with Lama Mark Webber
April 12 & 13, 2017, Devonport, Auckland
Lama Mark will give two important transmissions and instruction for meditations to extend one’s life’s energies, health, remove obstacles and realise deathlessness (the unbroken continuum of mind’s pristine nature):
1) Empowerment for the long life and deathlessness practice, called:
Subduing the Lord of Death Through Splendour in the Drikung Yangzab Dzogchen lineage. Reading transmission of the meditation practice and explanations.
2) Reading transmission, meditative instructions and explanations for the Yangzab Dzogchen Sun Moon Amulet longevity and deathlessness practice. Also a group session of the practice of the Sun-Moon Amulet.
The Drikung Yangzab Dzogchen lineage is a complete cycle of teachings and practices given to Prince Mutik Tsepo by Padmasambhava in Tibet during the 8th century. It was copied down on a series of coloured scrolls by Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal and the King’s son Mutik Tsepo and hidden away. In the early 16th century the prince’s emanation, Gyalwang Rinchen Puntsok (1509-1557) the current throne holder of the Drikung Kagyu lineage revealed the entire cycle. This lineage is unbroken in transmission, instruction and practice to this day.
About Lama Mark:
Lama Mark (Lama Karma Tenpa Lekshe Yongdu) has been studying and teaching Buddha-dharma for forty years. For thirty years his main root teacher was the great Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche who taught all three cycles of the Buddha’s teachings, including Abhidhamma, Vipassana in the lineage of Mahāsi Sayādaw, generation and completion stage practices of the Tantrayana and Mahamudra/Dzogchen of many lineages, especial-ly of the Karma Kagyu. More recently under the guidance and request of H.E. Lho Ontul Rinpoche, a gifted teacher and yogi, Lama Mark has been practicing and teaching the rich-ness of the Drikung Mahamudra and Drikung Yangzab Dzogchen traditions.
Lama Mark has a deep and long term interest and collaboration in a num-ber of scientific fields and the arts which he integrates with the teaching of Buddhism. His compassionate activities demonstrate a profound commitment to freeing beings from innumerable suffering states. Lama Mark’s emphasis with practitioners and students is on uncovering pure Dharma to reveal its extraordinary benefits and share the great joy of its deep study, meditative practices and integration into all aspects of our lives.
