October 24, 25, 26th
Chamma Ling, Crestone, CO Geshe Nyima Kunchap Rinpoche will be visiting Crestone from Dolpo, Nepal, land of ancient Zhang Zhung and Bön, concluding a series of teachings of the Red Garuda. The archetype of the person who rises above all obstacles and obscurations, transforms themselves into an eagle and soars through the sky is found in many cultures throughout the world.
In the Bön tradition, the Garuda holds a special position of importance and reverence as an enlightened yidam, a wisdom being who emanates in forms of each of the five elements. The Red Garuda is associated with the fire element, and the wrathful wisdom that overcomes all obstacles and brings healing, protection, and positive transformation to all beings.
