With the aim to build a good foundation of Buddhist philosophy, Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche has offered to start a new ONLINE STUDY PROGRAMME. For this purpose he will base his teachings on the classical Buddhist treatises, in particular on the works of Longchen Rabjam, Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa and Ju Mipham Rinpoche, who have been very learned masters of the 14th to 20th century.
Programme structure and participation
Every year Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche will teach five full days online on the classical texts mentioned below. Throughout the year, there will be monthly online study and review sessions with Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche to repeat and deepen the contents that have been taught and the knowledge that has been acquired through personal studies (up to 100 pages per year).
The whole programme will run for a period of four years – divided into three years of Sutrayana teachings and one year of Tantrayana teachings and practice.
Since the topics are lined up in sequential order, continuous participation is suggested.
Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche requests all participants to attend the sessions live, as a personal relationship with his students is important to Rinpoche. Attendance at 70% of the sessions with Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche is a prerequisite for successful participation in the Longchen Shedra. Those who do not meet this requirement at the end of the study year will be asked to repeat.
Links to the recordings are provided for reviewing the material to deepen understanding.
We ask participants to buy the following book as a basis for study:
Longchen Rabjam, “Drubtha Dzö” (Treasury of precious philosophical Systems)
