Teleconference with Bodhi Path Teacher Khaydroup
Newcomers and beginners are always welcome. Topic: Bodhi Path Zoom Meeting (The Path to Awakening) About the book: The Path to Awakening is a book written by Shamar Rinpoche. "The Buddha gave many different teachings and instructions according to the abilities and propensities of his students. The methods vary in levels of difficulty and of accomplishment, but among the countless Dharma practices, Lojong (the basis of the Seven Points of Mind Training) is the superlative discipline. It is as Priceless as a perfect diamond. It's worth cannot be measured because it is the very key that opens the inner door to enlightenment."- Shamar Rinpoche The page numbers given refer to the paperback version of the book. Homework Prep for both the East and West Coast Teachings: reading and contemplating the material ahead of the class is a wonderful way to get the most out of the teachings. If any questions arise during your homework sessions, you might write them down and ask them in the online class or live chat box of the Zoom window. This meeting: Pages[masked] In November we covered the first half of The Fourth Point, “Implement Mind Training in This Life”. We discussed at length the first slogan, “The instructions condensed into their essence: Train in the five powers”, but ran out of time and did not get to the second slogan regarding the instructions on preparing for death and dying. So we will continue with the second slogan, “The Great Vehicle teachings on death are the five powers themselves; your conduct is critical”. The teachings on how to prepare for death are vital and we could spend months and years on these teachings. I recommend reading books, such as “The Bardo Guidebook” by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, and “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying” by Sogyal Rinpoche, both of which are excellent, but the latter is perhaps more easily accessible. About the teacher: Impressed by her colleagues, many of whom were students of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Khaydroup began to study and practice the Buddha's teachings in earnest. In 1990, during a three month stay in India, many auspicious events led Khaydroup straight to the monastic community of the late Gendun Rinpoche in the Auvergne Region of France where she had the good fortune to be guided in two consecutive traditional Three Year retreats by this highly respected meditation master. After completing her second retreat in 1997, Khaydroup joined the women's monastery and began teaching the Dharma in centers, schools and organizations in Europe and in the USA. At the request of the 14th Shamarpa, Khaydroup moved back to the US in 2000 to be a resident teacher at the Santa Barbara Bodhi Path Center. During the two years she was there, she helped found both the San Luis Obispo Bodhi Path and West Los Angeles Bodhi Path Centers. The West Los Angeles group moved to Pasadena in 2004 where Khaydroup continues as the resident teacher.
