In this retreat Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche taught on a text by Dodrupchen Jikme Tenpe Nyima, a Nyingma master with a strong connection to Dzogchen Monastery. The teaching, Transforming Suffering and Happiness, presents a profound, yet easily accessible approach to transforming suffering and happiness from obstructions to aids on the path to enlightenment. This teaching is simply breathtaking in all respects. The text provides a method for working with our habitual patterns of relating to suffering that is easy to understand, yet simultaneously mind-altering even for long-time practitioners. Jikme Tenpe Nyima’s approach, which is based on teachings by Shantideva, is applicable to all forms of suffering, from minor annoyances to life threatening illness and financial disaster. Rinpoche’s commentary transports this teaching directly into our mind, our world, and our experience with brilliance and humor. Student questions were entertained during a meeting with Lama Rabten (Director of Nalandabodhi Vancouver) and Nalandabodhi teachers Tyler Dewar, Mark Power, and Amita Gupta. Much of the teaching was in English. When Rinpoche taught in Tibetan, translation was provided by Tyler Dewar. Four talks and one Q&A session.

  • MP3CD Recordings
  • MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have “MP3” or “MP3-WMA” clearly marked on the front of it. The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
