Phowa Khandro from the Ma Gyud

Bön mother tantra: Phowa teachings from the Ma Gyud by Lama Sangye Monlam in Graz, Austria, March 26 - April 1, 2015

Lama Sangye Mönlam continues his comprehensive course on the Ma Gyud (Bön mother tantra) in Graz with a week of Phowa teachings March 26 - April 1, 2015.

The Ma Gyud has a particularly rich and detailled chapter on Phowa - the practice for the moment of death. Even if you are familiar with other Phowa instructions from the Bön tradition, such as Atri Phowa or Rainbow Tent Phowa, you will learn something new when Lama Sangye teaches Phowa based on the Ma Gyud. As in the previous years, Lama Sangye will read the original Ma Gyud root text (Guro N\"ontse's terma) and comment upon it in Tibetan language. He will be skillfully interpreted into English by Dr. Peter Alan Roberts.

Prerequisites: New students are welcome to join - having attended Lama Sangye's previous Ma Gyud teachings is helpful, but not a prerequisite. Absolute beginners should practice at least some Ngöndro before learnig Phowa.

Intensive practice retreat If there is enough interest, Lama Sangye will guide an intensive Phowa retreat later on (in 2015 or 2016). There we would practice Phowa four times a day (for at least one hour per session) for a week - or until we get signs of success.

More details will be added at a later date.
