FINDING JOY IN OUR SAMSARIC WORLD
A retreat by Tana Dungsey Rinpoche

We often cannot control the world around us, but we can tame and open our minds to find wisdom and joy in these rich and difficult times. During this retreat, Tana Rinpoche will teach how to enhance basic meditation techniques, and from there, how to upgrade our meditation practices to apply the profound insights of the Mahamudra teachings. Clayton Ingerson will provide translation support.

At a very young age, Tana Dungsey Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, as a tulku, the reincarnation of the great master, Dolpopa. Rinpoche received from His Holiness, the name Karma Ngawang Chokyi Wangchuk Palsangpo. Starting as a child, Rinpoche trained with many renowned teachers. In 2014, he completed a Tibetan-style 3-year retreat, with His Holiness Tai Situ Rinpoche acting as retreat master. Tana Rinpoche is the abbot of the Tana Monastery in Kollegal, southern India. Rinpoche presently divides his time between teaching in Asia and teaching in Colorado, where he has a home.
Tana Rinpoche’s gentle wisdom teachings guide students in the practice of meditation and into a deeper experience of their minds. For established students, his insight steers and develops the necessary awareness central to a spiritual path. Advanced students are often struck by how simply Rinpoche conveys profound spiritual concepts. Rinpoche invites students of all ages and backgrounds to relax into their own nature.
The connection between Tana Rinpoche and Gesar of Ling may be of special interest to those familiar with the Shambhala teachings. In the 12th Century*, the Gesar of Ling clan gave their Gesar texts and his magical weapons to Tana Monastery for safe-keeping. This cemented a long-standing connection between the Tana Yelpa lineage and Gesar of Ling. Sangye Yelpa, the primary lama for the Ling clan, and the originator of the Tana Yelpa Kagyu lineage**, also established the Tana Monastery. The Tana Monastery, in Kham, Tibet, still houses many artifacts once owned by King Gesar and his generals.
