Hi, this little bit of audio is a gift for those in Brisbane I didn't get to see on Sept 12th. It is a short discussion about the quote below from Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje. Much Love, Pema.
"For us practitioners of the Secret Mantra, only one supreme instruction is necessary, a single antidote that liberates everything. We must acquire a deep conviction regarding the true nature of phenomena." - In Counsels of My Heart, Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje. p20.

Welcome to Inner Freedom.
Inner Freedom is a podcast and blog that will bring you audio and video (soon) of Dharma discussions by Pema Duddul and Jamyang Tenphel. Jamyang and Pema are practitioners within Tibetan Buddhism. They both hold the vows of a Tantrica or Ngakpa. They have been encouraged to teach by a number of Tibetan Lamas. Although they practice mainly within the Dudjom lineage of the Nyingma school they also have very strong ties to the Drukpa Kagyu, notably the lineage of the great Dzogchen Togden Shakya Shri. Both Jamyang and Pema have received teachings from Lamas of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
Jamyang Tenphel's Tsawai Lama (Heart Teacher) is Togden Amtrin, a highly realised yogi of the Khampagar Drukpa. Sadly Togden Amtrin passed away recently however Jamyang feels his influence and presence on a daily basis. In life Jamyang's main teacher is his illness (post-viral syndrome) which has forced him to abandon all hope for comfort and ease and embrace spontaneity and change.
Pema Duddul's Tsawai Lama is Dudjom Lingpa. Dudjom Lingpa was a Tibetan visionary and saint from the turn of the last century. Pema considers all incarnations of Dujom Lingpa to be his Lamas, principally Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje and Kyabje Dudjom Tenzin Yeshe Dorje Rinpoche of Bhutan. Pema has also benefited greatly from the teachings of a number of Palyul lamas. In life Pema's main teacher is his traumatic childhood which has taught him the importance of facing fear and the joys associated with being an outcast.
Both Jamyang and Pema consider themselves very fortunate to have the following Lamas as teachers: Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Ngakpa Karma Lhundup Rinpoche, and Khandro Thrinley Chodon.
In particular Ngakpa Karma Lhundup Rinpoche and Khandro Thrinley Chodon have been immensely kind to Pema and Jamyang for which they both feel immense gratitude. One of the main goals of this podcast is to connect others to the great Lamas of the Vajrayana and Dzogchen traditions.
