Dear friends, we are very happy to announce that Ven. Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche – one of the seniormost Khenpos in the Nyingma tradition and one of the three Khenchen or ‘great Khenpos’ of Namdroling Monastery – will open and lead the annual Palyul Namcho Dzogchen Retreat from 1-12 September 2018 at the Palyul Retreat Center in Zusch, Germany.
The Annual European Palyul Namcho Dzogchen Retreat has been helt for 10 years. It is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced Dharma practicioners. The retreat is called “Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand” (Tib. Dzogchen Sangye Lakchang). It is held each year at the European retreat center of the Palyul tradition of Buddhism in Zusch, Germany. This authentic retreat begins with an Introductory Class and Ngondro practice, and ends with the highest Dzogchen practice.
On 8 September, Saturday, at 15:00 Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche will bestow the first Empowerment of the Three Roots – Rigdzin Dupa. “The Gathering of Vidyadharas” is the inner lama practice from the Longchen Nyingtik, the terma revelation of Jikmе Lingpa.
On 9 September, Sunday, at 15:00 Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche will bestow the second Empowerment of the Three Roots – Yumka Dechen Gyalmo. This peaceful dakini practice from the Longchen Nyingtik is a sadhana practice on Yeshe Tsogyal, the consort of Guru Rinpoche, as a wisdom dakini.
