Self-Liberating Meditation – Advanced Retreat in Germany

With Tsoknyi Rinpoche

June 3 - 9, 2023

Patrul Rinpoche’s Pith Instructions on Nature of Mind

The great 19th Century Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche is widely respected for his realization, learnedness and wandering renunciant lifestyle. This short, powerful text presents the essence of the path of Trekchö, how to cut through to the Dzogchen view of original purity and sustain this with the meditation of being uncontrived.

Prerequisite: The prerequisite for the advanced course is having received pointing out instructions from Tsoknyi Rinpoche or another qualified Vajrayana or Dzogchen master. If you have not been to an open retreat with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, you will be asked to watch an open retreat teaching online to familiarise yourself with his way of teaching and use of language. The Registrar will provide a link once you register.
