Heart Treasures of the Victorious One,
a one month retreat with Bonni Ross and Matthew Eades
Beyond Space; Beyond Time
We craft the future in every moment. New dimensions emerge from this very present, informed by infinite moments of all sentient life. The Namgyal vibration seeds each new dispensation of Buddhadharma in the world, and in each individual. The essence of the Namgyals invigorates the past, transcends forms and spaciously embraces the new.
It is our opportunity to nurture and develop this precious gift. A practice text revealed in stages by Namgyal Rinpoche in 1974 will open us to universal love and clear-seeing. We will also draw from the Teaching Dharma Treasury, a body of work Rinpoche offered in consecutive retreats at The Dharma Centre of Canada in the summer of 2003, just a few months before he passed away.
This retreat is offered by Bonni and Matthew in gratitude to their root teacher, Venerable Namgyal Rinpoche. As a person, he was an enigma of contradictions and as a presence, an unfathomable vastness. We are all the beneficiaries of his great vow of compassion for all beings, his vast mind, impeccable respect for the breadth and depth of enlightenment expressed throughout all times and cultures, his efforts to preserve the living legacy of the Buddha’s teachings, his passionate engagement with this spectacular planet, his boundless creativity and ability to communicate directly to us with humour and graceful intellect. May we, through diligent practice, embody these qualities in the womb of now
This work is particularly suited to those with ample training and experience who are called to share their experience of Buddhadharma with others. In addition, mature practitioners, with wholesome minds, well-balanced emotions and physical bodies able to cope with the rigours of Wangapeka terrain are welcome to attend.
