Benefits of Membership

Access to the All-Encompassing Path to Enlightenment

The All-Encompassing Path is Rinpoche’s vision for bringing the depth and breadth of the Buddha Dharma into one complete path for the entire Rigpa sangha. It is tailored to the needs of each individual student, and makes the teachings completely accessible in our busy, everyday lives. It provides an opportunity to be connected to wherever Rinpoche is teaching in the world. For questions about the All-Encompassing Path, please contact Michael Wong at: michael.wong@rigpa.org

  • Monthly Sangha Gatherings: This is where we gather together as a sangha to study the most profound teachings and support each other as spiritual friends. As Rinpoche’s teachings become more profound, monthly gatherings are the place where we will have opportunities to receive Rinpoche’s highest teachings given as he travels around the world.
  • Weekly Home Study: Study the latest and most essential teachings online or download them to your computer and study on your own time.
  • Treasury of Wisdom: treasuryofwisdom.rigpa.org
    This website includes additional Dharma teachings from Rinpoche and other teachers on: meditation, lojong, ngöndro, practices such as Riwo Sangchö and Tendrel Nyesel, as well as transformative teachings to help us deal with whatever challenges we may face in life, such as illness, death, love and relationships, depression, preventing burnout and exhaustion, and many other relevant topics.
  • Regular Streaming: Access to internationally streamed All-Encompassing Path retreats throughout the year (additional suggested donation per event).
  • Study Support and Feedback: Experienced instructor guidance and the opportunity to offer feedback to Rinpoche so he can address our insights, needs, and aspirations.

Study and Practice

Become part of a thriving community of practitioners, with support for all levels of engagement. From the fundamentals of meditation to more advanced practices passed down authentically through the lineage, subscribing students have many resources available for guidance along the path.

Rigpa U.S.

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.’
