The sixth NyingmaNet session featured Ralph McFall interviewed by Abbe about the history and plans for Dharma Publishing and DP Academy. Andis Egle led us through an invigorating Kum Nye Dancing practice: Leaving the Corral You Have Created for Yourself, and Elske interviewed Hugh Joswick, managing editor of Gesar, the Nyingma Mandala magazine. (You can subscribe here). Claudio Mendes Moraes from the Nyingma Center in Rio de Janeiro led the protective Vajra Armor Mantra chant.
Next session, NyingmaNet #7, coming up Friday May 29, will be the last session before summer break. Here is the tentative program #7:
- Jack Petranker on lineage
- A short film on the Planting Seeds of Healing Project that happened recently in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, followed by an interview with Rita Toledo on the project.
- Future of NyingmaNet, after a break until August 7
- Reading of a Longevity Prayer for Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche written by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
- Lama Palzang leads an Invocation of Padmasambhava and a longevity chant for Rinpoche
