Embodying The Great Compassionate One and Introducing Dying with Confidence

Event Description:


A Three Day Retreat on the Practice of Avalokitesvara, the Embodiment of Compassion in Ottawa with Anyen Rinpoche Friday September 24 to Sunday September 26, 2010.

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a Loving Kindness meditation practice or deepen an already established Secret Mantrayana practice. Anyen Rinpoche will be introducing his new book, Dying with Confidence, Friday night. The remainder of the weekend will be dedicated to receiving the empowerment called "the self-liberation of suffering," transmission and instructions on the practice of Avalotikesvara.

Rinpoche will teach on a special text that was revealed as a mind treasure by the great Dzogchen master Padma Kongtrul Namgyal Zangbo. We will also have the opportunity to practice together and clarify through question and answers.

We have enjoyed receiving teachings from Anyen Rinpoche twice over the past year in Ottawa, and hope you will join us for this very special weekend. All are welcome to attend regardless of experience, as this practice is one that can be done by pure beginners as well as experienced Tantrikas, and is beneficial to all.

Anyen Rinpoche is an esteemed scholar and fifth in an unbroken lineage of heart sons who received their lineage of the Longchen Nyingthig and Dzogchen teachings directly from the renowned Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche. In addition to teaching throughout North America and Asia, he is also on the faculty at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. He is the author of The Union of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta, Momentary Buddhahood, and Dying with Confidence (October, 2010). You can learn more about Anyen Rinpoche at
