Description

For thousands of years, contemplatives and mystics the world over have experienced the transformative effects of meditation first hand. In the present day, a remarkable collaboration between some of the world’s leading neuroscientists and advanced meditators is beginning to shed new light on this ancient practice.

In this video, meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche and renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson discuss how mental training can help us recondition the mind and rewire the brain to experience wellbeing, compassion, and insight. This remarkable exploration by two of the world’s leading experts on the science of meditation illuminates how transforming the mind through meditation brings about lasting changes in the structure and functioning of the brain.

Dreaming, Dying, Awareness

Description

Purchase Requirement: Mingyur Rinpoche has asked that these teachings only be made available to Tergar students who have received instructions on the bardos.
The teachings of Vajrayana Buddhism offer practical instructions for using every aspect of life as an opportunity for awakening. The experiences of death and dying are said to present a particularly potent gateway to the awakened mind. To prepare for the moment of death, meditators explore the experiences of deep sleep and dreaming by learning to recognize the purity of awareness in the midst of these states of mind. These practices have been preserved for centuries in Tibet in the teachings on the bardos, or intermediate states.
The teachings on this audio recording were originally offered at St. John’s University in the summer of 2016, shortly after Mingyur Rinpoche returned from four and a half years on retreat. Basing his instructions on his own near-death experience while on retreat, he offered practical instructions on exploring dreams and deep sleep through the practice of meditation to prepare the mind for death.
Path of Liberation Resources

Description

While on retreat in the summer of 2010, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche wrote a short practice text entitled Nectar of the Path. This elegant liturgy encapsulates the essential elements of Buddhist meditation practice. It includes verses on the four thoughts – the precious human life, impermanence, karma, and suffering – as well as on refuge, bodhichitta, guru yoga, and nature of mind meditation. Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche later gave teachings on this text at a Tergar Monastery in Bodhgaya, India. His instructions include a detailed commentary on the text itself, as well as teachings on the Three Vehicles of Tibetan Buddhism and practical advice on meditation practice.​
