Philadelphia - Flight of the Garuda

Description: Flight of the Garuda by the great Tibetan Yogi, Shabkar

Session 1: Friday, June 1 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

For those who were able to attend last year, this will be a continuation of the teachings we have received over the past three years. For those joining this year for the first time, it will be as if from the very beginning. All are welcome!

Lama Lena will share with us her extensive practice, insight and wisdom guiding us on an experiential journey within using Shabkar’s ‘Flight of the Garuda’ as the map for finding our inner unity of the ‘One Taste’ of awakened awareness. This teaching is open and suitable for meditation practicioners, both new and advanced in practice, entering with "beginners mind." 'This is a rare opportunity to receive teachings from the Heart of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Shabkar lived during the 19th century and was a great eccentric wandering yogi who engaged himself in extensive retreat through the methods of direct awakening found in the Dzogchen tradition. His poetic song, Flight of the Garuda, contains the essence of his realization and insight and conveys the depths and heart of its practice.
