Karmapa teaching Tsongkhapa's Lamrim Nov. 1-2, 2013

Postby Palzang Jangchub » Thu Oct 31, 2013 8:48 pm

His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa (Ogyen Trinley Dorjé) will be teaching on Jé Tsongkhapa's Three Principal Aspects of the Path starting tomorrow in India.

Each day will have 2 sessions of teachings, and on Nov 2nd he will also be conferring Amitabha empowerment.

We are fortunate that these teachings are being streamed live via the skillful means of webcast, and thus are available to all who have an internet connection and the desire to attend (just as the Kagyu Mönlam has been for the last several years)!

The webcast can be viewed here:

All times given are in India Standard Time (IST), but there is a link to show more time zones and thereby check when it will be happening for you.

If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

-Milarepa

I recall that the Karmapa has indicated you can't receive "empowerments" (Jenangs, Wangkurs, JinBebs, or Lungs I think as well....) via WebCast. Teachings, yes........but Vajrayana transmission, no.


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")

No idea, to be honest. It's mentioned on the webcast background pic, so it's possible. But from what I've seen with certain Karma Kamtsang lamas they tend to be strict about empowerment and transmissions (i.e. not being able to receive them via webcast). However, Drikung lamas are a different story. Garchen Rinpoche is quite open with giving wang & lung if your aspiration is pure. Guess we'll have to wait and see...

Looks like there are technical difficulties with the webcast, folks. Guess our collective karma is ripening as loss of internet on the Indian side of the equation.

:techproblem:

Please accumulate the Karkhyen mantra and be patient. The webcast team is trying to do all they can. If nothing else, the teachings are being recorded and will be uploaded to YouTube later. I'll make sure to post the links to them here for those unable to wait (as well as those unable to attend in the first place).

Here's the first of the YouTube videos, which was posted by the Tsurphu Labrang (Gyalwang Karmapa's office) to his official YouTube. It's an hour and twenty minutes long, and likely includes only the first session. There may or may not be HD recordings posted later under a different heading. For now, enjoy!
