The Tergar Meditation Community, founded by the revered Dharma teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, has announced that Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche will give a live teaching on 24 February on the theme “Mahamudra: Revealing Our True Nature.”

“The Mahamudra style of practice can help us discover our true nature and the nature of our mind in an accessible and direct way,” Tergar explained in an announcement shared with BDG. “Drawn from the experiences of realized beings and explained to us by excellent teachers such as Mingyur Rinpoche, these teachings can become a lived experience for us.”

Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche’s teaching will encompass how Mahamudra can be practiced in the modern world, how the practice of Mahamudra can help us to recognize who we truly are, and how practitioners can embark on and continue exploring the path of Mahamudra by connecting with and cultivating our inherent awareness, compassion, and wisdom.

“The path of Mahamudra offers us a unique way of freeing ourselves from our limited views and perceptions and connecting with the essence of who we truly are,” Tergar observed. “By familiarizing ourselves with the view of Mahamudra, we can once and for all liberate our minds—becoming free from the dungeon of samsara’s suffering.” (Tergar)

“Mahamudra: Revealing Our True Nature,” will be conducted in English, with translations into Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, and live-streamed at the following times:

Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche, one of the most revered and celebrated contemporary lamas in the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism, was boring in Kalimpong, India, in 1967, the eldest daughter of the late Mindrolling Trichen, Khandro Rinpoche.

At the age of two, she was recognized by Rangjung Rigpe Dorje (1924–81), the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa, as the reincarnation of the great dakini of Tsurphu Monastery, Khandro Urgyen Tsomo (1897–1961). One of the most renowned female masters of her time, Khandro Urgyen Tsomo was consort to Khakyab Dorje (1871–1922), the 15th Karmapa, and was herself recognized as an incarnation of Yeshe Tsogyal (c. 757–817 CE).

Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche has studied and practiced under some of the most revered masters of the Tibetan tradition, including: Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen; Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche; Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche; Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche; Kyabje Tulku Ugyen Rinpoche; and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.

Today, Rinpoche teaches in Asia, Europe, and North America, while remaining active at Mindrolling Monastery in India. She leads a network of centers and communities across many countries, and has established numerous organizations that focus on charitable projects and the preservation of the Buddhadharma.

Simply put, the Vajrayana trains in awareness of the true nature, such that all falsity collapses. When the true nature is revealed, the ability to transcend our constant attachment to “self” spontaneously arises—thus allowing genuine compassion to spontaneously pervade. This is the vajrayana path of practice. — Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche
