An open mind and compassionate heart are important and necessary virtues to lead a good life. But we are often bound and limited by our prejudices, fears, and divisions. Awareness is the key that frees us and allows our positive qualities to be expressed. Awareness is essential for spiritual transformation. When we open our body, speech, and mind with awareness, our inherent capacity for love is found to be already present. In the Bön tradition of Tibet, sacred sound is used as a skillful means to release tensions and blockages in our body, free our speech of divisions of exclusion and bias, and activate the compassionate qualities of an open heart. Through engaging the sacred syllables of A, OM, and HUNG, we employ the power of mantra to awaken the sacred dimension of our body, speech, and mind and transform our life for the benefit of ourselves and others.
This teaching is especially precious as Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will not be teaching in 2021. Rinpoche is taking a year-long sabbatical and will return to teaching in 2022. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!

Founder and spiritual director of Ligmincha International, Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is a respected and beloved teacher and meditation master in the Bön Buddhist tradition of Tibet. He has students in more than 25 countries, teaches around the world and reaches thousands of students through his online programs.
Trained as a Bön monk, Rinpoche now lives as a householder, allowing him to more fully relate to the needs and concerns of his students. Known for the depth of his wisdom and his unshakeable commitment to helping students recognize their true nature, he is the author of many books and online courses.
Fluent in English, Tenzin Rinpoche teaches in a warm and engaging style, frequently drawing on examples from contemporary culture to bring the ancient Bön teachings to life, making them relevant to the lives of modern people and a powerful basis for spiritual growth. He is equally at home teaching online and in a retreat setting.
Rinpoche regularly teaches in Europe, the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, and Asia. Information about worldwide locations may be found here.
He also is a leader in using technology to teach dharma. Rinpoche has offered free live webcasts since 2009, including through his Facebook page since 2016. Beginning in 2010 he has offered a variety of online courses, through both Ligmincha Learning and GlideWing Productions. With the support of his global volunteer base, Rinpoche’s teachings are available in as many as 18 different languages through both real-time translation and subtitles. Find out more about his live events here. Hundreds of hours of previously recorded teachings can be found on Ligmincha’s YouTube channel and Ocean of Wisdom.
Recognizing the diverse needs of students, Rinpoche has created two sister organizations to Ligmincha: The 3 Doors and Lishu Institute. The 3 Doors is an international organization that allows participants from all walks of life to go deep into the essence of the teachings. Its programs use meditation and community to support self-discovery, personal transformation, and actions that benefit others. Lishu Institute, a residential education and retreat center in India, offers intensive study and practice of the Bön tradition. Its programs run from two weeks to two months in length, with some participants choosing extended study.
