Restricted Teaching: Viewing and listening to these recordings is restricted to members of Nalandabodhi who are formal students of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, or individuals who have his direct permission.
Coast Student Retreat: With
characteristic humor and insight, Rinpoche emphasizes the importance of
bringing present awareness, compassion, wisdom, and contentment to every moment
of our lives, even when our lives are filled with confusion and challenges. In
these talks Rinpoche encourages us to make full use of the many practices we
have learned and then take what we have learned during formal practice into our
everyday lives. Rinpoche points out three approaches to awakening that are
available only in the post-meditation context, not in the meditative state. In
post-meditation, the present moment of insatiable desire provides the
opportunity to cultivate contentment. Present awareness also allows us to
notice and transform self-obsession into panoramic awareness of the presence and
needs of others. Finally, present awareness in post-meditation provides
unlimited opportunities to see the ultimate nature of rising emotions. In Talk
Three, Rinpoche entertains numerous questions. In Talk Four, Rinpoche presents
four actions (samgraha) that
bodhisattvas adopt in order to bring benefit and awakening to others. In the
final session, Acharya Lhakpa and Mitra Mark Power speak about self-cherishing
and lead students through a practice of listening.
