Hi, I was trying to remember if this online course is followed by any kind of in-person training or transmission. I am moving very slowly so there is no rush, but was curious. I really appreciate these teachings.
Good question. A few answers for you:
– Rinpoche will give the teaching and transmission in Los Angeles in March. See here: https://yeruboncenter.org/event/dzogchen-ngondro-opening-your-inner-space-for-spirituality/
– Rinpoche values the Ngondro practices highly, so if you cannot attend that teaching, expect it to be taught every couple/few years. Other qualified Bön teachers also give this teaching and transmission, so you may find one sooner looking around.
– It never hurts to reach out and request a teaching from Rinpoche (reach out to the Administrator through the form here: https://yeruboncenter.org/contact/). I certainly couldn’t promise anything, but depending on where/when it is held, attendance, etc., it happens.
Hope that helps!
Thanks so much for the response. Unfortunately the one in March is not going to work for me, so I’ll just have to wait and see. I appreciate all the info and look forward to eventually receiving this in person! -Kathleen
Hello. I know Rinpoche is after very difficult surgery, but during nowadays circumstances is it possible if Rinpoche will give the transmission to Ngondro online? Maybe more people who is doing the course will take part in it?

Hello Judie, What i have understood is that Yongdzin Rinpoche does not approve online transmission. I was not able to order a text somewhere because i received online transmission. Though, some lama’s seem to have no problem with online transmission. A trustworthy source told me it is fine to do ngondro and receive transmission later on. So there is no hurry. Best wishes. And i hope Rinpoche will get well soon.
