As for the stainless wisdom insight that is taught in the case of this Treasury of Abhidharma,‬ first of all, one relies on the insight that comes from study and reflection. In the end, however,‬ ‭one must rely solely on the insight that comes from meditation. — Mingyur Rinpoche, from Stainless Prajna

This is the first retreat of Tergar’s 2024/25 transmission — Buddhist Psychology: Mind Explained —  on Mingyur Rinpoche’s newly written text, Stainless Prajna: Stages of Meditation on the Treasury of Abhidharma, which is a meditation manual on Vasubandhu’s famous text, The Treasury of Abhidharma. In this first retreat, Mingyur Rinpoche will guide us through the view and practices of Abhidharma, centering his teachings around the first 14 practice chapters of Stainless Prajna.


Mingyur Rinpoche has collected the different meditation practices throughout the Abhidharma literature and compiled them to create a meditation manual for modern-day practitioners. To have the opportunity to receive instructions on Abhidharma based on Mingyur Rinpoche’s new text, Stainless Prajna, is truly precious. 


In this program, you will:

  • be introduced to Vasubandhu’s Treasury of Abhidharma
  • receive teachings on Rinpoche’s new text, Stainless Prajna
  • receive practice guidance on Abhidharma directly from Mingyur Rinpoche


  • Live teachings, Q&A, and practice sessions with Mingyur Rinpoche
  • Teaching sessions with Lama Trinley
  • Q&A sessions with Tergar Guides
  • Group meditation


This retreat is open to all.

Can I get access to a recording of this event?

Recordings of Mingyur Rinpoche and Lama Trinley's teaching sessions will be posted within 72 hours after the end of the last session and will be available for two months.

About Mingyur Rinpoche

In his approach to teaching meditation, Mingyur Rinpoche integrates traditional Buddhist practice and philosophy with the current scientific understanding of the mind and mental health – making the practice of meditation relevant and accessible to students around the world.

Mingyur Rinpoche is a world-renowned meditation teacher with personal experience of anxiety and panic attacks, which he suffered from throughout his childhood and into his teenage years, when he learned to transform his panic through meditation. Born in Nepal in 1975, Mingyur Rinpoche began to study meditation as a young boy with his father, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, himself a well-respected Buddhist teacher. As a child he became interested in contemporary science through conversations with scientists who were visiting his father, and as he grew older he began to collaborate with neuroscientists and psychologists, including Richard Davidson and Antoine Lutz at the University of Wisconsin, on research projects that study the effects of meditation on the brain and the mind.

Mingyur Rinpoche’s first book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into over twenty languages. His second book, Joyful Wisdom: Embracing Change and Finding Freedom, explores how difficult emotions and challenging life situations can be used as stepping stones to discover joy and freedom. In his most recent book, In Love with the World, Mingyur Rinpoche shares how his meditation practice sustained him when he left his monastery to wander through India and the powerfully transformative insights he gained from the near-death experience he had at the beginning of his journey. Mingyur Rinpoche recently appeared in the Netflix series The Mind, Explained, in an episode about the benefits of mindfulness.

As the head of the Tergar Meditation Community, Mingyur Rinpoche supports groups of students in more than thirty countries, leading workshops around the world for new and returning students every year.

About Lama Trinley

Lama Trinley has been the resident teacher at the Tergar Mingjue Phoenix Center since November, 2007. Lama Trinley began his education at Tergar Monastery, where he studied the rituals, prayers, and other traditional practices of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He entered the traditional three-year retreat when he was seventeen years old, after which he spent six years training in the monastic college of Tergar Monastery, where he taught for three years as assistant professor. His command of English and his humble and gentle demeanor make him easily accessible to newcomers and experienced meditators alike.
