Dreamlike Enlightenment: Understanding Illusion from a Dzogchen Perspective

With Tsoknyi Rinpoche

November 3 - 9, 2017

Tsoknyi Rinpoche often quotes an ancient teaching of the Buddha:  “My dreamlike form appears to dreamlike beings to show them the dreamlike path that leads to dreamlike enlightenment.”

If even enlightenment is said to be dreamlike, what is it to be fully awake, free from all illusion, yet with a heart full of compassion? Rinpoche will teach on these profound themes in this retreat from a Dzogchen perspective.

We are very fortunate that Rinpoche has specially invited Namsel Dolma (aka Khandro-la) to be with us at this retreat (if she gets a U.S. Visa in time).  She is an oracle for the Dalai Lama, healer and dharma teacher.
Pundarika is offering a limited number of scholarships for the tuition portion of this retreat. To apply for a scholarship, read the scholarship information and complete the scholarship form at this link before you register with the Garrison Institute.
Please note:  The scholarship application deadline was June 1, 2017, and has now passed.
