Naturally Liberating Whatever you Meet
Instructions to Guide You on the Profound Path
A teaching by Ven. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche
In 1958, Communist armies invaded Kham in Tibet, destroying monasteries and imprisoning monks. The previous summer, Khenpo Gangshar foresaw that the difficulties in Tibet were going to escalate. To help dharma practitioners in Tibet progress rapidly on the path so they could meet these challenges skillfully, he gave this teaching on Naturally Liberating Whatever You Meet. Thrangu Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche received this profound cycle of teachings, which describe how to progress rapidly by engaging with practice whatever happens to you. It includes advice on the wisdom of emotions, and taking the bardo state as well as sleep as the path.
Only a few people who actually received this teaching remain alive; it is a rare opportunity for us to host Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, who received this teaching, and who can transmit to us the wisdom of being able to work with whatever comes to us in life.
