The Teachings

These teachings of Padmasambhava, known as the Yangzab terma cycle were revealed in the 17th century by the throne holder of the Drikung, Gyalwang Rinchen Phuntsok. The Yangzab cycle is deeply connected with the more well known Khandro Nyingtig terma cycle, from which so many teachings, commentaries and empowerments were written by Longchenpa and other esteemed masters. Both were found in the same cave above Terdrom in Tibet. These teachings are considered by the Nyingma school of Buddhism to be of the most profound and direct path to Buddhahood, carrying great blessings.


Registration and attendance

Rinpoche will be leading 5 sessions which are best attended as one whole series of teachings. It is also possible to attend sessions individually. Please register here by purchasing tickets to reserve your place. Seating is limited. You may also arrive and register at the door, if space is still available. Please arrive 15 minutes early to settle in, out of respect for the teacher. The $25 for each session is to offset the rental costs for the space.

Donation (Dana) is separate and is In keeping with traditional practice, the Teacher does not charge a fee for teaching but lives by Dana (the generosity of students). Dana is a Buddhist teaching about giving and receiving, about generosity and thankfulness, and the interdependence of all beings. It is not a tip or gratuity and is the teacher's only source of livelihood. It is left up to the participants to assess their own financial circumstances and to give accordingly, as generously as possible.

All are welcome to attend.
