About Vajrayana Online


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: Mahamudra

Mahamudra is considered the most profound and direct path to awakening in the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. This lineage of practical instructions helps us to experience the radiant purity of awareness and to stabilize this experience and integrate it with every aspect of our lives. For centuries, teachings on Mahamudra have been passed down by some of Tibet’s greatest masters, including Milarepa and Gampopa.

In this course we will learn the most important principles and practices of the Mahamudra tradition. Our journey will be based on important texts from the Mahamudra lineage and video teachings from Mingyur Rinpoche on key points of nature of mind practice. The course will also include live webinars with Mingyur Rinpoche and Tergar instructors, discussion forums, an extensive Mahamudra workbook to deepen understanding and experience, and a range of other resources for study and practice.

Throughout the Mahamudra course, we return to three familiar points of reference: understanding the view, gaining experience through meditation, and the application of our practice in everyday life. The discussion questions, reflection exercises, and meditation suggestions offered in the course workbook are designed to help you deepen your experience and understanding in these three areas.

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 summer and winter retreats.
