Friends of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche was started in 2000 by heart sangha in order to support Rinpoche's retreat time and create a way for students to access Rinpoche's teachings monthly and long-term. Our Heart Teachings subscribing members have continued this support and receive monthly videos that inspire 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 heritage.
As a subscribing member, for a minimum of $20/mo for digital subscriptions or $27 per month (+ tax for California subscribers) for DVD,* you will receive:
Our current Member Exclusive Video for July 2021:
Recognizing Our True Nature (teachings from Bodhi House, March 2013)
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.
*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 not receiving incomplete teachings. Therefore, we cannot send out videos partway through a series without including the whole series. If you start your membership mid-series, you will need to purchase the previous months' videos in order to get up-to-date. Also, you can cancel your subscription at any time, but we encourage you to complete a teaching series, if possible. Please reach out to us if your situation changes before the end of a series.
