Life of Guru Rinpoche
Excerpt of the 10th Month

by Dudjom Rinpoche

An offering for you for the 10th month,
Manifestation of Guru Rinpoche as Padmasambhva

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche gives an introduction to Ngöndro (the preliminary practices of the Vajrayana) and an explanation of the four thoughts that turn the mind towards the dharma. Rinpoche began this teaching as part of an extended series on Ngöndro, but due to health problems, was able to give only this single teaching from 2007. Rinpoche continued teaching on the concise Dudjom Tersar Ngöndro in 2008 with Heart Teachings Series 19: Dudjom Tersar Ngöndro Teachings by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche.
