In response to the current worldwide coronavirus crisis, Her Eminence Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche has recorded a special series of teachings on a famous Mahayana Buddhist text entitled Turning Suffering and Happiness into Enlightenment.

This extraordinary teaching shows us how to transform and draw the very best out of the experience of both suffering and happiness, and use it for our ultimate benefit and the benefit of others.

Khandro Rinpoche is particularly addressing Dharma practitioners and those who already have some beginning knowledge of Buddhism, but the teachings are of course relevant and helpful to everyone interested.

If you wish to know more about the content of the teaching, you can also read the full text she is commenting on here.

Khandro Rinpoche is one of Rigpa’s spiritual advisors and the Spiritual Director of Lerab Ling, Rigpa’s retreat centre in France. After plans to teach at several Rigpa centres this Spring had to be cancelled due to the restrictions related to the worldwide coronavirus situation, we are grateful that she has accepted to give this series of teachings that we can offer online.

Supporting Lerab Ling and Dzogchen Beara

Rigpa is offering a number of programmes free online through a number of our centres and social media platforms (Facebook and YouTube). However, for this event and several other online events in 2020 we do request a financial contribution. The income from these dedicated events will go to supporting Rigpa’s two main retreat centres: Lerab Ling in France and Dzogchen Beara in Ireland which have been especially affected by programme cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are aware that many people are facing similar financial difficulties so there is an option to pay a reduced contribution for this event.
