What a wonderful and compassionate teacher we have, I rejoice in the opportunity to be in the presence of this liberated yogin!
I hope all the Vajra brethren will be able to attend!

bump for tomorrow and onwards.

If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

Times listed are Pacific Time so if you are on the East Coast
for example, convert the time, because you are three hours ahead.
2pm in Seattle is 5pm Eastern Time (for example).


white Tara Empowerment is about to take place right now.

See the schedule for Shitro empowerment and Bardo teachings as well.
