Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

We are deeply delighted that Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has agreed to share his profound wisdom with the global sangha through five days of teaching on the topic of Buddha Nature. These teachings will be streamed live from November 20th - 24th. We are fortunate to come together to receive these precious instructions at this unique time—how wonderful to digitally gather as a harmonious mandala of Rinpoche’s students!

Rinpoche has kindly agreed to make these teachings available online for students across the world. They will be streamed for registered users live in English on DharmaSun and in multiple languages via Zoom. 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 is open to all.
2. Buddha Nature: Part Two is open to those who have previously attended a seminar with Rinpoche in Nepal or abroad, who have attended an online seminar with Rinpoche, who are engaged in the First Excellence of Tara’s Triple Excellence, or those who attend the entirety of the first three days of this year’s seminar, Buddha Nature: Part One.

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, Russian, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
