The ordinary and extraordinary preliminary practices are the foundation for realizing the true nature of mind. Ngöndro practice is important for all the Buddhists. One who teaches this, this teacher must have received the teaching and done Ngöndro according to the lineage. Only one having these conditions may teach.
Lama Chöying will give instruction on the Four Ordinary Preliminary practices as well as the Four Extraordinary Practices of Ngöndro, based on the commentaries of the Torch of Certainty by the Mahasiddha Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche as well as the the Ocean of Definitive Meaning by the 9th Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje.
When followed in the prescribed sequence, these practices create the confidence and certainty that one will fulfill one's aim: enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings. By means of this complete path to Enlightenment, beginning students will gain a firm footing to the path of liberation, and allow those more advanced students to re-invigorate their practice and stabilize their understanding.
Please do not miss this; this program has not been taught commonly so this a rare opportunity. It is best to participate in all of the sessions, so that you can receive the full instructions and gain the full confidence in your practice, but there is blessings in even one session of these teachings.
