The Tergar Meditation Community, founded by revered Dharma teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, has announced that His Eminence Mindrolling Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche will give a live teaching on February 24 on the theme “Mahamudra : Reveal our true nature.

“The Mahamudra style of practice can help us discover our true nature and the nature of our mind in an accessible and direct way,” Tergar explained in an announcement shared with BDG. “Drawn from the experiences of realized beings and explained by excellent teachers such as Mingyur Rinpoche, these teachings can become a lived experience for us. »

Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche's teaching will cover how Mahamudra can be practiced in the modern world, how Mahamudra practice can help us recognize who we truly are, and how practitioners can engage and continue to explore the path of Mahamudra by connecting with and cultivating our inherent awareness, compassion and wisdom.

“The path of Mahamudra offers us a unique way to free ourselves from our limited views and perceptions and connect to the essence of who we truly are,” observed Tergar. “By familiarizing ourselves with the vision of Mahamudra, we can once and for all liberate our minds, freeing ourselves from the dungeon of suffering of samsara. » (Tergar)

Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche, one of the most revered and famous contemporary lamas of the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism, was bored in Kalimpong, India in 1967, eldest daughter of the late Mindrolling Trichen, Khandro Rinpoche.

At the age of two, she was recognized by Rangjung Rigpe Dorje (1924-1981), the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa, as the reincarnation of the great dakini from Tsurphou monastery, Khandro Urgyen Tsomo (1897-1961). Khandro Urgyen Tsomo, one of the most renowned female teachers of her time, was the wife of Khakyab Dorje (1871-1922), the 15th Karmapa, and was herself recognized as an incarnation of Yeshe Tsogyal (c. 757- 817 CE).

Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche studied and practiced under some of the most revered masters of the Tibetan tradition, including: Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen; Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche; Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche; Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche; Kyabje Tulku Ugyen Rinpoche; and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.

Today, Rinpoche teaches in Asia, Europe and North America, while remaining active at Mindrolling Monastery in India. She leads a network of centers and communities in many countries and has established numerous organizations focused on charitable projects and the preservation of the Buddhadharma.

Simply put, Vajrayana trains awareness of the true nature, such that all falsehood collapses. When the true nature is revealed, the ability to transcend our constant attachment to "self" arises spontaneously, allowing true compassion to spontaneously seep through. This is the path of Vajrayana practice. — Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche
