Full-Day Free Live Webcast!
Join us from your computer! The end of the year is an ideal time to clear the karma we have accumulated over the past year, satisfy old karmic debts, and free ourselves to live a more joyful, spontaneous life. During this webcast, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will explain and guide practices surrounding the powerful purification mantra A Kar A Me, one of the three Great Mantras of Bon. Additional guided meditations will be led by a senior student.
A variety of practice supports are available in advance of the live webcast, including written materials (prayers and practice instructions), videos of supportive teachings and a guided practice with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, as well as visual supports. Access these materials here.

About advertisements: All of Rinpoche's live webcasts are provided entirely through the efforts of volunteers. The broadcast service inserts ads in the webcast in order that we can provide the webcasts at no charge, and these ads can be disruptive for some viewers. Ligmincha cannot afford the high fee for removing these ads for all viewers, but as an individual you can purchase a premium membership at www.uStream.tv ($3.99/month, cancel at any time) that will allow you to personally view webcasts with no advertisements on your screen.
