Suraj: http://fpmt.org/lama-zopa-rinpoche-news-and-advice/lama-zopa-rinpoche-news/lama-zopa-rinpoche-advises-urgent-practices-for-pacifying-an-earthquake-in-california/ “Lama Zopa Rinpoche has been bringing it up many, many times and feels that this is extremely important: it is inevitable an earthquake will happen in California and according to Rinpoche it seems next year is quite possible. Rinpoche has checked and below are some things that need to happen as soon as possible,” Ven. Roger Kunsang wrote in an email that went out to FPMT centers, projects and services in California in early November. “The below needs to be completed by February 2016,” he wrote: 1,800,000 recitations of the long Kshitigarbha mantra done as part of a Kshitigarbha practice. Taking the Eight Mahayana precepts 300 times. Performing the extensive Medicine Buddha puja – ongoing. Reading of the Tengyur four times – to be done at Sera Je Monastery. “We need to accumulate 163,099 mantras weekly – 23,300 daily – by January 31 in order to meet the goal,” said Ven. Tenzin Tsomo at Land of Medicine Buddha. By Tuesday, November 17, about 8,200 long Kshitigarbha mantras have been accumulated. report Kshitigarbha Mantra Recitation to http://www.pacifyearthquakes.org/mantra-recitations/ ======================================== Motivation for the Practice Please motivate at the beginning that your Kshitigarbha practice is not just for the pacification of the earthquake but to free all sentient beings from oceans of samsaric suffering, to bring the numberless sentient beings from each realm to full enlightenment. To do this, you need to achieve enlightenment. Therefore you need to purify negative karma and especially the two obscurations and collect extensive merits, in order to have all the realizations on the path to enlightenment. Therefore you are going to do the practice and do it not only for the earthquakes in California and Nepal but for all earthquakes in the world. Suggestions on how to start the practice: By number: What works for quite a few people is to start with 3 recitations per day. From the numbers reported since Nov 8, we see an increase in the number recited after about 7-10 days, from 3 mantras a day to up 14 or 21, and up to 54 or more! By time: Try starting with five minutes of mantra recitation and build it up to 15 minutes. Maintain at 15 minutes for a while until you are able to recite about 21 mantras. Then increase the recitation time if you wish. You can also play the audio recording of mantra, chant along and include those mantras in the count. There are recordings of Yangsi Rinpoche, Ven Steve and Ven Drimay leading group practices at Land of Medicine Buddha - below. If you want to memorise the mantra, we advise you not to right from the start! It tends to happen quite naturally with lots of recitation over time, and it is certainly easier to memorise it when you are familiar. Just do what you can manage and enjoy the practice! Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave a nice visualisation to go along with the mantra recitation. Notes on the mantra recitation: Mantras should be recited. It can't be just reading with your eyes or mind. The mouth, lips, and tongue need to be moving like they would when reciting out loud. It is sadi that mantra recitation should be loud enough for you to hear but not so loud that others can hear. Generally in group practice, we have tended to whisper. It is more important to do it slowly and properly, than fast and make mistakes. Practice materials Please find below some materials that will be useful for this practice: https://sites.google.com/a/medicinebuddha.org/pacify-earthquakes/home

Suraj: Sakya temple of Seattle: http://www.sakya.org/specialevents/901-amitayus-hayagriva2.html Amitayus-Hayagriva Tangtong Gyalpo Initiation By H.E.

