Five-year course: Relaxing in the Nature of Mind of the Great Perfection
The Great Chariot is an autocommentary on the root text, Relaxing in the Nature of Mind. Along with its companion texts, the Great Chariot presents the complete Buddhist path to awakening covering everything from the common foundations to the practice of the Great Perfection. Intended for the serious Buddhist student, the goal of this five-year course is to cover completely the Relaxing in the Nature of Mind cycle, combining study with practice. There will be an exam after the third course and a final exam at the end of the the fifth year course.
Danakosha Dharma Center
Danakosha Dharma Center is a Dharma community in the lineage and teaching tradition of the Ngagyur Nyingma or Nyingma Early Translation School of Tibetan Buddhism. This community was officially registered in Finland in 2005, under the spiritual direction of Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche.
The original Danakosha is the birthplace of Dzogchen masters Garab Dorje and Mahaguru Padmasambhava, and the source of Dzogchen teachings in this world.
Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche has founded Danakosha Trust, a non-profit organization working to promote and support culture, education and humanity in the Himalaya region, and preserving the ancient Buddhist texts. In the past years we have helped Gegong through building an educational center. In addition we have various ongoing projects.
