What Your Subscription Supports
All Encompassing Path
A portion of your subscription fees goes directly towards supporting the development, implementation, and delivery of the All Encompassing Path. This includes time that goes into organzing, editing and delivering the teachings on the Treasury of Wisdom; designing and delivering the materials for the monthly gatherings; and generating the weekly study program ~ all in accordance with Rinpoche’s latest instructions and guidance.
Your membership also goes towards supporting Rigpa staff members on the national team with the honor of serving Rigpa’s mission: ‘Rigpa presents the Buddhist tradition of Tibet in a way that is both completely authentic and relevant to the lives and needs of modern society.’
The role of team members includes supporting our local centers, the distance sangha, students in their study and practice, instructors, and helping us connect the wisdom of the teachings to a wider audience.
Organizing retreats with Sogyal Rinpoche and events with Rigpa senior instructors and teachers offered at our Rigpa centers.
Offering and administering Rigpa online courses to students from all over the world. The U.S. is one of the only countries in which students can follow a complete, graduated path ~ beginning with meditation all the way through Vajrayana courses.
Implementing the administrative functions associated with running a nonprofit organization such as bookkeeping, database management, marketing, and communications.
Your subscription also helps make it possible for Rigpa U.S. to continue our long standing policy that no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
For those of you connected to a local center, your subscription contributes towards rent, internet, utilities, and insurance associated with your local shrine room.
