Dzogchen Teachings with Lama Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche

In this intimate and engaging teaching, Lama Dawa gives a reading tranmission and a translation on-the-fly, along with commentary on the text, “DAM-NGAG MAR-GYI YANG-ZHUN;” a terma revelation by Dorje Lingpa. This special teaching is of the genre of ‘liberation upon hearing’ in which Padmasambhava claimed one could become liberated from the three lower realms by hearing this teaching three times. The teaching is followed by a lively discussion and question and answer period, and also includes Lama Dawa bestowing the lung two more times so that participants would hear this three times. This teaching was given to a small group in Sonoma, CA in 2008.
