SMS 1st level s Jakobom Winklerom

19. august 2020 – 23. august 2020 celý deň

Dear Vajra family,

we would like to extend a warm invitation to a practice and teaching retreat on various topics of Santi Maha Sangha 1st level with instructor Jakob Winkler, which will take place from the 19th to 23rd of August in Wangdenling.

Jakob Winkler is a scholar, translator, editor, and teacher in the field of Tibetology and Buddhism. He has studied and practiced Buddhism since the mid-1980s under various masters. Our master, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, gave Jakob authorization to teach in 2002 as a Santi Maha Sangha instructor. He has contributed fundamental research to the understanding of Lhasa’s Lukhang temple and its dzogchen murals, being the first Western scholar to identify Pema Lingpa’s treasure texts as the source for the murals.

In this retreat we will practice various methods related to dzogchen semde that enable one to find oneself in the state of contemplation.

Participation is limited to people who undertook SMS 1st level training under the guidance of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.

Program will be decided with Jakob on the spot.
