Empowerment and Tsok Offering. GongChik is a set of sacred and precious teachings given by Lord Jigten Sumgön on Buddha's realization of the ultimate reality. It describes the laws of the universe, the law of causality based on love and compassion, Nagarjuna's doctrine of interdependent origination, and clear moral ethics which guard one's mind from confusion and illusion. GongChik is a profound step-by-step instruction to Enlightenment. Thus, we are indeed fortunate to receive such profound and sacred teachings. On Sunday we will have the good fortune of recieving the empowerment of Milarepa the great enlightened yogi.
