teachings 2010

Actually, in terms of teachings, empowerments, and the annual wandering of the lamas, 2010 is in some respects one of the busiest years on record. There are major events all over Europe, Asia, and the Americas, well into the autumn. 
Other major events are Dilgo Khyentse's centennial, and the world tour of his incarnation, Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche. 
Now, in the old days -- and here I am remembering the late 1960s and early 1970s -- we would make up lists of where the lamas were going to be, and then we would just take off and follow one or more of them all over the globe. In the U.S., the old "circuit" is still in effect -- polished by time -- and there are still people who observe that noble tradition to this very day. If ever you wanted to immerse yourself in teachings, this is the summer to give it a try.
Of course, there is an alternative to all this running around. You can take the empowerments you already have, and the teachings you already have, and actually practice. 

claro em que vez de uma crónica de viagem podem fazer uma crónica alternativa_pegar nos ensinamentos e transmissões que já receberam e pratica-los com verdade.
