"Meditation and daily life practice are a path of discovery because there is something to be discovered. It is called the Nature of Mind, Buddha Nature or the Indestructible Heart Essence. But what is it? That is what we each have to discover within ourselves. The path is the awakening process by means of which we come to recognise it."

Death and Dying

A Heart of the Buddha Teaching

Feb 2012, Oxford

According to the later Indian tradition of Buddhadharma the person entering the dying process or having passed beyond the moment of death, has the opportunity to become more open to what is real than at any other stage in their lifetime. However this opportunity needs to be fostered by someone who has some practice in developing openness, clarity and sensitivity of heart and mind. This can be done by a helper, or mandala of practitioners. This teaching familiarises practitioners and others with the ways in which these methods can be used.

Available as [CD] + [DVD].

CD (MP3 format) £10.00 + p&p

DVD £24.99 (£17.99 for Longchen members)


Longchen, Longchenpa and the Dzogchen Lineage

A Heart of the Buddha Teaching

Dec 2011, Friends Meeting House, Oxford.

Dzogchen (or Maha Ati) translates as “Great Perfection” and is considered
by the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism as the highest and most
definitive path to enlightenment. Of all the different teachings of the
Buddha, Dzogchen is considered by many Lamas to be the most appropriate for our time.

From the perspective of Dzogchen the ultimate nature of all sentient beings
is said to be pure, all-encompassing, primordial and naturally occurring
timeless awareness. The analogy given by Dzogchen masters is that one’s
nature is like a mirror which reflects with complete openness but is not
affected by the reflections.

Longchen Rabjam (1308-1364), Longchenpa, one of the greatest of Tibetan
scholars and realised masters, was responsible for bringing together many
diverse teachings of Dzogchen and set out a complete foundation for its
study and practice

Karma: Working with our World

Rigdzin  Shikpo

Oxford, October 2010

A Heart of the Buddha Public talk with questions  and answers on Karma from the Dzogchen    perspective

Karma means action. It encompasses all the actions we do with our body, our speech, our mind. We shape our world by the attitudes and actions we have created and performed. What we do is important because it produces results that radiate into the future affecting ourselves and everyone. These results return to us like images in a mirror. Our actions give rise to the world around us and it is within that world of actions that we live our lives. There are many wrong ideas about karma and its results. Rigdzin Shikpo’s talk helps to clarify in great detail the nature of karma and shows how it can help us to understand our world in a meaningful way. It was recorded at Oxford Town Hall in October 2010.

CD (MP3 format) £10.00 + p&p

DVD £24.99 (£17.99 for Longchen members)
