These teachings are offered in accordance with the Rigpa Shedra’s policy of making the Dharma freely available wherever possible.

Please understand that listening to recordings is not a substitute for actually attending classes and receiving instructions directly. Aside from the obvious benefits, such as the ability to clarify points with the teacher and fellow students, live attendance also enables one to receive the oral transmission, upon which the tradition places considerable emphasis.

Shedra East 2008-2009

Khenchen Pema Sherab visited the Rigpa Shedra on 27th December 2008 and gave a teaching connecting the great texts being studied at the Shedra: Mipham Rinpoche's Gateway to Knowledge (Khenjuk), Shantideva's Bodhicharyavatara, Maitreya's Abhisamayalankara, the Uttaratantra Shastra and Mipham Rinpoche's The Lion's Roar: A Commentary on Sugatagarbha with one crucial point: If teachings or practice remain simply knowledge there won't be much benefit. It is important to apply the teachings to oneself in order to transform one's mind.