Asanga Rinpoche will bestow the Amitayus-Hayagriva Initiation. The practice of Amitayus, the Buddha of Boundless Life and Wisdom, is a meditative yoga for a prolonged and meaningful life, transcending sickness, disease and untimely death. Hayagriva represents protection. This fierce protector is a terrifying form of Noble Chenrezi (Sanskrit - Avalokitshvara). Tang Tong Gyalpo is a legendary Buddhist master reputed to have an incredible lifespan of 125 years. Believed to be Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche) appearing in the world to benefit living beings, Tang Tong Gyalpo constructed 58 iron suspension bridges, 60 wooden bridges, 118 ferries, 111 stupa monuments, countless temples and monasteries, and is credited for the creation of Tibetan opera. According to Tibetan Buddhist tradition, it is believed that putting Tang Tong Gyalpo’s picture over a door or window serves as an Earthquake Protection Amulet. His Eminence Khondung Asanga Vajra Sakya is the son of H.E. Khöndung Ani Vajra Sakya Rinpoche, the second son of the Phuntsok Phodrang family and Dagmo Chimey la. He is also the grandson of H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche and therefore a direct descendent of the unbroken Khon lineage which dates back to 1073. Asanga Vajra Rinpoche is also the grandson of H.E. Garje Khamtul Rinpoche, a highly realized and accomplished Nyingmapa master on his mother’s side. His Eminence Khöndung Asanga Vajra Sakya Rinpoche was born on May 1st, 1999 in Seattle Washington. In April of 2005, at the age of five and in accordance with his wish, Asanga Vajra Rinpoche left the comforts of home and family in Seattle, Washington to begin his new life to study and train at the Tharlam Monastery in Boudhanath, Nepal. In 2007, he received the Lamdre Tsogshay teaching from his paternal grandfather, H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. The following year, Asanga Rinpoche received the Lamdre Lobshey teachings from his paternal granduncle H.H. Sakya Trizin Rinpoche. He has also received many other very important empowerments, teachings and religious instructions from other great masters such as H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.E. Chögye Trichen, H.E. Khenchen Appey Rinpoche, H.E. Luding Khenchen as well as from his maternal grandfather H.E. Khamtul Rinpoche. In 2011, Asanga Rinpoche successfully passed his examination on the Vajrakilaya puja and rituals with a perfect score and was also the youngest lineage holder in exile to have successfully undertaken the rigorous preparation and examination.

Suraj: Garchen Buddhist Institute , AZ YAMANTAKA DRUPCHEN JANUARY 31 - FEBRUARY 8 https://garchen.net/event/yamantaka-drupchen/ In the past in Tibet this drubchen was only open to those who had taken vows of ordination and who had completed the common preliminary practices as well as the particular preliminary practices of Yamantaka. It is thus asked that those who participate prepare by accumulating refuge and Vajrasattva mantras, taking refuge and purifying one’s mindstream as much as possible prior to the retreat. One of the main prerequisites for participating in the Yamantaka Drubchen is to have accumulated 100,000 Peaceful Manjushri mantras (OM WAM GI SHWARI MUM). If you have already done this accumulation for a prior Yamantaka Drubchen, it is not necessary to do it again. If you have not done this accumulation, Rinpoche asks that you complete it before the drubchen starts. If you are unable to accomplish this, Rinpoche asks that you accumulate as many of the mantras prior to the start as possible, but then must accumulate 200,000 mantras no later than one year from the date the drubchen ends. The fruition of the Yamantaka drubchen is not attained unless the Manjushri accumulation is completed as Rinpoche indicates.

Чой: Интересное прочтение мантры (OM WAM GI SHWARI MUM). А тибетское написание можно привести, а то сомнительно, что транскрибировали правильно. Обычно в садханах Манджушри мантра имеет такой вид: ཨོཾ་ཝཱ་གི་ཤྭ་རི་མུྃ༔ ОМ ВАГИШВАРИ МУМ

Форест: Интересно, а на западе передают дзогрим, например янтры, связанные с Тантрой Чакрасамвары?

Suraj: Форест пишет: Интересно, а на западе передают дзогрим, например янтры, связанные с Тантрой Чакрасамвары? Я не слашал про существование такого. Трул кхор из ЛамДре (саьяпинская Хеваджра, линия устной передачи),- это передают. Передают различные нингмапинские и бонские трукхоры, медицинский нейджанг (на оснве медицинских тантр и калачакры). я проходил обучение по 4-ём системам; 2 дзогценовские и 2 танртические НО они все похожи по сути, - кумбхака с различные простыми движениями, самомосажем, бандхами. Всё разбито пo комплексам и описано, что противодействует каким прпятствиям, дисболансам и т.п. На самом деле большинство систем рекоммендуют практиковать несколько упражнений регулярно и остальны, после освоения, для преодаления конретных проблем. Есть конечно сложные "акробатические" стили трул-кхоров (вроде прыжков на попу из положения стоя, завязываясь в воздухе в лотос), - но такому на "Западе" не учат. Я расспрашивал, - тибетские мастера отбирают для таких трул-кхоров молодых гибких ребят, которые потом передают эти системы таким же "акробатам". ================= Зогрим со знаками передают обычно в рамках ретритов (недельных или месячных). Самые популярные, - это нигмапинсйкие термы, Ваджраиогини Наропы, Хеваджра, Гухьясамаджа. Бывает и более редкая экзотика, но она редко широко рекламируется и даётся ламами активу своей организации в небольших ретритах. Ну и те, кто подписываются на 3-ёх летние ретриты в США, те оычно получают по крайней мере тумо Ваджраварахи или "6 иог Наропы", тумо из "Нам Чо", "Лонгчен Нинтик"или "Дуджём терсар".

