Lama Sangye Mönlam continues his course on the Ma Gyud (Bön mother tantra) in Graz; the next date is: April 19-25, 2014.
The topic in 2014 will be Tummo. Ma Gyud is the ultimate source of all Bön tummo texts (in particular, of the tummo instructions in Shardza Rinpoche's Kusum Rangshar). Even if you are familiar with the tummo chapter of Kusum Rangshar, you will learn something new when Lama Sangye teaches Tummo based on the Ma Gyud. As in the previous years, Lama Sangye will teach in Tibetan language and 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. Since Tummo is a relatively advanced technique, however, you should have had Ngöndro teachings, and practiced at least some Ngöndro, before you learn Tummo. There will be an opportunity to learn Ngöndro from Lama Sangye Monlam in Vienna, Nov 1-3, 2014. Also, Lama Sangye will give an introduction to the Ma Gyud in Vienna, Nov 9-10, 2013. Attending either or both of these weekend courses in Vienna and practising what you learn there until April fulfills the prerequisites for the Tummo course in April.

Very auspicious news: on request of the students of Lama Sangye's Ma Gyud course, Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak Rinopche will give a Ma Gyud empowerment in Shenten in Aug 10-11, 2013.
