Rigdzin Düpa (Assembly of Awareness Holders) is an inner Lama practice from the Longchen Nyingtik tradition, which is one of the most important Nyingma Dzogchen systems. The practice comes from a terma text discovered and taught by Jigme Lingpa (1730-1798).

The powerful practice of Rigdzin Düpa helps us overcome our ingrained habitual patterns to dwell in the nature of our mind.
According to the Dzogchen tradition, visualization is generated instantaneously rather than gradually, so that the ordinary process of perception of our mind is interrupted. With the cessation of ordinary perception, which is clouded with thoughts and emotions, the original clarity, our pure awareness (rigpa), emerges.

If we manage to rest in this pure awareness, which is empty in its essence and emerges as clarity according to its nature, our enlightened qualities will fully emerge. By progressively revealing our Buddha nature beyond the conceptual mind, our inherent all-pervading compassion is strengthened, enabling us to support all beings in the greatest way possible.

Prerequisites for participation

The retreat is aimed at:

  • Students of Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche
  • Participants of the course on the ‘Treasury of Precious Qualities’ by Jigme Lingpa given by Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche in different places.
  • Students of the Longchen Shedra
  • All sincere practitioners of Vajrayana who have a deep desire to learn about and exercise this practice.

For inquiries as to whether participation is appropriate, please contact the following email address: info@dolpotulku.org

The seminar costs are 230 EUR / 200 EUR reduced (for members, students, unemployed or retired people).

People with the financial capacity are invited to donate 10 Euros extra. With this money we try to support people with less financial freedom to enable their participation.

For people without financial resources there is the possibility to reduce participation fee after verification by Dolpo Tulku e.V. and Rinpoche himself. In exchange we ask for assistance during the retreat.

For all those who do not yet have texts, there will be extra costs for practice materials of about 20 Euros.

Furthermore we want to point out that retreat costs only cover our expenses (travel costs for teachers/translators, rental fees, preparation, text creation)

To acknowledge the effort of Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche and his translator, it would be nice, if participants could bring a certain amount as Dana. Thank you very much!

Please transfer the participation fee no later than 01st of November 2023 to the account of Dolpo Tulku e.V.. Only after receipt of payment, we can bindingly confirm your participation.

Like most traditional retreat houses, Retreathaus Berghof e.V. depends on its visitors’ assistance (so costs can be held as low as possible). Therefore every participant is asked to contribute about 45 to 60 minutes per day, assisting in everyday work in the kitchen and around the house.

Naturally, these periods are adapted to our retreat schedule.

Texts and ritual items (if you have), slippers, comfortable clothes for yoga and meditation, beautiful clothes for empowerment, personal toiletries, towels and bed linen are available at extra charge.

Participation in this retreat is at your own risk. The organizer, Dolpo Tulku e.V., as well as the instructor shall accept no liability for any personal injury and damage to property, caused on the occasion of course participation. Intensive meditation retreats are often not suitable for people with a history of psychiatric illness. In case of doubt, we ask for consultation in advance.