Suraj: Evam Choden, Berkley, CA lama Kunga This Sunday, January 24th, 2016, Ven. Lama Kunga Rinpoche will kindly bestow the Empowerment of Chenresig with Mahamudra at EC at 1 p.m. The Chenresig with Mahamudra practice was composed by Ngorchen Khonchog Lhundrup (1497 - 1557), who was the tenth abbot of Ngor Ewam Choden Monastery. This inspiring text may be simple to understand, yet it is extremely profound, as it points us to our most compassionate and luminous potential. It has a special connection with Lama Kunga Rinpoche and the EC Center because it is a practice that originated with one of the great lamas of Ngor Monastery. The Chenresig with Mahamudra initiation allows one to practice Mahamudra in the context of a Chenresig sadhana. Rinpoche has endorsed a monthly practice that will be done at Ewam Choden with anyone who has received this particular Empowerment. A practice text of the Sadhana on great Compassion and Mahamudra will be available at the initiation. This is an unprecedented chance to deepen your practice of Chenresig with an advanced meditation technique. It is a rare opportunity and not to be missed.

Suraj: http://gyalshen.org/heartdrops-of-kuntuzangpo-4-sections-with-chaphur-rinpoche/ HeartDrops of KuntuZangpo: 4 sections With Chaphur Rinpoche Gyalshen Institute HeartDrops of KuntuZangpo, Part II: Trekchod June 25 & 26, 2016 HeartDrops of KuntuZangpo, Part II: Trekchod June 25 & 26, 2016 50777 This weekend begins the teaching of Shardza Rinpoche’s Heart Drops of Dharmakaya with the Rushan teachings. These teachings have three divisions: the body, speech, and mind. After reviewing Shardza Rinpoche’s writings Chaphur Rinpoche has chosen to focus on the mind division as these teachings best prepare students for teachings on thegchod or cutting through to the nature of mind. As Lopon Tenzin Namdak has said: It is not possible to identify or know what students have not already encountered in meditation. In order to be introduced to your mind nature, you must have already encountered it in meditation. This weekend on the mind-rushan teachings of the Heartdrops of Dharmakaya will be very practice oriented. On the first day we will investigate in meditation the nature of our mind using Shardza’s nine-fold approach for identifying the nature of mind. On the second day students will investigate the arising, abiding, and movement of mind. Students will have the opportunity to share the results of their meditation with Rinpoche to receive guidance on identifying the nature of their mind. Heart Drops of Dharmakaya, Part I: Rushan February 27 & 28, 2016 HeartDrops of KuntuZangpo, Part II: Trekchod June 25 & 26, 2016 HeartDrops of KuntuZangpo, Part III: Thogal August 27 & 28, 2016 HeartDrops of KuntuZangpo, Part IV: Bardo October 29 & 30, 2016 More information regarding each section will be posted soon.

Suraj: http://www.soriginstitute.org/store#!/~/category/id=2262156&offset=0&sort=nameAsc Dr. Nida's July 2016 Portland, Oregon July 9–10: Dream Studies July 11–12: Yuthok Nyingthig Ati Yoga Sign In July 11–12, 2016 — Yuthok Nyingthig Ati Yoga | Portland Registration for this course will be available soon. Yuthok Nyingthig Ati Yoga Monday–Tuesday, July 11–12 Portland, Oregon Ati Yoga, also known as Dzogchen, is a meditation technique to directly reveal the ultimate nature of our mind. It is most commonly translated as ‘Great Perfection’ or 'Great Completeness' since it is a practice which completely ends samsara. In the Yuthok Nyingthig cycle of spiritual teachings the chapter on Ati Yoga is called ‘The Self-Liberation of Samsara-Nirvana’. It is the secret path of Trekchö and Tögel for realizing the final rainbow body, the expression of the complete transformation and control over the elements of matter, energy, and mind. 2016, the year of the Fire Monkey, is a most powerful spiritual year — according to Padmasambhava’s prophecy, it is the year of his emanation on this planet, a time when his energies are particularly strong and prevalent. In honor of this auspicious year, Dr. Nida is offering these rare and profound teachings for the first time in the United States. In preparation, please read Shabkar’s ‘The Flight of the Garuda,’ translated by Keith Dowman.
