Tsegyalgar East Gakyil
Practise of the Precious Vase
We will have three sessions of practise each week and each session will be entirely dedicated to the practical application of Sutra, Tantra, or Dzogchen. There will be a brief explanation of the particular practise followed by an hour of uninterrupted practise.
This course can be considered as a practical application of what we have been discussing in the Dzogchen Preliminaries course for the last three months. Of course everyone is welcome but it is designed for people who wish to practise SMS base but would like to have a collective setting to practise in.
Steven Landsberg went to India in 1967 and spent almost ten years there studying Indian classical music and Tibetan Buddhism. After returning to the United States, he had the fortunate opportunity to meet Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and be introduced to the view and practise of Dzogchen. Steven immersed himself in the Santi Maha Sangha program which Rinpoche started in the 1990s and became an active participant in the establishment of Tashi Gar Norte in 2002. He served on their Gakyil or Board from 2008-2013. Rinpoche authorized him to teach in 2010 and he has been travelling throughout South America and Europe giving courses on the Santi Maha Sangha base during the last eight years, and giving public courses on mindful presence. He is currently serving as the president of the International Dzogchen Community.
