Ewam Shedra Summer Online Program 2021

Mipham’s Beacon of Certainty

Taught by Namchag Khen Rinpoche Ngawang Gelek

July 12-18, 2021

9am-12pm and 2pm-4pm (the afternoon session may run over if there are many questions)-Mountain Time

Registration open.

Sliding Scale – $150-$250

A commentary composed by the 19th century scholar Mipham Rinpoche. It is structured around seven questions including such practical issues of everyday practice as “Should we do analytical meditation or settling meditation?” Because of its thoroughness in addressing the foundations of the Nyingma tradition, from Madhyamika philosophy to the view of Dzogchen, it is a key text studied in many Nyingma shedras. The title, The Beacon of Certainty, refers to the fact that unwavering certainty in the view of the indivisible union of appearance and emptiness is a shining beacon that illuminates the spiritual path. The text can be considered as a bridge between sutra and tantra. This class with the extensive and precise commentary by Namchag Khen Rinpoche is open to students who have received Buddhist Refuge Vows.

The Lion’s Roar: The Condensed Essential Points of the Buddha Nature by Jamgon Mipham

Taught by Jetsunma Jamyang Yeshe Palmo

July 19-23
Monday – Friday
6:30-7:30pm Mountain Time
Registration open.
Sliding Scale – $100 – $200

The Lion’s Roar is a treatise on buddha nature written by Mipham Rinpoche. The teaching of the Buddha hinges around the one point that sentient beings have within them the potential to become a buddha. If they did not possess that potential, it would not be possible for them to become buddhas and the rest of the Buddhist teaching would be an interesting but useless philosophy. The very learned Nyingma teacher Jamgon Mipham gave a teaching that clearly showed this ultimate non-dual buddha nature. It was recorded and published by his students in a text called The Lion’s Roar: The Condensed Essential Points of the Buddha Nature which forms the basis of this book. Jetsunma will give the extensive commentary and explanations that this text warrants. Open to all students.
