This direct and important text is not only an aspiration prayer, but also a very profound teaching and an introduction to the Dzogchen approach. The popular and well-known prayer is especially recommended to be recited during special times like earthquakes, eclipses and solstices, utilizing such times as an opportunity for liberation. This eight day Winter Teaching started on a solar eclipse (Monday 14th December 2020), and ended on Winter solstice (Monday 21st December 2020).
During this week of teachings Rinpoche went through the text and provided us with some background and perspective.
These recordings have been restricted to those who either registered for the teaching event or have studied (or commit to study) the Bodhicharyavatara.
