Anton with kyentse6




I am following Dharma pathway for the last 20 years. My first contact with Buddhist doctrine was already in age of early twenties. Serious study of the Dharma and developing understanding and awareness about the path started with v. Alak Tsava Rinpoche giving me empowerment and oral transmission on White Tara. When visiting Croatia, v. Ayang Rinpoche gave a series of lectures together with practical instructions to different meditation practices. From him I received empowerment and reading transmission on Phowa with instructions. Next I have been blessed with Amithaba empowerment following with empowerment on Avalokiteshvara practice. From Great Dzogchen 14. Ganor Rinpoche I have received DorSem Wang, empowerment into mandala of Buddha Vajrasattva, Red Yamantaka Yidam (Dorjee Jigje Marpo), Tse-pa Me Tse-wang“, empowerment on Amitayusa, and empowerment on Medicine Buddha (Sangye Menla Yidam), and at the end the mahakala empowerment. Ven. Gangten Trulku Rinpoche blessed me with empowerment into practice of Guru Padmasambhava in „Pema Tho Treng Tsal aspect, as well as instructions into preliminary practice „Ngon-dro“ according to the script „Kun-Sang-dgongs-pa-kun-dus, and gave special blessings and oral transmission „Lung“ on Dzogchen from Longchen Rajampa. Since year 2010, I became a regular member of the Shechen Sangha in Croatia ( and have finished 6 years of study in Bodhgaya,out of the 9-year programme. Our precious teacher have blessed us with empowerments on Rangjung Pema Nyingthik, Pema Tse Nyingthik, and further teachings on development stage of Vajrayane (kyerim) based on dakini practice coming from Pema Tse Nyingthik of Supreme gift of immortality. My only wish is to continue and develop my Dharma practice.


My name is Anton Florijan Barisic, and I live in Zagreb. I am working as lecturer at the University for Applied Sciences and consider myself as very happy being having such a possibility to study and practice Dharma. I’m member of the Croatian Shechen Sangha wher i perform different activities aimed to ensure work and development of the sangha. My small family is also dedicated to the Dharma. From the first time I have been blessed with the opportunity to meet precious master Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, I knew that I found my teacher. As from that time my devotion to my teachers and Budhist doctrine is increasing and I would like to develop myself in the way to better understand the teachings and practice and become experienced practitioner. According to the personal wish and blessings of Dilgo Kyentse Yangtsi Rinpoche I took over the responsibility to lead groups of practice on Pema Tse Nyingthik, the supreme gift of deathlessness and the destiled Essence of Immortality. For some time I prepare myself to take part in the translation of the teachings and books of our precious masters on Croatian language giving the opportunity to all the people not understanding English, to have opportunity to hear, read and study Dharma.

I would like to attend 7th year of Shechen Seminar in Bodhgaya, in first half of December 2017, and continue to receive empowerments and teaching based on Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche’s termas and therewith deepen and improve my practice of Dharma.
