The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra

with Karl Brunnhölzl



We are very happy that → Karl Brunnhölzl will give us teachings on the “ Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra.

The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra, one of the most famous and often-recited Dzogchen texts, is a uniquely profound prayer because it simultaneously takes place on two distinct levels and also serves as an immediate practice instruction.

Conventionally speaking, it appears to be an aspiration prayer by the primordial buddha Samantabhadra for all sentient beings to recognize the nature of their mind and thus become buddhas. Actually, however, it is an aspiration prayer of this very nature of the mind—the primordial basic awareness (rigpa) that is called “Samantabhadra”—to recognize itself, “its own face,” or its own essence, which is nothing other than beginningless perfect buddhahood. Thus, it is a wake-up call by our own buddha nature to be revealed as it is by way of seeing through its adventitious fleeting obscurations.

During this weekend, we will explore the profound view of Dzogchen, how ignorance and afflictions arise, and how the five main mental poisons can be recognized as the five buddha wisdoms.
