Samye Institute is overjoyed to announce that Phakchok Rinpoche will visit Malaysia for his first public teachings in Asia since leaving his retreat! Rinpoche will visit Penang, Ipoh, and Kuala Lumpur to preside over pujas and confer precious teachings to the Malaysian sangha.
From October 22nd to October 24th, Rinpoche will lead a Mahamudra retreat with the Malaysian Sangha. This event will be live-streamed, with live translation into Vietnamese and Chinese. Other languages are to be confirmed.
Phakchok Rinpoche will teach on The Amrita of the Essential Accomplishment, a Mahamudra text belonging to the Taklung Kagyu lineage. In this precious text, the great master Gelong Ngawang Tashi Paldrub condenses all the Buddhas’ teachings into a single, gradual path that provides practical, step-by-step guidance. Furthermore, the text not only teaches different meditation techniques but is also adorned with priceless pith instructions and teaches different methods for overcoming various obstacles in one’s meditation practice. Therefore, it is a teaching that is profoundly beneficial both for beginners and also for more advanced practitioners.
