The Six Bardos and the Nature of Mind

Menri Shedrup Khenpo Geshe Nyima Dhondup Rinpoche

The Bardo is a Tibetan Buddhist concept roughly translated as “thrown between.” Also called the Intermediate State, the Bardo arises between death and the next life.  It is said to be much like dream, sleep, and deep meditative states, when the edges of our reality blur, and forms, images, sounds, our sense of ourselves and duality diminish, yet presence remains.
The Bardo presents both a challenge to ordinary consciousness and an opening to the possibility of enlightenment.

Khenpo Nyima Dhondup Rinpoche will explore the Bardo with us. This weekend offers an opportunity to receive precious teachings from a high lama to help us prepare for this transition time.

Menri Shedrup Khenpo Geshe Nyima Dhondup Rinpoche

Menri Shedrup Khenpo Geshe Nyima Dhondup Rinpoche is the current Abbot of the Bön Dialectic School at Menri Monastery in Dolanji, India. He was born in 1978 in Delhi, India. His birth name, Tsering Dhondup, was given to him by Tsondue Rinpoche, one of the greatest Bön masters in 20th century. After completing over 15 years of study of Bön Sutra, Tantra, Dzogchen and the five major and minor sciences of Bön tradition, Nyima Rinpoche received his Geshe Degree in the spring of 2006. In 2008 Rinpoche was enthroned as Menri Shedrup Lopon, the principal master of the Bön Dialectic School at Menri Monastery. In February of 2012 he was enthroned as the Menri Shedrup Khenpo, the Abbot of the Bön Dialectic School.

Rinpoche has been teaching Bön Sutra, Tantra and Dzogchen to Bön Dialectic students for more than 15 years and he has been an invited speaker at several major Bön and Buddhist conferences. He has also contributed several articles for Bon-sGo, the journal in Tibetan of Menri Monastery in India and the Himalayan Bön website in Tibet. Khenpo Nyima Dhondup Rinpoche has taken on the additional responsibilities of General Secretary of the Governing Council of Menri Monastery, and since 2011, Director of the official website of Menri Monastery (www.theyungdrungbon.com). In 2014, he visited Tibet and blessed many Bon followers and practitioners.

Rinpoche is the author of the books ‘Rigs sMa dGyes Pi mChod Trin’, (Offerings to Rejoice the Great Scholars), ‘Man-ngag Lung gi Yang Zhun, sTod Cha’ and ‘sMad Cha’ (A Clear Oral Transmission of the Sacred Instruction, Parts 1&2) and ‘Yungdrung gi Tson Dhon’ (Illustration on the Meaning of Yungdrung). These three books cover the main philosophical teachings in Bön tradition.
