The Role of Stupas, Temples, Shrines and Other Firm Supports of the Enlightened Mind

A powerful way to become aware of our interdependence and highest potential is through the use of living symbols such as stupas.  Stupas from the Museum's collection will be on view during the presentation.  Based on sacred geometry and proper placement, stupas have the power to transform individual lives and improve circumstances on a local and global scale.  Stupas generate a beneficial blessing energy through their form, intention, and stream of activity.

Singhamukha, The Lion-Headed Dakini The Activity of Reversing of Negativity

In this session of teaching, Lama Rangbar will offer the oral transmission of the condensed daily practice of the Lion-Headed Dakini, Singhamukha, along with instructions for correct and effective practice to pacify, control, and eradicate negative circumstances.

Vajrayana practitioners must employ various methods to benefit self and others along the path to complete awakening.  Although negative circumstances arise on outer, inner, and secret levels, they can be pacified, brought under control or forcefully eradicated by using the process of reversal or dokpa in Tibetan.

A Talk on Maintaining our Samayas in a Modern World

A Talk on Maintaining our Samayas in a Modern World

In this talk designed for Vajrayana practitioners, Lama Rangbar will work to clarify many of the misconceptions westerners have when developing their relationship with their Lamas or Vajrayana preceptors, in an effort to bring ease and fulfillment to the path.


As Vajrayana practitioners we often hear the word samaya used to mean vow or vows.
All vehicles of Buddhism have vows that we use as a method to cross out of confusion and gain liberation from our delusions.  In the Tantrayana, vows involve what we may perceive to be bonds with humans, and this notion has caused great complexity and often consternation for Buddhists.

The Practice of Riwo Sang Cho, “The Mountain of Purified Offerings.”
Sep
8
10:00 AM10:00

The Practice of Riwo Sang Cho, “The Mountain of Purified Offerings.”

Riwo Sang Cho is a fire offering ritual that is a powerful method for increasing prosperity, purifying obscurations, and practicing the essence of Dzogchen.  It is an incense fire offering practice found in Lhatsun Namkha Jigmed’s treasure cycle called the Rigdzin Tsog Drup, “The Precious Life Force Accomplishment of the Awareness Holders.”  This is an incredibly important practice found in almost all Tibetan lineages, and is very useful in the face of modern challenges. The daily practice can help remove obstacles to obtaining our worldly wishes, but more importantly clears away hindrances on the path of Dharma, benefitting all beings in the process.   Riwo Sang Chod issues forth from the ground of Dzogchen, and so the entire text is in fact a Dzogchen text, a gateway into the nature of our own mind.

In this event, Lama Rangbar will explain the structure, benefits and ultimate meaning of the practice, and also guide us through the practice so those attending can go forward to practice confidently on their own.
