This are the teachings from my root lama Kunzang Dechen Lingpa whos name means, "Pointing out the bliss of the primordial buddha." I hope some people might take advantage of these cycles of teachings.

These teachings will be very special this year, and most have not been given before.
On August 20-21 the Dharma Festival will begin with Rinpoche and his Monks and Nuns performing a two day healing Chod. Rinpoche is famous for his Healing Chod. This Healing Chod is beneficial for all, Buddhists and non Buddhists. There are many physical, mental and spiritual benefits to receiving the Healing Chod and some people have received miraculous healing's.
On Monday, August 22, Rinpoche will give the pewang and teach on his Pure Vision Chod practice. This will be the first time Rinpoche has given detailed teachings on his concise pure vision Chod practice entitled The Spontaneous Vajra Song. Rinpoche will give teachings on the stages of visualization for this practice and his monks and nuns will help teach practitioners how to use the bell, drum and thighbone trumpet. Rinpoche will give the pewang for this practice which will authorize practitioners to do this practice. If you have ever wanted to do Rinpoches Chod practice this is your opportunity. The text for this practice has been translated and will be available.
On Tuesday, August 23, Rinpoche will give the pewang and teachings on a Pure Vision White Tara practice he received while in San Diego on last years tour. This practice is called "The Brief and Essentialized Practice of the Vital Energy of White Tara, Mother of Life." This is a profound and beautiful White Tara practice and has only been given rarely since Rinpoche received this Pure Vision.
On August 24-25, Rinpoche will give his Dechen Karmo Yeshe Tsogyal empowerment and teachings, which is one of the most important practices in Rinpoches treasure cycle. Of the Three Roots this is his main Dakini practice and this is the first time outside of his Monastery in India that this has been given.
On August 26-28, Rinpoche will give the Nyingtig Yabshi Pewang, which gives permission to entire into the Nyingtig Yabshi cycle of practices. Rinpoche will be teaching on a text from the Lama Yangtig, entitled "Stainless Space". This text is extremely important for anyone who wishes to practice Dzogchen. Rinpoche has not taught on this before. Of this text, Longchenpa writes, "The trechod appendix, "Stainless Space", causes one to be free of hope and fear without anything to be done." This text contains essence teachings on View, Meditation, and Conduct. As Longchenpa writes, it gives the "essential points of the practice of great original purity, the nature of things." Contained within this text our essential teachings on the practice of Trechod, Dream Yoga, and Chulen. Needless to say, to have Rinpoches commentary on this practice will be the greatest of blessings. The Stainless Space text, which was previously untranslated, will also be available at these teachings.
So we hope those who have come to the previous Green Mountain Dharma Festivals as well as other teachings we have had before with Rinpoche in VT will be able to come. The location for the Dharma Festival will be 2 Elm St. in Bristol, VT. We have had many requests for Community Housing so if you need this type of housing please let us know ASAP. Inexpensive camping with bathroom and shower facilities is also available. The Retreat Housing Link on our home page www.ddcv.com will take you to other housing options close to the teachings.
