Mahamudra is known as a swift path to enlightenment, with powerful methods to help us recognize the true nature of our minds. Traditionally, one sets out on this path with what are known as ngondro or “foundational practices.” Tergar’s Path of Liberation program uses the foundational practices as a container while emphasizing the nature of mind practices. This webinar is an introduction and overview of these practices and Tergar’s two Path of Liberation tracks: ngondro and Nectar of the Path — a practice composed by Mingyur Rinpoche himself for the Tergar Community.
Do you feel drawn to Buddhist practices but don’t know where to begin or learn more about Mahamudra tradition? This webinar aims to demystify Tergar’s Path of Liberation for those who are curious and serve as a helpful first step for those who feel ready to enter this path.

Tsunma Kunsang Palmo met Mingyur Rinpoche in 2006 and became his committed student in 2008. After immersing herself in the practice of meditation at Sherabling Monastery in 2014 Kunsang Palmo recognized the benefits and consequently responded to the requests of young international travelers by facilitating the Dharamsala Tergar group in North India. She now lives in North India where she continues her practice and hosts a Tergar group. She hopes that her committed approach to her life and work, inspired by Mingyur Rinpoche’s teachings, brings some benefit to others.
