Restricted to those who have previously received Trekchöd teachings from a qualified master. It is also best to receive oral transmission (rlung) for the text. Note, there was not originally a requirement that students complete Ngöndro before receiving the teachings for the retreat but Lama Tharchin Rinpoche did recommend it.

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche teaches from Patrul Rinpoche’s "The Special Teaching of the Wise and Glorious King," commentary on the quintessential Dzogchen instruction, "The Three Words that Strike the Vital Essence," the Final Advice of Garab Dorje to Manjushrimitra.

Text: “The Special Teaching of the Wise and Glorious King” by Patrul Rinpoche; text used in the retreat was Eric Pema Kunzang’s translation, Rangjung Yeshe Publications, used with his permission.
