Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche

Resting in the True Nature of Mind: Essential Meditation Instructions

Commentary on a text by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche


Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche seldom travels to the Western Hemisphere, and we were deeply honored to host Rinpoche for a teaching, a reception, and to join him on a tour of old Philadelphia, PA.


How can we access and become familiar with the true nature of our mind? What are the essential steps and pith instructions needed to experience the essence of the mind? Rabjam Rinpoche will give instructions on an approach to meditation based on a poem-text written by the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of the foremost Tibetan Buddhist masters of the 20th century. His teachings will explain how to establish the correct view, work with the endless arising of thoughts, and gain confidence in the inherent wisdom qualities of our mind. These instructions have proven to be invaluable to both new and experienced meditators.


Rinpoche seldom travels to the Western Hemisphere and this is a unique opportunity to receive teachings directly from him in an era when it is so deeply needed. There will be time allotted for questions and answers following the talk.


Doors open at 4:00 p.m., teachings begin at 4:30 p.m. Please be prompt, so that everyone is in their seats before Rinpoche arrives.
