Vast View – Great Love

Queenstown Dharma Centre 12 Lake Street, Queenstown

Lama Mark Webber brings over forty years of study, practice and teaching, helping to understand both the cause of suffering states and their cessation — a path of freedom, compassion and innate happiness. Always classically grounded in Buddhism and science, using diverse methods, often with humour, he illuminates the most essential points of all Buddhist teachings and meditations. No matter what kind of state, positive or negative: confused, emotionally upset, anxious or happy, dull, joyous, sick or angry, the very basis of all of our experience is unobstructed, luminous and pervaded with great love. The meditations that will be introduced will reveal our mind to be naturally free of all artifice, the ground of all of our experience, called Buddha-nature, Dzogchen, Mahamudra, etc. It is an all pervasive compassionate awakeness, known as bodhicitta. The teachings and meditations introduced will help reveal this essential innate mind.

Sustainable happiness and deep compassion will not be found in chasing and grasping after outer objects, people, places and things. So too, no matter how fascinating, intelligent our thoughts and ideas are they mask the pervasive continuum of awake mind. Naturally at ease in our own skin, vividly awake, abiding in our mind’s basis — inclusive all of experience — is the meditation. Whether day or night, daily life, retreat or no-retreat, bringing bodhicitta, the mind of enlightenment, to all we do, feel, think and sense for the awakening of all.

Lama Mark builds confidence in bodhicitta, opening up a love of Dharma, mentoring in developing a high level of capacity — strength — through listening, study, reflection and meditation to approach and become familiar with luminous awareness. Then comes the instructions to break-through to reveal this fundamental essence. It is like parting clouds with blazing sun and moon light. With enough capacity, we will know for sure that this natural pervasiveness is the meditation and conduct in every facet of life. This describes the heart of Lama Mark’s guidance and teachings.

Tranquility and Dzogchen

Glentui Meadows, New Zealand 140 Glentui Bush Road, Ashley Gorge 7495

Lama Mark will teach various forms of tranquility meditation infused with love and compassion. This will help beginners and experienced practitioners alike, as a preparation to entering the view, meditation and conduct of Dzogchen.

Empowerment & Teachings on the Medicine Buddha: Revealing Primordial Wisdom and Health

Calle la Reforma #6, Jardines de Antigua Calle la Reforma #6, Jardines de Antigua, Antigua

The transmission of Medicine Buddha, formally known as King of Medicine Master and of Lapis Lazuli Light is a profound manifestation of primordial wisdom to cure the origin of suffer- ing states. The meditation practice is for both revealing our continuum of innate pure mind and the vast luminosity of compassion, and helping with serious health issues. Lama Mark received this transmission of Lama Karma Chagme (17th cent.) many times with teachings and retreats from the Ven. Karma Dorje Namgyal Rinpoche.

The Six Perfections— Great Love in Union with Emptiness

“Traditionally the Parami are literally the “completions” or “perfections” that we develop for carrying us across to full awakening or liberation. In order to go safely and do well on a long mountain trek we first train and we must have the appropriate good food to sustain our journey. So too, we need to strengthen our capacity to liberate us and all others through the profound study and practice of the Parami. These six Parami of—generosity, ethics, patience, energy, meditative concentration and wisdom—form the foundation and capacity for us to journey and explore along all Buddhist paths of Liberation.

Lama Mark will be teaching from the text called the Three Statements that Strike the Vital Point, also called The Words of Garab Dorje, Patrül Rinpoche’s root text and auto-commentary, Lho Ontül Rinpoche’s recent teachings and meditation instructions and Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche’s teachings on this profound approach to full awakeness and compassion.
