Heart Teachings by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche was started in 2000 (as Friends of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche) by his heart sangha in order to support Rinpoche's retreat time and to create a way for students to access Rinpoche's teachings each month and long-term. Our subscribing members continue this support and receive monthly videos that inspire and guide our practice and enhance our connection to Rinpoche's legacy. Members become active participants in the preservation of this unique and authentic Vajrayana Buddhist ngakpa yogi heritage. 

As a subscribing member, for a minimum of $20 per month for digital subscriptions, you will receive:

  • in-depth teachings from one of the most experienced authentic Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist masters to live in the US
  • a 1- to 2+-hour teaching on video (with accompanying audio), usually as part of a 4- to 6-month series
  • access to teachings one to two years in advance of public availability
  • first access to on-demand video and audio streaming and download with digital subscription
  • 20% discount on our website with code
  • periodic gifts for our members during each series

Upcoming Member Exclusive video series January-April 2023: The Life and Songs of Dudjom Lingpa (January-April 2023)

Note: If you're already a current subscriber, there is no need to sign up. You'll continue to receive the teachings.

*Important Note: You can become a member and support our efforts at any time - such support is essential to our work. However, LAMA THARCHIN RINPOCHE STRESSED THE IMPORTANCE OF RECEIVING COMPLETE TEACHINGS. Therefore, if you subscribe partway through a series, you will need to purchase the previous months' videos in order to catch up. We will send you an invoice for the balance. We strongly encourage you to complete a teaching series in order to receive the complete teaching as Rinpoche advises. If your circumstances change before you're able to complete a series, please reach out to us to see what options there may be.
