Online Course Recommendation and Praise
“Many of my talks, I cannot give again and again. I gave a talk in Thailand, Bangkok. On the last Guru Rinpoche day of 2016. Really it was such a good one. Mind training. They asked me to teach on mind training. Oh, I gave such a good talk. I liked it myself so much. Most of the time, I teach–I don’t like the teaching.

But, this time teaching was so good - and I told them to record and make available for my students. I cannot repeat so well again.”

Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche on “Training the Mind: An Introduction”
Training the Mind: An Introduction - Samye Dharma
“Rinpoche’s remarkable energy shines in this course in a very bright way! He brings me systematically back to the core issue. Any single word of this sutra and every single comment by Rinpoche-la are meaningfully essential and practical. What a blessing!” 

~ Guido Freddi on the Noble Wisdom of the Time of Death Sutra course.

Tukdrub Barché Kunsel Ngöndro: The Four Foundations - Samye Dharma
“Wow, I just watched the videos in Motivation and Intent: Bodhicitta and am blown away. The refuge & bodhicitta practice seems like the entire path condensed into one. You have the lower vehicles with the outer refuge, the greater vehicle with bodhicitta, and the Vajrayana vehicle with inner and secret refuge and bodhicitta. On top of that, there is a shamata training with the visualisation, purifying the winds and channels with the inner refuge in the three roots (as well as the prostrations?), the pinnacle of the path with the resting inseparable from Guru Rinpoche. Wow! I hope I never again look at the hundred thousand prostrations as something to “just get out of the way before the ‘real’ stuff.” 

~ Lowell Cook on the "Tukdrub Barché Kunsel Ngöndro: The Four Foundations” online course
