This is a very rare opportunity to undertake the Rushen retreat with Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s guidance. Rinpoche is a Dzogchen (Great Perfection) master, who was trained by the incomparable Dudjom Rinpoche. In addition, his main teachers have been Chatral Rinpoche, Lama Sherab Dorje Rinpoche, and Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche.
Khorde Rushen is the special preliminary practice for Dzogchen, the Great Perfection. Traditionally the only gateway for entering the profound path of Dzogchen, Rushen fully prepares us for practicing the path of complete liberation. At the heart of its instructions is the key to differentiating between samsara and nirvana. Like extracting pure butter from milk, we can learn to extract the essence of nirvana from the gross phenomena of samsara. By completing the practice of Rushen, the seed that is the cause for rebirth is destroyed and the doors to the Six Realms of Beings are sealed forever.
