AUGUST 4TH – 5TH AT CHAGDUD GONPA AMRITA WITH LAMA PADMA GYATSO
Chenrezig is both enlightenment itself and the anticipation of that enlightenment as the path of the bodhisattva. As a meditational form, it is the embodiment of pure, unbiased compassion that expresses and matures our own indwelling goodness. Meditating on or merely thinking of Chenrezig refines away the effects of selfishness, confusion and negativity, and forges a link with genuine loving kindness. Eventually, the realization dawns that the brilliantly clear and empty form of Chenrezig, together with all its inexhaustible qualities, is none other than one’s own true nature. As the brilliance of that realization intensifies, the compassionate activities of Chenrezig completely pervade all realms of existence bringing immeasurable benefit to all beings.
Lama Padma Gyatso was ordained by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche in 1996 and is currently the Head Lama of Chagdud Gonpa North America. In 2004, he was entrusted by the lineage holders at Tromge Gonpa in Tibet to uphold and propagate this special Chenrezig cycle of practice. See more of Lama Padma’s Biography here.
