Course Content:

We will follow the exposition by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in Pure Appearance: Development and Completion Stages in Vajrayana Practice.
The four binding forces are the force of appearances as the deity; the force of mantra and prana; the unchanging view; and application of activities.
The discussion will be enriched by references from the Vidyadhara.

Pure Appearance is a compendium of talks by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in Boulder, Colorado, in June 1987. Available from the Nalanda Translation Committee.

About the Instructors

Under the Vidyadhara’s direction, Loppon Lodro Dorje was head of the Office of Three Yana Studies from 1976 through 1990, which facilitated the meditation practice and study of the three yanas for Vajradhatu students. He was designated Dorje Loppon in 1985, with reference to his responsibility for working with vajrayana students. He also serves as an Acharya under Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. The Sakyong has asked him, along with Acharya Mermelstein, to continue supporting the practitioners of the Kagyü and Nyingma traditions. He is happy to do this, and also likes to promote the vajrayana and Shambhala practices as mutually enhancing.
