[Dharma December] A Daylong Meditation Retreat Based on the Four Dharmas of Longchenpa

With Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche

December 31, 2017

The Great Dzogchen Master Longchenpa’s Version of The Four Precious Lines of Dharma:

A Daylong Meditation Retreat to Prepare Mentally, Emotionally, and Spiritually for 2018

Join us to prepare to start 2018 with this special daylong retreat. The entire spiritual path, from the beginning stage of an ordinary person all the way through to complete enlightenment, is described in these four precious lines. The first line provides a description of how to turn one’s mind toward the spiritual path. The second line illustrates how to ensure that one’s spiritual practice follows the right path. The third describes how the spiritual path can liberate one from one’s own distortions and negative emotions. The fourth and final line illustrates how all experiences and distorted states of mind can arise as enlightened awareness.

Local meditation master and author of Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to Unconditional Happiness Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche is leading this daylong retreat on Sunday, December 31st from 10am – 4pm in San Rafael, CA as a part of our “Dharma December” schedule of events.
