September 6–November 29, 2017
PITH INSTRUCTIONS: Personal Reflections on the Heart Essence of Dzogchen

Beginning Wednesday, September 6, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will offer a free, 12-week series of Pith Instructions, broadcast each Wednesday live from his Facebook Page. Pith instructions are an extraordinarily simple and direct way to receive and connect with the ancient Tibetan teachings. In these teachings and guided meditations, Rinpoche will draw from his own years of personal reflection on the heart-essence teachings of dzogchen. The dzogchen, or “great perfection,” teachings are considered the path of self-liberation and the highest form of teaching and practice in the Bön Buddhist tradition. Their practices transport the practitioner directly into the nature of mind, which is our true essence.

Each Wednesday throughout the series, you can visit Rinpoche’s Facebook page at 1 p.m. New York time, or Eastern Daylight time U.S., to view the scheduled broadcast. Between Wednesday sessions Rinpoche will offer occasional, unscheduled live broadcasts, including conversations with invited guests on related topics. All sessions are recorded for future viewing.

Each pith instruction will be based on one of three different categories: base, path and fruition.

  1. Base: four weekly pith instructions that help us to understand our true nature — September 6, 20, 27; October 4
  2. Path: four weekly pith instructions that support us in directly realizing this truth through meditation practice — October 11, 18, 25; November 1
  3. Fruition: four weekly pith instructions that help us to fully realize, with confidence, who we really are, the truth that is already within us, and to fully manifest this realization in our life for the benefit of others — November 8, 15, 22, 29
