Das Lied der eulenköpfigen Dakini (’ug gDong mKha’ ’gro sNying thig mDo / Ulukha-mukha Dakini Upadesha Sutra) ist ein Zyklus von dreizehn Belehrungen der erleuchteten Dakini Khyungchen Aro Lingma aus dem 20. Jahrhundert. Sie war eine volle Inkarnation von Yeshé Tsogyel, der Gefährtin des tantrischen Buddhas Padmasambhava und der ersten tibetischen Frau, die ein Buddha war. Diese Belehrungen erklären die Kernthemen der buddhistischen Sutras aus der Perspektive des Dzogchen. Alles, was Buddhisten als den langen, anstrengenden, stufenweisen Weg kennen, entsprechend der bekannten Belehrungen von Shakyamuni Buddha, kann neu und frisch verstanden werden als der mühelose, friedvolle Pfad der sofortigen Selbstbefreiung. Die historisch früheste Phase des Buddhisumus wird erkennbar und erfahrbar, ohne die implizite Notwendigkeit eines monastischen Lebensstils.

Becoming Confident in Limitless Self

The Song of the Owl Headed Dakini (’ug gDong mKha’ ’gro sNying thig mDo / Ulukha-mukha Dakini Upadesha Sutra) is a cycle of thirteen teachings from the 20thC enlightened dakini Khyungchen Aro Lingma. She was a full incarnation of Yeshé Tsogyel, who was the consort of the Tantric Buddha Padmasambhava and the first Tibetan woman to become a Buddha. These teachings explain the core topics of the Buddhist Sutras from the perspective of Dzogchen. Everything Buddhists know as the long, effortful, gradual path according to the familiar teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha can be understood afresh, as the effortless peaceful path of immediate self-liberation. The earliest historical stratum of Buddhism becomes knowable and practicable without the implied necessity of a monastic lifestyle.

Wearing the Body of Visions

Meditation and Everyday Life in Buddhist Tantra

Weekend event with Rig´dzin Dorje

2 - 4 of November 2012
Friday: 19:00 - 22:00
Saturday: 10:00 - 20:00
Sunday: 10:00 - 13:00

Shambhala Zentrum Wien
Stiftgasse 15-17, 1070
Wien, Austria

This course describes Tantra in fresh, creative, contemporary language. It offers a direct opening into the Buddhist path of self-transformation through visionary experience. This is a hot-blooded arena of both meditation practice and daily life, explained from the radical perspective of the most simple, direct and immediate vehicle of Tantra, the ‘Total Completeness’ teachings (Dzogchen). Ngala Rig'dzin Dorje exposes the heart-essence of the most dynamic dramas of the Tantric practitioner: indestructible relationship with the teacher; the iridescent nature of transmission; and the fire of empowerment.

Ngala Rig'dzin Dorje will be giving Tantric ritual empowerments into visionary practices (to be announced). His commentary, explanation and advice will reflect and introduce his Root Teacher Ngak’chang Rinpoche’s book Wearing the Body of Visions.

‘As soon as we begin to practice silent sitting meditation, to stare into the nature of what we are, we become a little suspicious of our life-event. It could be quite possible that things are both not what they seem, and simultaneously exactly what they seem. This could be called the Tantric joke, the Vajra sense of humour that continually prompts us to ask the question: “What is going on?”’ 
— Ngak’chang Rinpoche, Wearing the Body of Visions.

Friday evening: € 30
Weekend: € 150
Early payment (till Oct. 2): € 120
