The Pith Realizations of the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü Masters
by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, September 23-26, 2010

We are pleased to announce that Tenzin Wangyal Ripoche has graciously agreed to teach from the Pith Realizations of the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü Masters for the next three years, beginning in 2010. The Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü (Oral Transmission from Zhang Zhung) is the oldest and most important dzogchen text in the Bon-Buddhist tradition. All of the masters who are described in this text achieved the rainbow body, where they dissolved into light at the end of their life, signifying the highest level of realization.

Of the vast number of profound teachings of the Bon-Buddhist tradition, dzogchen is the highest, and this series of teachings contains some of the most subtle explanations within the dzogchen tradition. The Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü was traditionally very closely held, and passed from only one master to one disciple for 25 generations. As each of of the masters approached the end of his life, his disciple would ask for him to relate a brief biography and the essence of his lifetime of practice and realization. The result is a series of poetic pith teachings that point out the subtlest of all realizations.

We are fortunate to have Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche to explain these rare essential teachings, for he has a special gift to make teachings clear and understandable, and relate them to our everyday lives. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche began studying the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyü with his master Lopon Sanghe Tenzin when he was only a boy, and has continued to make them a central focus of his practice and teachings in the West.
