All phenomena of cyclic existence or transcendence, Included within both appearance and mind, Have no reality whatsoever and (therefore) Arise in any way whatsoever. — Jamgön Kongtrul Lodro Thaye

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. 


In this program, you will learn about:

  • the Path of Liberation in Vajrayana Buddhism
  • the two Path of Liberation tracks within Tergar: Nectar of the Path and Ngondro
  • elements of Path of Liberation practice
  • the structure of a typical practice session
  • Path of Liberation levels and practice requirements
