Teachings on the Kagyu Tradition with HE Rigzin Chenpo

June 2, 2018

At the request of Khentrul Rinpoche, His Eminence Kathog Rigzin Chenpo will give five days of profound teachings on the extraordinary history and unique views of each of the five main traditions of Tibetan Buddhism—Nyingma, Sakya, Kagyu, Jonang and Geluk.

The third tradition in our series will be the Kagyu Tradition who trace their origins back to the Dharma transmitted by the great translator Marpa Chökyi Lodrö. While Marpa had many disciples, his most famous was the Tibetan yogi-saint Milarepa.

It was Milarepa’s student Gampopa, who successfully established a monastery combining the sutra teachings he had received from the Kadampas (a lineage originating from the Indian pandit Atisha Dipamkara) and the tantric teachings he received from Milarepa.

As a foundation, Kagyu practitioners study the sutra teachings as presented in the Stages of the Path (lamrim) system. After completing various preliminary practices, practitioners will generally engage in one of two paths. The Path of Liberation is focused on developing the view of Mahamudra in accordance with the sutras, while the Path of Skillful Means is focused on developing the view of Mahamudra based on the system of practice known as the Six Dharmas of Naropa. Often these two paths will be combined, with the sutra Mahamudra being used as a preliminary to the practice of tantric Mahamudra.
