Mingyur Rinpoche introduces the second pointing out instruction for Tergar’s Path of Liberation.

About this event

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT WILL BE OFFERED IN ENGLISH ONLY. IF YOU REQUIRE TRANSLATION, YOU MAY WISH TO ATTEND THE JULY 29th-31st EVENT IN PORTUGAL.

The essence of Tergar’s Path of Liberation is cultivating insight into the nature of mind. Critically, this nature is emptiness. During this retreat, Mingyur Rinpoche will introduce the second pointing out instruction which elucidates this truth. He will also give a refuge ceremony and bestow the White Tara empowerment. An embodiment of enlightened activity, White Tara serves as the principal deity of the Tergar lineage. Moreover, during this retreat you will receive instructions on the Nectar of the Path and traditional Ngondro practices.
