« Contemplation on the four thoughts that turn the mind from Samsara » With Dungsey Lhuntrul Dechen Gyurmey Rinpoche

Preliminary practices are the first step to the commencement of Dharma practice. The Tibetan term Ngöndro literally means “something that is placed before, that precedes”. Two kinds of preliminary practices can be found: the first is called common or ordinary and the second special or extraordinary.
Ordinary preliminaries consist of a series of deep reflections on “the four thoughts that help turn the mind.” They divert it from imprisonment in samsara and turn it toward the practice of Dharma.
This winter retreat in complete silence, will be the opportunity to plunge into the very foundations of Buddhist practice with the guidance of a highly qualified Master.
Normal price: 305 CHF / 280 € Reduced price**: 215 CHF / 195 €

With Dungsey Lhuntrul Dechen Gyurmey Rinpoche, highly accomplished master of rituals in the Vajrayana Buddhism tradition, he was recognized as the reincarnation of Jigme Tempay Gyeltsen, the third Tamdrin Lhunpo Chogtrul.
