On Thursday, March 1, 2018, Khenpo Lobsang will kindly join us from Vajra Vidya Retreat Center in Crestone, CO. 

He will  lead us in a morning fire puja at the Kagyu Mila Guru Stupa on this auspicious day of Mila Repa's Parinirvana day. If interested, please join us at 9:30 am. Thursday, March 1, at the stupa, just east of 19 Northstar Road.

We will then have a potluck lunch at the Herman Rednick Center with Khenpo-la at noon.

If there is time before or after lunch, Khenpo Lobsang will give us lo-jung teachings that he recently received from H.H. the 17th Karmapa.

ABOUT THE TEACHER: Khenpo Lobsang Tenzin was born in Bhutan in 1969. He entered the monastery at the age of 9.  At 22 he entered shedra, completed the 5-year course of study, became Khorpon, then Lopon, and in 1996 Khenpo. He received full ordination in 1985 from Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche. For ten years he was Director of Vajra Vidya Institute in Asia. He has studied in all four lineages, is a Rime scholar, and teaches warm-heartedly from the synthesis of Buddhist lineages. In 2004, Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche appointed him as the principal Professor and Director of all his monastic colleges.  He teaches at all Thrangu Rinpoche's centers worldwide. In 2009 he went to England where he studied English at Oxford. For a full biography of his many accomplishments please visit this link.

Having attended shedra with Khenpo Jigme, he and Khenpo Jigme have known each other for 30 years.  We are so fortunate that they are the resident Khenpos at Vajra Vidya Retreat Center in Crestone CO, and that they come to share the Dharma with us.

Anna Douglas Weekend A Great Success

About 18 people, many new to the Earth Journey sites and programs, came to the Friday evening public talk, held at the Earth Journey Meditation Temple.

Nine retreatants attended the full retreat all day on Saturday and Sunday, also held at the Meditation Temple.

Although the topics of death, impermanence, letting go, and awakening through dying are not favorites in our western culture, the information given by Anna was very pertinent to all and the spirit throughout the retreat was joyful and full.

How to hold and use the most helpful attitudes while traveling our last journey on this planet was shared by many in small circles and as a group with Anna's kind, soft, and experienced guidance.

The call from everyone was to have this retreat again in the future!
