Merigar East Post- Retreat Course
The Seven Lojongs and Connected Yantra Yoga & Pranayamas
with Zoltan Cser
August 10th - 15th, 2015
The Course will be led by Zoltan Cser – First Level SMS Instructor; First Level Yantra Yoga Instructor; Second Level Vajra Dance Instructor. He is Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s student and member of the Dzogchen Community since 2004. He leads different kind of courses related to the abovementioned main practices within the Community.
This Course will be about the Seven Special Mind Trainings which are basic practices in Ati Dzogpa Chenpo. As it is written in The Precious Vase by our precious Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu:
“Whoever practices these seven trainings will easily succeed, first of all to enter the deep and swift path of Atiyoga, then put into practice without difficulty its fundamental points, and finally to integrate his or her mind with the teaching. Thanks to their qualities and special functions, all Atiyoga teachers in recent times are accustomed to usher beginners into the Ati teaching through the practice of these seven trainings.”
The mind trainings in SMS Base teaching are belonging to the Six preliminary Dharmas of Longchenpa aiming to calm body, speech and mind and re-educate ourselves. These mind trainings derive from a Nyingthig teaching belonging to the terma rediscovered by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo (originally transmitted by Vimalamitra it to Chetsun Senge Wangchuk in XI. c.).
We will alternate movement and sitting practices to gain experiences first of all on the body level how to sit properly, then on the mind level the nature of samsara and the importance to turn away from samsaric behavior turning toward the Dharma. In the seventh mind training we develop the three basic experiences bliss, clarity and emptiness to be able to enter the deep path of Ati.
So be active and don’t hesitate to take part in this course! It can help everybody to move forward on the path towards our realization!
