    Online meditation retreat Phases 3 and 4 in Düdjom Lingpa’s classic Dzogchen text The Vajra Essence: From the Matrix of Pure Appearances and Primordial Consciousness, a Tantra on the Self-Emergent Nature of Existence, sponsored by the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies

    Online

    During this eight-week retreat, Alan Wallace will grant an oral transmission and commentary to Düdjom Lingpa’s revealed treatise, The Vajra Essence, picking up where we left off last May, beginning with the section on “Combating the Faults of Benefit and Harm.”

    This is the second in a series of 8-week retreats that will cover the first six of the seven phases as presented in this most elaborate of all Düdjom Lingpa’s pure visionary teachings on the Great Perfection. The oral transmission and commentary of the seventh phase will eventually be granted only to those individuals who have gained a firm, experiential foundation in the first six.
