The Practice Of Sengey Tsewa
Sengey Tsewa or The Revelry with the Lion is a particular practice of Prajna Paramita, the Perfection of Great Wisdom. Dakini Machig Labdron offered the teaching of Sengey Tsewa to the Ominiscient One - Kunkhyen Pema Karpo (the Fourth Gyalwang Drukpa 1527-1592) - through his guru, Ava Dhutipa. Ever since then, it has been the main practice of many yogis of Tibetan Buddhism.
The benefits of Sengey Tsewa practice can be categorized into two parts:
- Through the practice of non-attachment (Shunyata) towards one's own body, one will be able to free oneself from sufferings such as diseases and unwanted incidences, and accumulate merits to eventually attain the form of Buddha (Rupakaya).
- Through the practice of non-attachment (Shunyata) towards one's own conceptual thoughts, one will be liberated from the mental distractions and eventually attain the full realization (Dharmakaya) of complete omniscience (Wisdom of Buddha).
For those familiar with the practice of Chod, please bring along your Damaru and Bell. His Holiness will likely be guiding in a few sessions of group practice and meditation.
