"Danakosha Sweden has the great joy to once again welcome Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche to Stockholm. Rinpoche has very kindly agreed to give a weekend course on the "Six Bardos" in Stockholm in April.
Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche was born in 1975 as a son of Venerable Lama Thubten Kalsang and Yongdu Wangmo, and he was recognized by H.H. Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche as the 3rd reincarnation of Gegong Rokza Sonam Palge Rinpoche. He studied in the college of Mindrolling Monastery, and graduated as a certificated sutric and tantric holder of teachings. Currently he is the spiritual director of the Danakosha Dharma community. His great kindness and generosity of teachings is truly appreciated by his students.
The six intermediate states
The original usage of the term intermediate state (bardo) within the literature of classical Buddhist abhidharma suggests that it referred exclusively to the period between the time of death and the time of rebirth. According to the Nyingma and Kagyu schools, however, the term 'intermediate state' refers to the key phases of life and death identified as: the intermediate state of living, the intermediate state of meditative concentration, the intermediate state of dreams, the intermediate state of the time of death, the intermediate state of reality and the intermediate state of rebirth.
During each of these phases, the consciousness of a sentient being has particular experiential qualities, and corresponding to these qualities of experience there are specific
meditative techniques conducive to realisation of the ultimate nature of mind and phenomena.
The subject of bardo is included in the very popular Tibetan Book of the Dead which has been of great interest to many people in the west, describing the experiences of the dying and dead as well as important instructions on the Buddhist path.
Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche has been teaching courses for several years on the subject and has the means and knowledge to make it accessible to the listeners. The teachings will be given in english.
Saturday/Sunday 10:00 - 12:00, lunch break, 14:00 - 17:00 (usually with short brake)
Skånegatan 68, Södermalm, Stockholm
At the end of the teaching one is able to offer a khatag (tibetan scarf) and give a donation directly to the Lama according to one's own means and wishes.
This event is arranged by Danakosha Sweden and is non-profit for the organizers.
