SCHEDULE FOR PUBLIC TALK WITH GARCHEN RINPOCHE

Wednesday, May 8th
7:00pm - 9:00pm at Gar Drolma Buddhist Center
1329 Creighton Ave
Dayton, Ohio 45420


There is no fee for the public talk.
Donations are welcome.
_______________________________________________
REGISTRATION: There are three ways to register for events.

1) PRE-REGISTER ONLINE https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=027346
2) Send a check to Gar Drolma (1329 Creighton Avenue, Dayton OH 45420)
3) You may register for events at the Temple. Please come at least 30 minutes ahead of the beginning of an event to register.

Because we are expecting a large number of people to attend these events, we hope that you can register early to facilitate our planning so that we can accommodate everyone as comfortably as possible.

FEE INFORMATION:
FULL ATTENDANCE Fee for each retreat: $140-300 sliding scale
PARTIAL ATTENDANCE Fees: $35-$75 per day sliding scale
We make every effort to make our retreats affordable for all individuals. Therefore, we present our fees as a sliding scale. The minimum fee is what we must collect in order to cover our costs. You may be able to offer a bit more. If some people pay more than the minimum, we are better able to keep the base fee low for everyone. If you would like to attend events, but need financial assistance to do so, please contact us. No person should fail to attend for lack of the requested fees. However, it is important that you call or email ahead if you need to make financial arrangements.


Preregistration is recommended for the retreats

Wow I wish I could be there for sure. I have a question relating to this topic actually. I received the Chakrasamvara empowerment in 2010 from H.E. Garchen Rinpoche. Since Rinpoche was also giving Mahamudra teachings that weekend he did not have the time to give the teachings for Chakrasamvara. I have been working with the sadhana but am really am looking for any recordings or transcripts of the teachings. I'd be glad to provide the details of the empowerment. If anyone has any info about this I would be VERY appreciate! Thanks all!

Yes, although the sound is a little "off"
check the schedule and tune in at the times that
are specified in the schedule above.

The schedule shows the times in Eastern Time USA.
So you would convert that time to your time.

For example right now this is being webcast:

2:00-5:00pm Chakrasamvara Teachings & Practice

Among the many amazing things he said, Garchen Rinpoche said that if you have received a lung, you can give that lung, and it doesn't have to be in the language you received it in. You can give it in your own language. This was in the talks today, May 5th.

Yes, it is very excellent, and generally, slowly slowly there has been some movement for Dharma over time. Ohio has Gelugpa & Nyingmapa Dharma centers in the North, Karma Kagyu in the middle & Drikung Kagyu in the South. There are also Shambhala centers, and many other kinds of Dharma; surprisingly this state which is considered by many a "Bible Belt" state, has considerable dharmic activity. At least one western Tulku I know was born in Canton Ohio, south of Cleveland, he was recognized by Kusum Lingpa Rinpoche, in addition, there are ordained Sangha whose birth place was Ohio, some of those ordained are actively teaching, so it's developing slowly, with good results, as the teachings seem to be taking root.

Just noticed last night how good it was, as a bonus I got a couple of empowerments. A Guru Rinpoche practice by Pema Lingpa and a also Vajrapani of unknown origin.
