Program topics and pricing are bellow.
Shitro, the practice of the peaceful and wrathful manifestation is a tantric practice with a close connection to Dzogchen. This practice is used for purifying our obscurations and we can apply it for the same purpose for the benefit of the deceased. Based on the Bardo Thödrol, the „Tibet Book of the Dead“ which is nowadays wide spread. It came to Tibet by Padmasambhava and was revealed as Terma or ‘treasure teaching’ in the 14th Century by the tertön Karma_Lingpa.
The practice, which we use is from Mingyur Dorje (1645-1667), a student and teacher of Karma Chagme Raga Asya (1613-1678). Chögyal Namkhai Norbu has chosen that version for his students, because it is very essential and easy to use.
Topics covered in the course include:
– Death and dying in the view of Buddhism.
– Preparation for the moment of death.
– The mandala of the peaceful and wrathful deities.
– The practice of the peaceful and wrathful deities: Shitro
and essential way of practicing it.
– How to help the dying and dead.
Participants need transmission of that practice to participate or sincere interest. In that case they can receive the transmission later from Rinpoche e.g. through webcast.
