The activities of Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche

This month marks the end of Rinpoche’s Asia tour, the beginning of next month he will be flying to New York to teach Nine Yanas and Mahamudra retreats to his students there. We added many teachings to the wisdom blogs with topics ranging from ritual water offerings to essential teachings on the ground of meditation.  We encourage you to take some time to study and practice the wisdom made available to you in these teachings.

Courses at Samye
The Path of Meditation Level One - Online Study Course
“I’ve attended many meditation retreats and quickly forget what I’ve learned! This course gives me something to refer to and look back on. I have the chance to pick up so many details I’d never be able to remember without repeated hearing.”
~ Anonymous on “The Path of Meditation Level One”
Tukdrub Barché Kunsel Ngöndro: The Four Foundations - Samye Dharma
“Wow, I just watched the videos in Motivation and Intent: Bodhicitta and am blown away. The refuge & bodhicitta practice seems like the entire path condensed into one. You have the lower vehicles with the outer refuge, the greater vehicle with bodhicitta, and the Vajrayana vehicle with inner and secret refuge and bodhicitta. On top of that, there is a shamata training with the visualisation, purifying the winds and channels with the inner refuge in the three roots (as well as the prostrations?), the pinnacle of the path with the resting inseparable from Guru Rinpoche. Wow! I hope I never again look at the hundred thousand prostrations as something to “just get out of the way before the ‘real’ stuff.”
~ Lowell Cook on the “Tukdrub Barché Kunsel Ngöndro: The Four Foundations” online course
Yoga Ãsanas for Mahāmudrā and Sitting Meditation - Samye
“I registered for the Yoga Asanas course, I have been using it these past few months and it is a tremendous aid to my practice. Thank you”
~ Leta Goldwynn on the “Yoga Ãsanas for Mahāmudrā and Sitting Meditation”
The Noble Wisdom of the Time of Death Sutra - Samye Dharma
“Rinpoche’s remarkable energy shines in this course in a very bright way! He brings me systematically back to the core issue. Any single word of this sutra and every single comment by Rinpoche-la are meaningfully essential and practical. What a blessing!”
~ Guido Freddi on the Noble Wisdom of the Time of Death Sutra course.
