Lesson 1 of 22
In Progress

Session One: Introduction by Phakchok Rinpoche and Drupla Sonam

In this series, Drupla Sonam Tsering will provide instructions and commentary on The Four Foundations or Ngöndro practices of the Tukdrup Barché Künsel. Drupla will be teaching on the Seed of Supreme Awakening, the extensive Ngöndro of the Lamé Tukdrup Barché Künsel from Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo. He will begin with an introduction to these foundational practices and will explain why they are fundamental to Vajrayana practice.

In this introductory session, we are joined by Phakchok Rinpoche, who teaches on the importance of the Ngöndro to Buddhist practitioners. He emphasizes that these practices are not basic, they are the heart essence of all Buddhist practices, particularly the Vajrayana path. Please join us as Drupla continues to explain these profound and fundamental practices.

This teaching is part of Phakchok Rinpoche’s traditional Vajrayana pathway. Learn more about this journey here.
