Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche at Pema Osel Ling

We are extraordinarily grateful that Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche will visit Pema Osel Ling this April 19-20 to teach, at the request of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, on Garab Dorje's Three Words that Strike the Vital Point.
Garab Dorje, the first human lineage-holder of the Dzogchen Great Perfection teachings -- he had received the Dzogchen transmissions directly from Vajrasattva and Vajrapani -- gave his final testament to his chief disciple Manjushrimitra after his parinirvana. Known as the Three Words that Strike the Vital Point (Tsik Sum Né Dek), it synthesizes the Great Perfection’s view, meditation and action in three pith instructions:
*One is introduced directly to one's true nature
*One attains certainty about this natural state
*One continues with confidence in liberation
To hear the Dzogchen teachings has the ability to bring liberation in this single body, in this single life. That is why they are so special. We hope you are able to join us for this teaching with Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche, who is a Dzogchen master. We are also very fortunate that Sangye Khandro will translate.
The schedule is confirmed as follows:
Friday, April 19 6:30-8:30 PM
Saturday, April 20 11:00 – 1:00 PM and 3:00 – 5:00 PM
