About Vajrayana Online

Buddha-Head-Large

Vajrayana Online is a groundbreaking program that offers practical teachings on the full range of Buddhist thought and practice, as well as individual guidance from senior lamas and instructors and the opportunity to connect with a global community of meditators. Mingyur Rinpoche is actively involved with this new program, offering both live and recorded teachings.

As a subscription-based online program designed for students of Vajrayana Buddhism, Vajrayana Online is a virtual space created to explore topics and practices from the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. For those engaged in Ngondro, it is the perfect way to support your practice.

Current course in Vajrayana Online: The Three Yanas Course

The entire path of Tibetan Buddhism is framed a journey of awakening that weaves together teachings and practices from three different approaches. These approaches - the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana - are traditionally referred to as "vehicles," or "yanas," because they can carry us from confusion to the state of enlightenment. The Hinayana, or Foundational Vehicle, encompasses the teachings and practices that form the bedrock of the Buddhist path. The Mahayana teachings go deeper into the relative teachings on loving-kindness, compassion, and bodhichitta, as well as the ultimate principle of emptiness or prajnaparamita. In the Vajrayana, the three yanas come together as one. This approach puts us in touch with the essence of the path and helps us to experience our true nature. Qualified practitioners can join this course by becoming a monthly subscriber to Vajrayana Online.

Is the Vajrayana Online program for me?

This program is open to those who have received both ngondro transmission and pointing out instructions from a qualified lineage holder of either the Kagyu or Nyingma traditions. Tergar students receive these instructions and transmissions at all Path of Liberation retreats, including our annual St. Johns and winter retreats.
