Garchen Rinpoche



Mahamudra in the Drikung Kagyu Tradition derives via Marpa from both the lineage stemming from Tilopa as well as from Maitripa. On this basis Gampopa developed a path consisting of five parts. Phagmodrupa gave this system of Teachings the title “Five-Fold Path of Mahamudra,” and Jigten Sumgön taught Mahamudra making Mahamudra the central practice of the Drikung Kagyu tradition.

What an extraordinary opportunity to practice a Mahamudra retreat together with one of the greatest yogic masters, H. E. Garchen Rinpoche! During the retreat we shall have a rare opportunity to connect with Garchen Rinpoche in a very close and personal exchange of experience, e. g. to ask questions about practical experience. So that we can immerse ourselves as deeply as possible in the experience. H. E. Garchen Rinpoche will open up to us the five verses of the Spiritual Song "Five-fold Profound Path of Mahamudra" by Lord Jigten Sumgön. At the beginning of the retreat Rinpoche will bestow a Milarepa initiation on us.
