Membership

Started in 2000 by Friends of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, our Heart Teachings subscribing members receive monthly videos to inspire our practice and enhance our connection to Rinpoche's legacy. Through their monthly support, members also become active participants in the preservation of this unique and authentic Vajrayana Buddhist ngakpa heritage. 

As a subscribing member, for a minimum of $20/mo for digital subscriptions or $26 per month (+ tax for California subscribers) for DVD,* 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 video teaching as mp4 digital video download or DVD, usually part of a 4-8 month series
  • access to teachings one to two years in advance of public availability
  • first access to on-demand video as they become available with digital subscription
  • monthly digital video is available both to stream and download
  • monthly DVDs ship free within the domestic US (add $5 international)
  • mp3 audio recordings of the series teachings (sent monthly to Digital subscribers and at the conclusion of the series to DVD subscribers)
  • 10% discount on Heart Teachings website with code
  • periodic special offers, gifts, or access for members only

Our current six-teaching series, Self-Liberation through Seeing with Naked Awareness by Padmasambhava, revealed by Karma Lingpa, Teachings by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, runs October 2019 - March 2020.

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

Find out more about this series on our blog.

To subscribe, you'll need to do two things. To get started and purchase the October teachings (DIGITAL or DVD), use this link. Then return to this page (there's a link on the product page too) and be sure to sign up to become a DIGITAL subscribing member here or a DVD subscribing member here. If you forget, don't worry - we'll reach out to you shortly with the links.

Digital subscribers will be charged monthly through the membership registration form. DVD subscribers will be contacted separately for payment. Both should begin by paying for October Teaching 1 above.

Note: You can become a member and support our efforts at any time. However, to receive the series videos, if you start your membership mid-series (after October 2019 for the current Self-Liberation series), you will need to purchase the previous months' videos in order to get up-to-date as Rinpoche did not want us to have incomplete teachings. For the same reason, you can cancel your membership at any time, but Rinpoche strongly recommended receiving complete series teachings. You can purchase October's Teaching 1 through the link above. If you don't want a monthly video as part of your membership, drop us a line and let us know.

 *If you are in a formal retreat of six months or longer or are ordained sangha, please ask about special rates. Note that membership rates are discretionary and $20 for digital (or $26 for DVD) is the minimum; higher rates contribute to the larger archiving and preservation work that the subscriptions fund. We truly rely upon and appreciate your support.

We also offer the chance to receive a previous exclusive series as an add-on subscription for current subscribers only. Let us know if you're interested in any of these teachings by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche:
