Description

A Song of the View of Trekchö (Cutting Through) by the famed yogin Shabkar
* A class for Vajrayana practitioners

Mondays, Feb. 25 - April 22, 2019 (except April 1)

Course Description:
Lama Shabkar, or Tsokdruk Rangdrol (1781-1851 C.E.), a consummate enlightened yogin, composed his songs from desolate mountain retreats and from an isolated island in the middle of a vast lake. Considered a rebirth of Milarepa, he exemplified the realization and yogic accomplishment of Milarepa as well as his eloquence in the spontaneous composition of spiritual songs (dohas). Shabkar’s songs, with great poetic beauty, point directly to the nature of mind and impart crucial spiritual instruction for the practitioner.

This class will explore one of the most famous collections of Shabkar, The Flight of the Garuda, which is a series of songs “illustrating the point of view of Cutting Through, according to the Luminous Great Perfection, endowed with the power of enabling one to swiftly traverse all the paths and levels.” *

This class will incorporate study, talks, discussion and practice, with particular emphasis on the practice of Shabkar’s instructions, and discussion.

* from Lama Shabkar, The Flight of the Garuda, pg. 16, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, 1986
