Great News. Thanks for that.

Is Rinpoche also visiting Belgium this year? I think Patrul Rinpoche (the one living in Belgium) invited him.

Hi to all

Probably this is a stupid question, but anyway..
If someone will participate at this retreat, it will be capable to practice after this empowerments?

Because, I know that, if you want to practice, you "need" all this 3:
a) the empowerment wang)
b) a reading of the text by an authorized holder of the practice ( lung)
c) instruction on how to perform the practice or rituals (tri).

Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul will give all this 3 in Finland?

Thanks!

The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

I'm considering of joining this series of teachings as well. I just don't understand what the content exactly is. The info at the website (the text is full of superlatives and adjectives but no info what the seminar is actually about) and the organizer isn't helpful (I was answered that such dharma-questions can not be answered via email). I do get what an empowerment is but would like to know a bit more in detail what the content is without needing to buy a book. Am I missing something or is it common to have so little of (common sense) information in cases such like this?

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

Thank you for that. As I do not have much knowledge in the Tibetan tradition a few more questions:

So this weeklong seminar is about "transmissions of spiritual power" or empowerments? Are people attending going to learn some practices/techniques? Why does it take 7 days for only empowerments (if my understanding of what an empowerment is is correct)?

Just got an email that the retreat was cancelled due to Rinpoche's health.

Hope Rinpoche will be better soon and wait with passing into the pure land.
