Shedra Flyer 2

Mipham Shedra Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Center proudly presents the
Guhyagarbha Tantra, taught by Resident Teacher, Lhoppön Rechung
Rinpoche. At the request of his guru, the Ven.Kyabje Bhakha Tulku
Rinpoche, Lhoppön Rinpoche will take us on a guided journey into this
foundational tantric text of the Nyingma tradition.

According to Longchenpa, the famous Buddhist sage, the Guhyagarbha Tantra, or “Secret Womb Tantra” is "the highest summit of all vehicles, the source of all verbal transmissions, the great, great shortcut of the vehicle of all Buddhas of the three times, the most secret.”¹

It has taken Rinpoche many years to prepare the community to the point of being ready to receive these teachings. This course therefore represents a rare and precious opportunity to receive these teachings live from Rinpoche. It is uncertain whether Rinpoche will ever offer this particular teaching again. 

We invite you to join Rinpoche for this rare and precious opportunity to engage these profound and illuminating teachings.
