Later known as Guru Rinpoche, thismaster was able to subdue these local gods and spirits in firece magical combats, convertingthem to the Dharma. Binding them with powerful oaths, he comissioned them henceforth to beguardians and protectors of the Dharma and its practitioners. Hence they are known asDharmapalas.

Once there, he subdued the local gods and demons in magical combat, converting theminto protectors and guardians of the Buddhist teachings. Padmasambhava not only introducedthe practices of Mahayoga Tantra into Tibet, but also Dzogchen, often considered in the Tibetantradition to represent the highest teaching of the Buddha. Dzogchen points directly to the Natureof Mind which lies beyond the transformative processes of the Tantras.Later he concealed many Termas, or hidden treasure texts, throughout theHimalayan region ofTibet and Bhutan. These were rediscovered in later centuries by the reincarnations of hisoriginal band of disciples. In the following centuries, his followers, the married Lamas known asNgakpas, became renowned as the Nyingmapas, or the Ancient Ones. In this weekendseminar we will survey the contents of the Nyingmapa tradition, both Kama and Terma, andfocus on the practice of Guru Yoga, and selected other practices.Contact: Jacek, jacekmisioknd@gmail.com ; tel. 60-391-4172Last update: September 21, 2017 2 / 2mailto:mailto:
