Jigten SumgonSong of the Six Confidences and The Song that Clarifies Recollection by Jigten Sumgonwith Venerable Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche

Sa‌tur‌da‌y, M‌ay 22 & S‌un‌da‌y, M‌ay 23: 11‌:00‌AM – 1‌:00‌PM E‌DT‌

  • Song of the Six Confidences:  Taklung Thangpa, seeing the inconceivable increase of Jigten Sumg6n ‘s activities, sent offerings to him and said, “I have forther teachings given by our guru, Phagmo Drupa; it would be of great benefit if you were to receive these. ” In reply, Jigten Sumgon sent offerings of his own, including this song:
  • The Song that Clarifies Recollection:  Once, when Jigten Sumgon was residing at Drikung Thel, he gathered his students in a meadow behind the monas- tery and asked them to perform displays of their miracle power. All but one was able to comply with their guru’s request, and this disciple, Rinchen Drag, suddenly died from shame. When the undertakers tried to dismember his corpse to feed the vultures, the body resisted the knife. Jigten Sumgon placed his walking stick on the heart-center of the
    corpse, and sang this song.

**  Khenpo Samdup has asked that to attend the teachings, we should have attended one of the following teachings on Zoom: Absolute Manjushri, Ganges Mahamudra, or Guru Rinpoche’s Pointing Out Instructions to the Old Woman. 

**  If you did not attend one of the teachings on Zoom then commit to reciting 10,000 short Vajrasattva mantras, OM BENZAR SATO HUNG.  The mantras can be completed at any time.
