With the Tibetan New Year which began on March 3, 2022 (Year of the Water Tiger), Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche launched a new online program of 24-Hour Full Moon Practices, plus related live teachings and science/spirituality dialogs with Rinpoche and invited guests.
In the Tibetan tradition, body, speech, and mind are known as the three doors to enlightenment, for they are considered 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.
The 2021 program helped participants discover a sense of peace within. This year, from that foundation of peacefulness the practices can be brought to life—awakening clear, positive action; realizing our true voice; and manifesting qualities for the benefit of others.
Whether you are a longtime meditation practitioner or a novice, you are welcome to attend any or all live broadcasts throughout the year. Except for the 24-Hour full moon practices, no advance registration is required. The 24-hour session begins with a teaching and guided meditation at 10 a.m. New York time on the day of the full moon, and ends at 10 a.m. the following day. Participants will be supported by Ligmincha International’s global community of practitioners. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and other Ligmincha lamas will take opportunities to join participants throughout the 24 hours.
Unlike Rinpoche’s CyberSangha® Facebook Live broadcasts, the 24-hour full moon practice takes place via Zoom, in an online meeting space. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required.
MONTH OF THE BODY (March 16–April 14)
A full-moon practice was held March 17–18, and a Science & Spirituality Dialog with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche; Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score; host Alejandro Chaoul-Reich, and other invited presenter(s) was held March 23. The dialog can be viewed in the CyberSangha archives.
