VISION OF EQUALNESS – Online Heart of Buddha Teaching with Rigdzin Shikpo
Heart of Buddha is a series of teachings by Rigdzin Shikpo, open to all. They are a rare opportunity to receive teachings directly from Rigdzin Shikpo.
Whether you are new to meditation or to Buddhism, or even if you have been practising for many years, these teachings present the Maha-Ati teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is relevant and accessible to Western students.
Rigdzin Shikpo chooses a topic that is close to his heart and that he feels important to talk about at that particular occasion, which makes these talks very special and powerful. On this occasion Rigdzin Shikpo will talk about Equalness of Vision. When Rigdzin Shikpo received a blessing from Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche on his 80th birthday Rigdzin Shikpo asked whether Rinpoche has a particular instruction for him and his students and Rinpoche replied Equalness. Equalness is one of the Four Apramanas – the Four Immeasurables.
Rigdzin Shikpo author of “Openness Clarity Sensitivity” and “Never Turn Away” was authorised by Trungpa Rinpoche as lineage holder of the Mahamudra Maha-Ati tradition. In 1975 Trungpa Rinpoche established the Longchen Foundation in consultation with HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and 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.
