Summer Seminar Part One
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. The Summer Seminar will stream live from August 25th through September 4th (August 30th and 31st are break 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 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) Summer Seminar Part One: Introduction to Buddhism: View, Meditation, Conduct, Fruition (four days of teaching, one day of Ngakso practice) is open to all.

2) Summer Seminar Part Two: Secret Keypoints of Mahamudra, Dzogchen, and the Middle Way (four days of teaching) is open to those who:
a) have attended all of Part One of this seminar; or
b) have previously attended any full seminar with Rinpoche, either online, or in person, or
c) have started, or are genuinely about to start the Second Excellence, (First Excellence must be finished already), or
d) have started ngondro or are genuinely about to start ngondro

The Summer 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.
