Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic the teaching retreat in Wien with Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen had to be canceled. As a substitute the lineage holders of the Aro gTér will provide teachings on the same weekend via Zoom. The times given above refer to the UK time zone. For Central European Time please add one hour.

In this on-line retreat Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen will speak about the different Buddhist vehicles - the Yanas - from the perspective of Dzogchen. It is particularly important to know about the different Yanas in the west because one can hear many different teachings from many different teachers. These teachings might appear to be contradictory and leave one in a state of confusion, which could easily be resolved by having a basic understanding of the different Yanas. It is important to be aware that Buddhism is not a religion of truth but rather a religion of method, where the method takes you to truth. Different Yanas provide radically different methods and it is extremely useful to understand the underlying principle and function of each approach.

Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen will explain the Yanas taking the point of view of Dzogchen where the different Buddhist teachings are divided in the vehicles of Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen. Apart from the formal teachings there will be the opportunity to ask questions for all participants.
