Teachings with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, Dublin Writers' Museum, May 23/24 2009.

During his visit to Dublin, Rinpoche taught on
Lojong: The 7 Points of Mind Training,
at Kagyu Samye Dzong, Kilmainham.

In the middle of those teachings came
the weekend at the Writers'Museum
where the topic was

is Devoid of Mind,
The Nature of Mind is Clear Light.

Rinpoche took the opportunity to teach and bring together a number
Of deep teachings on the Buddha Nature.
He interwove the section from the Lojong on Ultimate Bodhichitta
And the Nature of Mind with the Clear Light topic for the weekend.
Rinpoche also took one day to give a precious commentary of his own
On the Oral Instruction of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. This is a Pith
Instruction - a Dzogchen/Mahamudra mengak - which speaks about
The direct experience of resting in the Buddha Nature itself. The text
of the Instruction was taken from p293/294 of Dilgo Khyentse
Rinpoche's autobiography, Brilliant Moon.

The teachings culminated in Rinpoche offering a direct personal
blessing to everyone who attended the weekend. The event was jointly
orgainised and attended by Bodhicharya Ireland, Kagyu Samye Dzong
and Rigpa. There were many other dharma students in attendance
including practitioners from Jampa Ling, Cavan and Shambhala,
Dublin. We were also delighted to welcome members of the
Tibetan and Mongolian communities in Ireland.
We very much look forward to organising another weekend of
teachings with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in 2010.

Over the June bank holiday weekend, Rinpoche also taught in
Dzogchen Beara, West Cork, on the 'Quintessential Practice Unifying
Mahamudra and Mahasandi', a profound teaching from
Karma Chagme, the 16th century master of Dzogchen and Mahamudra.
