Tai Situ Rinpoche's teaching program is based on Creation and realization by terton Jamgon Kongtrul, revered as one of Tibet's true spiritual and literary giants, and will explore: the ultimate potential of all sentient beings; the relationship between body, speech and mind; absolute and relative reality; and the three kayaks.
"Many of us often find ourselves trapped in habitual patterns that limit us and negatively affect our relationships with ourselves, others, and our environment," Tergar explained. “In this webinar, Vajradhara Tai Situ Rinpoche will give us practical advice on how, through cultivation, our body, speech and mind can naturally come into alignment with our ultimate and primordial potential, the destiny of all sentient beings. . »
