Phakchok Rinpoche Will Teach on The Bardos on July 24th

Samye is happy to announce that Phakchok Rinpoche will teach on The Bardos on Saturday, July 24th, at 5:45pm, Nepal time (check your local time here). This teaching, on the full moon day of the monkey month, auspiciously coincides with the anniversary of the great master, Gampopa. It is an offering to all who are interested in learning how to experience a noble death. Rinpoche will teach on the six bardos and will address our general concerns on preparing for the moment of death and what comes next.

This teaching will be in English, and we will provide live translation for Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.

The teaching will occur on Zoom. We will share additional details about the teachings later in the month.

Register for this teaching here.
