Roots of Mindfulness with Khenmo Konchog Nyima Drolma
HH Drikung Chetsang Rinpoche encouraged us to look to the sutras for the direct words of the Buddha in his advice for 21st Century practitioners. In the sutras we find detailed instructions on mindfulness, the key building block of all meditation and of our understanding of the fruition of mahamudra.
Khenmo Drolma will give an illustrated Dharma Talk on the foundations of mindfulness from the perspective of both the early Buddhist and Lord Jigten Sumgon’s view. The presentation will focus on enhancing our understanding of mind and practice!
No fee: Donations are welcome
If you will be attending the Saturday December 9th & Sunday December 10th retreat (click to read more), we would like to invite you to register for the weekend by Monday December 4th to help us with our planning. Thank you!
