We will use the seminal text by Jigme Lingpa, Treasury of Precious Qualities, written in the 18th century as a key to all the Buddhist teachings of scripture and realization.

Year One  – Foundational Buddhist Teachings

July 1st – 31st

This year the shedra is open to all students as we begin our exploration of the Buddhist path according to the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. In the sacred ancient land of India the Buddha turned the wheel of the dharma (the Buddhist teachings) bringing inconceivable benefit for human beings. After attaining the final result of enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya India, the Buddha began his teachings on the theory and methods of how each individual could achieve the same realization that he had achieved. This year we will explore the theory of karma, impermanence, the four noble truths and the 12 links of interdependent origination as well many additional topics on the Buddhist path. These are the precious foundational teachings of Buddhism which one will use throughout the entire path. This immersive month is designed for people new to Buddhism and more seasoned students alike who wish to deepen their understanding.

Year Two Vajrayana 

July 1st – 31st

Year one of our two year shedra program on the Vajrayana covered five of the six classes of tantra. This year we will continue with the Ati Yoga or Dzogchen teachings and complete the tantric teachings. Sang-Ngag Rinpoche will begin our summer program with relevant empowerments and teachings; thereafter the shedra will be taught by Khen Rinpoche and Jetsunma. This year in addition to elucidating the meanings of the concluding section of the Treasury of Precious Qualities, we will be offering the complete transmission and teachings on the Chöying Dzö, Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena by Longchenpa. This program is restricted and will only be open to those who attended the Vajrayana year one last summer.
