Dzogchen is considered the highest and most direct path to realizing that the nature of one’s mind is already free and enlightened. Its approach offers immediate release from chains of thoughts and emotional patterns, allowing unconditional joy, compassion, and love to shine from within. Many individuals of the past experienced profound inner awakening through the practice of Dzogchen. Retreat teachings will be based on the lineage of the great 19th century Tibetan master Dudjom Lingpa. Talks and guided meditation will be offered throughout.

You are warmly invited to attend. This retreat is open to all with a sincere interest in Dzogchen and the teachings of Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche and Anam Thubten. We’ll gather for this retreat online via Zoom Webinar. Your full attendance is requested; recordings and delayed broadcast will not be available.

Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche is a fourth generation descendant of Dudjom Lingpa. After extensive study of Sutra, Tantra, and Dzogchen pith instructions and empowerments at Larung Gar Monastery, His Holiness Jigme Phuntsok formally requested Rinpoche to teach and preserve the Dudjom lineage. The renowned female teacher, Dakini Kunzang Wangmo, made the same request. Learn more about Rinpoche and the Abhaya Fellowship.

Anam Thubten grew up in Tibet and at an early age began to practice in the Nyingma tradition. Among his many teachers, his most formative were Lama Tsurlo, Khenpo Chopel, and Lama Garwang. He is the founder and spiritual advisor of Dharmata Foundation and teaches widely in the U.S. and abroad. His books include No Self, No Problem and the Citadel of Awareness.

Very nice. Happy to see Chakung Rinpoche starting to give more Dzogchen events. Time difference is always so harsh though but that can't be helped I guess

I got an email this morning saying the first session will go a little longer to allow for empowerment. That first session is between 4 am CET and 6 am CET. I'll have to get lots of extra sleep the coming days and go to bed early friday evening. The other sessions are more convenient starting at 7 pm CET and ending 2 am CET with a 2 hour break in the middle.

Does anyone know if the unelaborate empowerment just now theoretically allows one to do any Dudjom practice that they have received the lung and instructions for? Like for example, I have the latter two for Troma but not the empowerment since the complete Troma empowerment apparently is an in-person only thing but does the rigpai tsal dbang just now count for that purpose?

Good question. What did the translator said is the lineage of this transmission/empowerment?

I wasn't taking notes and didn't write down the name of the person who gave Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche this empowerment, but Düdjom Lingpa (1835-1904) was Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche's great great great grandfather (4th generation). Düdjom Lingpa had many children, eight sons and four daughters, ten grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren (B. Alan Wallace in Düdjom Lingpa's Visions of the Great Perfection, Vol. 1: Heart of the Great Perfection, page 16). All of his sons were great practitioners, scholars, etc. It is not clear to me through which of Düdjom Lingpa's twelve children Rinpoche is related to him. But obviously the lineage of the transmission of the empowerment and teachings we received and will receive over the weekend is very short, direct and pure as a result. Throughout his life, Düdjom Lingpa had many visionary encounters with e.g. various manifestations of Padmasambhava. On these occassions he received teachings. His autobiography has been translated as A Clear Mirror: The Visionary Autobiography of a Tibetan Master (Rangjung Yeshe Publications). The B. Alan Wallace book I mentioned above contains a short biographical sketch as well.
