Hi, all.Tashi delek,
I saw that Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will be giving a retreat titled "Pith Realizations of the ZZNG Masters" in Crestone, CO, in late September. I live in Colorado and was thinking of attending but I'm entirely unfamiliar with this and was just curious about the background, what sort of teaching this might be, what transmissions (if any) are given, etc.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Yes it is like Bhusuku did before mentioned.

We have the book in our foundation's library and it is a very precious book for all Bonpos.
It deals with the Bon Dzogchen Buddhas as well the Rigdzins of ZZNG (Nyengyud) and ZZKY (Kagyu).
We CAN do Guru Yoga with each of the ZZ Dzogchen Rigdzins and as an aid are there the pictures (made by Lopon Lak, he is also a very talented Thanka painter).
The pictures serve as the visualisation practice and so the connection is there with that ZZ Master in the form of Guru Yoga. Then the realisation of that Master can be taken into consideration during meditation which descend in the form of Wisdoms blessings. Guru Yoga is here the core / essential.
All in all a must to have that book.
By the way TWR is a very closed disciple of Lopon Lak.
