Nyingtig Yabzhi (Wang, Lung & Tri) with Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche - November 2 - 11, 2018 in Santa Fe 


A multiyear path of meditation and study on the whole of Longchenpa's cycles with an emphasis on Dzogchen, in the lineage and transmission of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. This retreat will begin with the Nyingtig Yabzhi empowerments, along with some oral transmission, and an explanation beginning this year with Semnyi Ngalso. 

The intention for these teachings is to emphasize the actual instructions and commentaries on the Nyingtig Yabzhi.  One of these explanations (tri yig) will be the extremely rare teaching of the "Stainless Oral Instructions" (Drimey Shalung) by Jamgon Kongtrul which Tulku Sang-ngag received directly from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.  

To read Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpopche's Dharma Announcement for these empowerments, please visit our website.
