Nectar of the Path – A Reminder for Daily Practice

Mingyur Rinpoche wrote The Nectar of the Path during the annual Tergar summer retreat at St. Johns University in 2010. This is a short, yet complete, practice that allows us to touch on all the elements of the path in one short meditation session. Mingyur Rinpoche said that any of his students are welcome to use this practice, and that it was an excellent way for us to connect with him while he is on retreat. While anyone is welcome to practice this, regardless of practice background, it is important to note this is a ‘Buddhist’ practice in that it is based on the fundamental Buddhist concepts of refuge, bodhicitta, and relationship to the teacher. If you would like to practice this Nectar of the Path, you’re encouraged to listen to a short overview of the meaning and stages of the practice - below.
