Now when we still have the power to do so, by auspicious conditions that accord with the proper path, relying on the inexhaustible wholesome dharmas gained, by having gathered the two accumulations, let us pass beyond the city of samsara.—Longchen Rabjam

Last summer, Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche began a new cycle of teachings based on The Great Chariot, a commentary on resting in ease in the nature of mind, the “easer of weariness.” Written by the great omniscient one, Longchen Rabjam, this text was composed “so that its readers could cross completely the ocean of sufferings of samsara to the fruition of Buddhahood.” As an in-depth presentation of the stages of the path from beginning to end, it is an invaluable guide for all of us on the path of Dharma.

Amidst the beauty of Mindrolling Lotus Garden in Spring, you are warmly invited to join for this two-part cycle of teachings which offer an opportunity to closely review and study the first chapter of The Great Chariot, which Rinpoche presented last summer, and encouraged students to read three times during the year in preparation for continued teachings.

Part I: This Precious Human Life (April 12 – 15)

Part II: Impermanence and Change (scheduled during the Practice and Study Intensive in May, dates TBA)

Included in each of the two reviews, will be sessions of meditation, contemplation, and discussion.
