Beacon of Certainty Retreat
Crestone, Colorado
April 13-22, 2017

Within a picturesque environment, Buddhist teacher Venerable Khenpo Lopzang Tenzin will provide daily teachings on the text “Beacon of Certainty” by Mipham Rinpoche. Mipham Rinpoche was a master and famous scholar in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism in the 19th century.

In this text Mipham Rinpoche presents the idea that conventional reality is dependent on the mind set of sentient beings. That is, we see reality the way we want to see it and in terms of what we don’t want to see. In the text he discusses the importance of using ones mind in a very sophisticated way to be able to distinguish between conventional and ultimate reality; and equally to recognize the point of union of the two realities.

Khenpo Lopzang Tenzin is the Retreat Master at Vajra Vidya Retreat Centre in Colorado where he leads the traditional Karma Kagyu 3 year retreats. Khenpo La is renowned as an exceptional scholar and communicator.

The retreat will include a daily schedule of:

  • Guided meditation sessions
  • Puja – religious chanting and instruction
  • Gentle Yoga and Pranayama sessions

There will also be spare time each day to relax and enjoy the surroundings
Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the E-Vam land where a hermitage is planned to be built.

Comfortable shared room accommodation and vegetarian meals are provided. Assistance can be arranged for transport from Denver airport to the retreat facility. The Retreat is suitable for beginners or the more experienced.
