2013 Longchenpa Retreat and Ceremony

Posted on December 10, 2012 by Shipper DP | 1 Comment

"Longchenpa (1308-64) stands at the center of the Nyingma Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. His writings, in clear and luminous prose have the power to awaken us to our own innermost knowing and inspire us to act on the knowledge we already have.
This program, led by Arnaud Maitland, will include in-depth study and practice of Longchenpa´s famous text Thirty Pieces of Advice from the Heart. The daily schedule will be from 7am to 9pm and include a four-day ceremony or puja of full time chanting. In our ceremony we will join a large group of Nyingma students all over the world, commemorating the parinirvana of Longchenpa and inviting his blessings to come into the world. Includes Spanish translation."

These talks have been inspiring to me, eeilcpasly to help revive a practice which has felt in a lull as of late. I’ve been putting pressure on myself to plan my next Sesshin, but it’s been difficult to do so given my busy schedule and lack of clarity about what the future holds. I have realized that putting so much stock in Sesshin as the practice left me giving less attention to practice in everyday life. The talks on breath were a potent reminder that the practice is NOW, not to commence the next time I get to Green Gulch or Great Vow or wherever I’ll go for Sesshin next, but NOW. It’s time to practice now and give genoerous attention to what this busy and unclear life is And in that figurative exhale, that figurative letting go I can die and allow Sesshin to come and meet me when it does as the next logical action in a living, breathing practicing being Thanx, Senor.
