Ven. Younge Khachab Rinpoche VII 2012 Summer Dzogchen Retreat

Coming to PZC, Friday, June 8 – Friday, June 15

(Translation by Tenzin Bhuchung)

Younge Khachab Rinpoche

2012 Summer Dzogchen Retreat - Rinpoche will commence the retreat by bestowing the Energy of Intrinsic Awareness empowerment (rigpai tsel wang). This will be followed by instructions on Tsa-Lung practices related with tantra but particularly beneficial for inducing recognition of intrinsic awareness. Rinpoche will then give teachings on cutting through (trekchö) and leaping over (tögal) practices based on the direct instructions from his Gurus and his own meditative experiences. Finally, the enhancement techniques for exchanging samsara and nirvana (khorde rushen) will be imparted.

Required Participation:

Rinpoche would like to add depth to the Summer Retreat by having the participants live together and interact together for the retreat, allowing Rinpoche to teach higher and more in depth. Rinpoche has requested that the students attend the full retreat. If a participant can only come for 5 days that is acceptable to Rinpoche but they must pay the full retreat amount. No one will be allowed to come and go for the retreat.


Each person is guaranteed a bed. The first 10 people to register and complete payment in full will get first choice on single rooms. All others will share a double room.

Three vegetarian meals a day are included in the fee for the retreat. Meals will be provided by the Providence Zen Center staff. We will eat together as a group in the dining hall.

Please notify us if you have any health conditions, food allergies or food restrictions. The kitchen will try and accommodate these but please only mention true dietary needs since the kitchen needs to keep meals as simple as possible in order to accommodate such a large crowd.
