H.H. Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche to Bestow the Empowerment of Konchog Chidu
Organized by Danakosha Dharma Center - July 26th to 27th 2014
Danakosha Dharma Center is very happy and honored to inform that His Holiness Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, the supreme head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, has kindly accepted Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche's heartfelt invitation to Finland to give blessings and empowerments for increasing of Buddhist activities, knowledge, and realization.
His Holiness Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche is the head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism by the wish and request of the Tibetan government in exile and all Nyingma followers internationally.
There are four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism: Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya, and Gelug. Nyingma is the ancient tradition of Tibetan Buddhism established by the king Trisong Detsen and great scholars Shantarakshita and Padmasambhava. Particularly the great Padmasambhava gave the ripening and liberating empowerments, such as Eight Herukas, to his 25 heart disciples, who attained realization through his profound teachings in a single life. Due to that Buddhism spread all over Tibet. Since then until today the unbroken lineage of the realized masters has been maintained from generation to generation by great masters such as the hundred great treasure discoverers.
Today His Holiness Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche is one the holders of the lineage of realization and transmission, and he transfers it to the new generation according to the Nyingma tradition.
Konchod Chidu means "Embodiment of the precious ones." It's a practice concentrating on Guru Rinpoche, and it includes all the Three Roots - outer peaceful Padmasambhava as Guru, inner wrathful Padmasambhava as yidam, and secret Padmasambhava in the form of Simhamukha as Dakini, as well as Padma Wodbhar as the long life form of Padmasambhava. This terma treasure was found by terton Jatson Nyingpo, a reincarnation of Nyongben Tingzin Zangpo, a close student of Padmasambhava, who attained the rainbow body.
Konchog Chidu is a very profound and wide cycle of teachings. Padmasambhava says: If someone even just opens a book of this text, the surroundings become rich and peaceful, and all wars become reduced. If you have devotion and wish to practice this text, it has the power of giving you the attainment of a pure land, even to an animal. These blessings of this profound teaching have not diminished, and therefore receiving this transmission and empowerment is more precious than finding a wish fullfilling jewel. Even if you have doubt about this dharma, or you think that it's impossible to receive these blessings, your bad karma will be purified and you will enter the path of liberation.
In addition, an individual practitioner who even just holds these teachings in his hands, offers to its deities or listens to these precious teachings, is a son of all Tathagats gone to bliss, and his karmic defilements become pure like a washed white conch. The two accumulations increase like the stars in the sky. Life, accumulations, bodhichitta mind and wisdom increase limitlessly. When death comes, one can recognize ones own natural state and be liberated in the bardo. There is no question about the benefits if you practice or accomplish this text. These are words of Padmasambhava.
