Thank you, Lhasa. Is ETZ the same as Eastern Standard Time (EST)?

Or, maybe easier, if you are currently in that timezone, could you tell me what time it is over there now?


P.S.:

just found that out by myself:

I'd like to "join" at least one of the practice sessions, is there a way to get the text somewhere on the web? Or could somebody mail it to me?

I don't know about the sadhana, try googling Garchen Chakrasamvara in images. Blue with red consort, four dakinis in the corners, one face two arms.

Maybe the "Chakrasamvara - Drikung Kagyu Lineage" image here:
http://www.dharma-media.org/ratnashripj/thanka.html
is the one.

Garchen Rinpoche has given the Chakrasamvara Initiation in Dayton, Ohio, before. On their website you can find this picture in the context of the 2013 Chakrasamvara retreat:

(however there is no evidence that this is the very image used in the initiation).

There are also some recordings of the teachings Garchen Rinpoche has given in 2013:

To avoid a misunderstanding, I'd be happy to pay for the text at the official shop or to give a donation to Garchen Rinpoche's centers, if somebody could mail it to me.

What is the difference between Avalokiteshvara and Padmapani?
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats

There is an additional practice session Monday night, of Achi, Medicine Buddha and one other I didn't catch. Will ask tomorrow but heads up, there's more.

This is the correct image that they handed out at the center.

6:30 p.m. Eastern tonight. The Khenpo said anyone who watches the pujas, receives the blessings.

During the webcast they also anounced in the social stream that they plan to upload the teachings on vimeo.
