Online Program: Calling the Guru From Afar Livestream

With Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche

May 27 - 30, 2022

A Retreat Exploring Direct Path Practices

A DHARMAKAYA CENTER RETREAT

Written by the great Rimé master Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé, Calling the Guru from Afar is a supplication to the gurus of all Buddhist lineages. In this compelling three-day program, Rimé master Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche uses it as the framework through which to practice the direct path, a powerful means of realizing the true nature of the mind.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In Calling the Guru From Afar, the supplicant calls on all the great Buddhist masters, one by one, asking for their blessings. In the related practice, the goal is to arouse a sense of deep devotion for the guru—not mere lip service but something felt in the very depths of your heart. This profound meditation can become a direct path to understanding the true, timeless nature of the mind.

Together, we will recite the classic prayer—then Rinpoche will explain both the meaning and the practice, leading us in meditation and answering questions as they arise.

You will leave with a deeper understanding and a stronger practice.
