Lama Tsultrim Sangpo

We are delighted to welcome Lama Tsultrim Sangpo, he is a senior monk and chant master at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery in Kathmandu. An extremely experienced monk, Lama Tsultrim Sangpo completed the traditional three year retreat under the guidance of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and currently trains the younger monks at the monastery in the practice of the ritual arts.  
Lama Tsultrim is also the resident teacher at Gomde California during their summer teaching programme and therefore is very used to working with a western audience.

This is a wonderful opportunity to practise and study this central sādhana practice of our tradition. We will follow the traditional 4 session format for the retreat. Lama Tsultrim is thoroughly versed in this sādhana practice and will provide authentic step-by-step guidance on the practice and ritual, and also be available to answer questions.

Tukdrub Trinley Nyingpo - Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles

The Chokling Tersar, or Chokling New Treasures Lineage, is the collected treasure revelations of the great treasure revealer Orgyen Chokgyur Lingpa (1829-1870), one of the greatest visionary masters in Tibetan history. These teachings and practices are a direct transmission from the great Lotus-born Master, Guru Padmasambhava, and are specifically meant to be transmitted and practised during this day and age and are now widely practised by both the Kagyu and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Tukdrub Trinley Nyingpo pertains to one of the main cycles of teachings in the Chokling Tersar known as Lamé Tukdrub Barché Künsel (Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles). The Trinley Nyingpo is the condensed sādhana from this cycle. The chief figure in the practice is Guru Rinpoche, with the sambhogakāya Avalokiteśvara and the dharmakāya Amitābha, surrounded by his twelve emanations. The Trinley Nyingpo is one of the most popular and widely-practiced sādhanas in the Chokling Tersar and is a practice that many people around the world have a strong connection with.

His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche said about this treasure teaching:
The Barché Künsel is the heart essence of the accomplished master Padmasambhava, who perceives the three times in their entirety. It is the quintessence of one billion heart sādhanas of the Guru, the most unique terma buried in the land of Tibet, and it is the first among the Four Cycles of Guru Sadhana. This Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles contains in completeness all the profound key points of the view, meditation,and conduct of the Three Inner Yoga Tantras.
This pure and perfect teaching, which effortlessly bestows, in accordance with one’s wishes, the all-encompassing supreme and common siddhis, temporarily and ultimately, was an unprecedented diffusion of the gemstones of the profound meaning, like opening up the treasury of the universal monarch.”
