Dear Vajra Family,
This course will deal primarily with the explanation and practise of the Jnana Dakini Thugthig, or Essence of the Mind of the Jnana Dakini. She is inseparable from our very own state of instant presence, our own natural state beyond any concept. Leaving behind the barriers of acceptance and rejection, the path of the Jnana Dakini opens a space in which everything is recognised as a wisdom possibility. Rather than abandoning samsara, we embrace it as the appearance of wisdom.
We will go through the various visualisations described in Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s Longsal text as well as learn the melodies associated with the practise. During each session we will devote considerable time to the application of visualisation and recitation of mantra.
Furthermore, there will be discussion of some Santi Maha Sangha Base Level topics related to the view, meditation, and behaviour of Anu and Ati yoga and some time spent practising the seventh Lojong.
The lung transmission of Jnana Dakini or at least the root initiation of Goma Devi is required.
Steven Landsberg studied for several decades with traditional Tibetan Buddhist Teachers and has been a student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu since the early 1980s. Over the last ten years he has travelled extensively in the Americas and Europe and has given training on mindful presence and other practices related to our inherent freedom.
