Live Webcast of the 11th Vajra Vidya Teaching

http://www.namobuddha.org

1 to 10 November 2012, Namo Buddha Nepal
10–11:30 am & 3:30–5:00 pm Nepal time (GMT +5:45)


We are very excited to announce that the teachings by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche on Karma Chakme's Mountain Dharma will be broadcast live over the internet and would like to invite everyone to join us for this precious opportunity. Rinpoche's teachings will be held daily at 10 am Nepal Time. In addition, Khenpo Lobsang and Khenpo Losal will also review and give in-depth explanations of Rinpoche's teachings every afternoon at 3:30 pm.

Thanks for that...my wife's root teacher.
She may even go against her usual habits and actually look at a Buddhist website...something she normally avoids doing !

Also today I follow (exclusively) ChNN's teaching, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche is still my root teacher ...

Cool! Thanks a lot Sonam. Looks like a great teaching. I'll share this on DW too, doesn't seem anyone knows about it. Do you know if Thrangu Rinpoche will go through the whole teaching or just the 1st volume (I see there are 5)?

Also can someone say a bit what was on the first day? I only saw this when I posted and so missed the first teaching. There is the extra explanation happening now, but I don't really get what it's about (probably since I started to listen in the middle hehe).

I missed also the first teaching (quite early). I know that Vajra Vydia is the name given to the sixteenth Gyalwa Karmapa and that it means " Indestructible Knowledge ".
But for detailed questions you may ask on the chat while listenning.

This is just awesome. I recently received volumes 1 and 2 of Mountain Dharma, so that ties in nicely with these precious teachings.

Thank you for the reference.

I wish I had the texts because I find it difficult to follow. On another note, I think the cameraman might not be a monk. :rolling

So MYM did you manage to catch the whole webcast? Unfortunately I only managed to watch twice. I hope there will be others in the future, it's pretty cool that more and more teacher are trying it out.

How do you like the books?
