The Four Dharmas of Gampopa is an important set of teachings that were made available to us by the great master, Lord Gampopa. He was one of the great fathers of the Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and was the most famous disciple of Milarepa. In the first part of this talk, we unpack the depth and how Gampopa condensed all spiritual teachings into these four profound lines.
In the second part, we explore The Shambhala Lineage Supplication. This chant provides the context for all the Shambhala teachings, and this chant highlights the central teachings. Shambhala is a unique blending of three Tibetan Buddhist lineages of wisdom: Dzogchen, Mahamdura, and Shambhala itself. Shambhala is unique not only in its emphasis on individual enlightenment, but on creating an enlightened society. It offers unique methods that allow one to transform everyday life into a spiritual path. In this talk, we explore Shambhala, it’s root lineages and how they combine to deliver such power and blessing.
