Public Talk: What is Enlightenment?

A Heart of Buddha Talk and Live Stream with Rigdzin Shikpo

Sat Feb 29 2020 @ 1:00 pm 7:00 pm

Rigdzin Shikpo, author of “Openness Clarity Sensitivity” and “Never Turn Away”, was authorised by Trungpa Rinpoche as lineage holder of the Mahamudra Maha-Ati tradtion. In 1975 Trungpa Rinpoche established the Longchen Foundation in consultation with HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and together they appointed Rigdzin Shikpo as Dharma Director and spiritual leader. After Trungpa Rinpoche’s death Rigdzin Shikpo received further Dzogchen instructions from Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and finished a 3 year retreat under his guidance. Khenpo Rinpoche gave him the title of Rigdzin Shikpo in honour of his realisation meaning knowledge holder (vidyadhara in sanskrit) beyond concepts.

Heart of Buddha is a series of open talks by Rigdzin Shikpo that present the Maha-Ati teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is relevant and accessible to Western students.
