Buddhas stories of Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha; and Padmasambhava and Yeshé Tsogyel, the Tantric Buddhas.

Tibetan Yogis– Many realised masters wandered Tibet as incognito yogis and yoginis, often unrecognised – such as Dza Patltrül Rinpoche and Do Khyentsé Yeshé Dorje.

Wisdom Eccentrics – Kyabjé Chhi’mèd Rig’dzin Rinpoche and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche were modern-day mahasiddhas – realised masters who manifested crazy wisdom.

Tantric Empowerment

The Aro gTér Lineage – the Aro gTér Lineage traces its origins back to Yeshé Tsogyel through a lineage of realised women – the Mother Essence Lineage.

Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin will lead this weekend of stories of realised Buddhist practitioners. These tales function as inspiration for our own Buddhist practice, but are also often most entertaining. They may challenge our view of morality and societal norms, and enable us to step out of our habitual patterns of perception and conduct. Questions about the stories are warmly welcomed throughout the weekend, so that they can provide a basis for further insight into Buddhist view and practice.
On Saturday evening, Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin will offer tantric empowerment.
