Buddha Nature: Part One and Two

Access to this seminar has ended by:

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

We are delighted that Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has agreed to share his profound wisdom with the global sangha through six days of teaching on the topic of Buddha Nature. The previously postponed 40th Annual Seminar will be streamed live from May 1 through May 6.  Rinpoche has generously agreed to one more day of teachings for a total of six days. 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.

If you are already registered for part 1, you will not need to re-register for part 2 again.

Buddha Nature: Part Two is open to those who:

a) have attended the first three days 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.


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