Dearest Vajra family and friends!
On August 8th, 2011 - 6 AM (Romanian time) our master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche will give direct transmission on the occasion of the Anniversary of Guru Padmasambhava and Yeshe Tsogyal.
We would like to invite you to Merigar East Gonpa for the weekend of August 5-7, 2011 for the Guruyoga Retreat and explanations of the World Wide Transmission, which will take place on Monday, the 8th, 6 am in the morning (Romanian time).
Since the explanation is essential for all the newcomers seriously interested in Dzogchen teaching, we would encourage you to participate at least on the weekend explanations. You can follow the actual Transmission at home by yourself, if your free time is limited.
The transmission of knowledge from Master to disciple can be oral, symbolic or direct. The uniqueness of the Dzogchen teaching is the direct transmission or “direct introduction”. In direct transmission Master and the student find themselves in the Primordial state at the same moment through one of the experiences related to body, voice or mind. Due to the power of the transmission the student is able to discover his own real condition in this way.
New comers who want to participate at this Transmission, should be seriously interested in the Teachings of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and should try to meet Rinpoche in person and to receive his Teachings in the future.
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu offers direct introduction three times a year, on the anniversaries of Garab Dorje, Padmasambhava and Adzam Drugpa. In order to make it possible for people who cannot attend a retreat or come to a direct introduction in person, these direct transmissions are also offered by live Internet webcast.
If you have never participated in a transmission with Chögyal Namkhai Norbu or if you wish to renew your understanding of the Direct introduction, you are strongly advised to attend the explanation session in order to receive the greatest benefit from it.
If you want to receive explanations of the World Wide Transmission but don't have possibility to come to Merigar East it is also possible to organize explanation through Skype video session. In order to give explanation through Skype it is recommended that you gather together with at least 2 people and inform us as soon as possible. When we get you request we will agree together about the day and hour when the explanation is hold.
