Rinpoche’s Free Online Program: ‘A Year of Body, Speech & Mind’

Rinpoche’s Free Online Program: ‘A Year of Body, Speech & Mind’

In the Tibetan tradition, body, speech and mind are known as the three doors to enlightenment, for they are the only tools we have for progressing on the spiritual path. Through these doors we either exit and become separated from our true nature, or we enter into the fullness of being, realizing and manifesting our capacities in this life for the benefit of others.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is launching a yearlong online program related to these three doors.
