Join us at Palri Pema Öd Ling as Khenpo Kunsang Dechen Rinpoche teaches from Patrul Rinpoche’s text, Self-Liberating Meditation. A Profound Method for Attaining Enlightenment according to the Ultimate Great Perfection.
In Tibetan, Gongpa Rangdrol (dgongs pa rang grol), meaning Self-Liberated Wisdom Mind, or Gompa Rangdrol (sgom pa rang grol), Self-Liberating Meditation. Patrul Rinpoche is considered one of the most important figures in the tradition of Dzogchen, or the Great Perfection. Self-Liberating Meditation introduces the theory behind and methods for realizing the nature of mind, and presents practical approaches to dealing with the conceptual mind and afflictive emotions.
