Four Foundations of Mindfullness by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
« on: November 16, 2019, 07:51:10 am »
My introduction to the teachings of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche was by way of a transcript of a teaching he gave on the Four Foundations of Mindfullness.  It was, for me, an amazing text.  I keep a copy of my own and have used it as my practice text for solitary retreat.

Give it a read:

I just wanted to thank you for sharing this text, Chaz -- a wonderful recapitulation of the main points of the path.  Now, putting all this in practice takes lifetimes!

Great post Chaz. I take the Satipatthana Sutta as one of the cornerstones of my practice, and this teaching teases out the main points and delivers a clear structure to mindfulness practice. I downloaded it to study at length.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka
