Establishing the Practice Lineage in the Temple

Tuesday 9 July to Friday 12 July

Join us in establishing the practices in the new Temple at Dzogchen Beara!

Beginning on Chökhor Düchen (July 9th) we will celebrate the “Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma” which feels especially appropriate and auspicious.

Chökhor Düchen “Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma” | Tuesday July 9

Chökhor Düchen is one of the four major Buddhist holidays. It occurs on the fourth day of the sixth Tibetan lunar month. For seven weeks after his enlightenment, Buddha did not teach. Finally, encouraged by Indra and Brahma, he turned the Wheel of Dharma for the first time, at Sarnath, by teaching the ‘Four Noble Truths’.

Practices  | Wednesday 10 – Friday 12 July

From the 9th to the 12th of July we will begin with the main Rigpa practices, establishing our firm aspiration to continue to hold the Longchen Nyingtik, Terton Sogyal and other lineages with which we have been entrusted in the New Dzogchen Beara Temple
