Worldwide Transmission

Anniversary of Padmasambhava Worldwide Transmission Explanation at Tsegyalgar East in person and via call-in: Learn More Follow the WWT here: Also projected in Tsegyalgar East Schoolhouse Gonpa: TE Event Calendar All over the world the Dzogchen Community celebrates the anniversaries of Garab Dorje, Guru Padmasambhava, and Adzom Drugpa, which fall on the 15th day of the first month, the 10th day of the sixth month, and the 25th day of the ninth month, respectively, of the Tibetan lunar calendar. On these days Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives a Guruyoga transmission via webcast at a specific time and with a specific practice for each anniversary. The set times are given below. The numbers in brackets indicate the differences between Greenwich mean time (GMT) and the hours shown. The starting point for the practice of Dzogchen is to receive a ‘Direct Transmission’ from the teacher. ‘Direct Transmission’ is the means by which the teacher introduces us directly to the true nature of our mind: our primordial state. Ideally, it is best to receive the ‘Direct Transmission’ from the teacher in person by attending a retreat, but since this is not always possible, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu also gives ‘Direct Transmission’ via the worldwide web on three occasions each year, corresponding to particular anniversaries in the Dzogchen calendar. This gives new practitioners the means to enter the path of Dzogchen and begin their practice. Explanation and Practice of the Empowerment for the Worldwide Transmission is contained in the GURUYOGA book available from Shang Shung Publications in print and ebook format (English and Italian) Check your time: Tuesday August 1, 2017 17.00 (-10) Hawaii 19.00 (-8) Fairbanks 20.00 (-7) San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver 21.00 (-6) Denver, Salt Lake City, Pagosa Springs, Edmonton 22.00 (-5) Lima, Quito, Chicago, Mexico City 22.30 (-4.30) Caracas, Isla Margarita 23.00 (-4) San Juan, Santiago, New York, Conway, Montreal, Atlanta, Detroit, Havana, Kingston, Indianapolis, Ottawa 00.00 (-3) Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Bermuda Wednesday August 2, 2017 03.00 (0) GMT 04.00 (+1) London, Dublin, Lisbon, Tenerife 05.00 (+2) Rome, Berlin, Oslo, Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Brussels, Geneva, Prague, Salzburg, Stockholm, Budapest, Vienna, Warsaw, Johannesburg 06.00 (+3) Helsinki, Athens, Ankara, Beirut, Jerusalem, Vilnius 07.00 (+4) Moscow, Murmansk, Baghdad 08.00 (+5) ODDIYANA, Islamabad 08.30 (+5.30) Delhi, Bombay 08.45 (+5.45) Kathmandu 09.00 (+6) Thimpu, Dhaka 09.30 (+6.30) Rangoon 10.00 (+7) Bangkok, Jakarta, Saigon 11.00 (+8) Singapore, Beijing, Lhasa, Manila, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Perth 12.00 (+9) Tokyo, Seoul 12.30 (+9.30) Darwin, Adelaide 13.00 (+10) Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne 14.00 (+11) Vladivostock 15.00 (+12) Fiji, Wellington, Auckland, Kamchatka
