Hjärtligt välkomna till Milarepa-sånger och Dzambhala retreat med Drubpon Tsering Rinpoche 29 mars – 2 april, 2018 på Ratnashri Meditation Center
Milarepa songs of realization
The great Tibetan yogi Jetsun Milarepa (c. 1051 – c. 1135 CE) is by far the most renowned and venerated Tibetan yogi, saint and poet. At early age, he was an ordinary human being who committed grave misdeeds. Then he turned to the dharma and through unwavering devotion to his teacher Marpa, single-pointedness, limitless patience, enthusiastic effort and accumulation of unfathomable wisdom and compassion, he attained the supreme buddhahood in one lifetime. Milarepa was famous for his teaching of the dharma through his spontaneous songs of spiritual realization (dohas) which serve as a vibrant source of inspiration, blessings, and a guide for all who seek the Dharma.
According to Tibetan legend, a revered high lama Atisha (982-1054) was walking alone when he found a man starving and near death. After looking around and unable to find food for the old man, he cut flesh from his own body and offered it to the starving man. But the man refused to eat his flesh. Being depressed and not knowing how else to help the man nearing death, Lama Atisha sat down next to him. At that point there was a blinding bright white light and the Thousand-armed Chenrezig (Bodhisattva of infinite compassion) appeared before Lama Atisha. Chenrezig told Lama Atisha that he (Chenrezig) was going to manifest himself as the Lord of Wealth, Dzambhala who grants wealth and assures that those in poverty would no longer suffer. White Dzambhala is the Lord of Wealth of longevity, merit, food and riches, who belongs to the Jewel Family (Ratnasambhava) of the five Buddha families. This wealth granting bodhisattva provides for one's physical needs just so that one can more successfully pursue the spiritual path, can practice generosity to accumulate merits, to transcend material and emotional attachments. This great compassion deity can avert disasters like wars, earthquakes, fires and floods; dispel both physical and mental poverty and sicknesses around the world and other difficulties, purify non-virtuous karma and karmic obstacles as well as develop our bodhicitta mind.
Drubpon Tsering Rinpoche is the resident Lama at the Drikung Garchen Institute, Munich, Germany since 2002 and is appointed by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche as his representative in Europe. “As I have passed on all responsibilities to him, I believe that he will become an authentic guide in terms of the true Dharma. As Lama Tsering has been with me from the age of eight until now, [I recognize] his wish and experience to bring benefit to others according to [the diverse kinds of] phenomena and individuals.”
Ordained as a monk at the age of eight, he received the novice ordination two years later. He completed his studies at the main monastery of the Drikung-Kagyu lineage in Dehra Dun, India. In addition, he completed the traditional three-year retreat comprising the five-fold path of Mahamudra and the Six Yogas of Naropa. Subsequently, His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche and His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche conferred the title of a Drubpon (retreat master) upon him. Rinpoche leads various retreats and meditation courses almost every month, in Germany or other European countries, suitable for beginners as well as for advanced practitioners.
