10 Day Retreat Recorded at Ratna Ling Retreat Center led by Arnaud Maitland with Spanish Translation
Longchenpa is widely considered the most important explicator of the Dzogchen teachings of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. His writings and teachings, as well as the example of his life, have had an immense impact on Dharma practitioners for over seven centuries.
Longchenpa’s teaching illustrate that all elements of conventional experience are building blocks of wisdom: thoughts, concepts, emotions, senses, and feelings. Those who take a religious view toward this life may look for God: those who take a philosophical view may look for truth. Still others may look for love. Whatever they look for – whatever you look for – that is Longchenpa.
By opening our hearts to Longchenpa, we receive his blessings, for he embraces us as we are. He unites knowledge, practice, and blessings into a complete teaching and a complete path.
