What you receive

• Personal interview with Lama Sonam Rinpoche once a year, either in person or by Skype.

Participants can submit questions ahead of time through the program administrator. Local program participants may also attend these in person.
• Senior student advisors, chosen by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche and Lama Sonam Rinpoche, will be matched with individual participants, and will provide monthly email or phone contact to answer personalized questions about Ngöndro practice and to give ongoing support and encouragement.
• Recordings of retreat teachings when available at a reduced rate for those unable to attend annual Ngöndro retreats at Pema Osel Ling.
• Lung (Oral Transmission): The Ngöndro lung can be received from Lama Sonam Rinpoche, Tulku Jamyang Rinpoche, Lama Gyaltsen Rinpoche, recommended lamas or senior students in different locations in Hawaii, Mexico, East Coast, Europe, etc. Students must receive the lung in person rather than via the web or telephone, but they are allowed to start their Ngöndro practice beforehand, if necessary.
