Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

We are delighted that Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has agreed to share his profound wisdom with the global sangha through eight days of teaching on the topic of Buddha Nature. The 41st Annual Seminar will be streamed live from November 13th through November 21st. (November 18th is a break day.) We are fortunate to come together to receive these precious instructions at this unique time—how wonderful to gather digitally as a mandala of Rinpoche’s students!

The teachings will be streamed for registered users live in English on DharmaSun and in multiple languages via Zoom. Recordings will be posted on DharmaSun shortly after each live session. However, all registrants are required to listen to Rinpoche's teachings in sequential order.

The seminar will be divided into two segments:

1. Buddha Nature: Part One (5 days) is open to all.

2. Buddha Nature: Part Two (3 days) is open to those who:

a) have attended all of Part One of this seminar; or
b) have finished at least The First Excellence of Tara’s Triple Excellence, or
c) have previously attended any full seminar with Rinpoche, either online, or in person.

The Annual RYI seminar offers a unique opportunity for students of all levels—from beginners to advanced practitioners—to receive rare and precious teachings from one of the world’s most esteemed Buddhist masters. We therefore ask that you share this opportunity with all those who might be interested in joining online.

Rinpoche will teach in Tibetan, and there will be translation into Chinese, English, German, Nepali, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Russian, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
