An Online Study of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche: Magic Dance

I bow to my own Wisdom Mind
Which is my best wisdom teacher,
The source of all visible and invisible qualities
Thinley Norbu Rinpoche

Ordinarily, we remain ignorant about the nature of reality and as such her nature is hidden to us, leaving us suffering in confusion. For the yogi who is free of such confusion, and realises wisdom mind, reality is the magic dance of the five wisdom dakinis. The author of this work- Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011) was throughout two successive incarnations, the physical and spiritual heir to the respective lineages of Dudjom Lingpa and his immediate rebirth Dudjom Rinpoche. Thinly Norbu Rinpoche became one of the greatest expounders of Buddhism in the modern world. Magic Dance was written in the early 1980s when Rinpoche began teaching in Europe and the USA. It remains a classic celebration of, and instruction in, the exceptional Vajrayana view and path to enlightenment.

Practical aspects of online courses:
Students are requested to read sections of the text prior to the scheduled class. During the session Jakob unpacks and summarizes the text using a live PowerPoint presentation which is visible on the participant's computer. This format enables anyone to participate regardless of location.
Participants also have an option to download both audio and video recordings of the lesson if they are unable to join in real-time, and may review and download any session as often as required.
