Welcome to the new '''Rigpa Shedra Wiki'''. This is an '''online encyclopedia''' and '''media library''' of Tibetan Buddhist teachings designed especially for students of '''[[Rigpa]]''' and '''[[Sogyal Rinpoche]]'''. It is provided by members of the [[Rigpa Shedra]], an intensive study programme which is currently taking place in [[Pharping]] near Kathmandu in Nepal under the guidance of [[Khenpo Namdrol]]. This year the shedra is focusing on [[Shantideva]]'s classic text, the ''[[Bodhicharyavatara]]'' or ''Introduction to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life'', so you will find plenty of material here related to that, including '''mp3 recordings''' of all the teachings by [[Khenpo]] [[Sönam Tobden]]. But you will also find much more than that. We offer a growing library of reference material that will be of help to all students, including a '''glossary''' of key terminology, biographies of historical masters and contemporary teachers, and much more.
