“Tergar Asia 8-Day Retreat”: A highlight of Mingyur Rinpoche’s 2017 Teaching Tour
Eight days of Mingyur Rinpoche’s essential mind teachings
During his retreat in the Himalayas, Mingyur Rinpoche focused mainly on one practice – nature of mind.
Day to day, Mingyur Rinpoche still practises meditation as it is taught in the Joy of Living programme, for the essence of meditation is awareness.
Both Joy of Living and the nature of mind practices go to the heart of Mingyur Rinpoche’s teachings. And they will be the two main programmes on offer at the “Tergar Asia 8-Day Retreat”. As Rinpoche often tells his students: these are some of the best ways to practice.
If Mingyur Rinpoche inspires you, come discover for yourself the essence of his teachings. Learn to recognize awareness, unlock your compassion and wisdom, and realize nature of mind – this is a path of practice that will lead you to find the boundless riches of your own nature. During the eight-day retreat, Rinpoche will illuminate the core teachings and methods, guiding us towards progress in our practice.
Forgetting to meditate is the only obstacle to meditation, Mingyur Rinpoche says. If you haven’t forgotten it, perhaps you have the small problem Rinpoche often speaks of: being busy and lazy. If so, this retreat is for you: let Rinpoche guide you through eight days of intensive work to listen, contemplate and practice.
The ”Tergar Asia 8-Day Retreat” is the highlight of Mingyur Rinpoche’s 2017 Teaching Tour in Asia. It is open to all who wish to realize their own nature in order to benefit all beings (subject to entry requirements for some of the courses). Places are very limited. Please check Tergar Asia’s and local Tergar communities’ social media platforms regularly for updates on registration and other details.
