Perfect Conduct: Vows and Samaya (6-Week Course)

6-Week online course with Khentrul Rinpoche.  There are hundreds of vows in Buddhism between all the vehicles. Upon entering the path, it may seem daunting to keep them all. Vows are like learning to ride a bike. At first it may seem difficult to do it, but once you are in the habit they happen automatically. 

Khentrul Rinpoche will give teachings to help us ascertain the essence of the vows. When we understand the essence then it is easier to keep the full array. He will help us understand how we can use our mind to understand them in degrees and work to keep them all. It may seem confusing as if the Pratimoksha and tantric vows are contradictory. Rinpoche explains the non-contradictory nature of maintaining the vows of the 3 vehicles. 

Practical Teaching Includes:

  • Pratimoksha Vows
  • Bodhisattva Vows
  • Tantric Vows
  • 25 Shambhala Warrior Conducts (Kalachakra Vows) 

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions, discussions and sharing throughout the day.

Languages
Rinpoche will be teaching in English.

Translations
Portuguese, Cantonese, and Mandarin.  Additional languages may be added. Translations are only available for live attendees.

Teacher

  • Khentrul Rinpoché
    Khentrul Rinpoché
    Jonang Kalachakra & Rimé Master

    Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth 1, 2, and 3, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.

    Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of Peace and Harmony (Dzokden).
