- Can my view be as vast as space, when my motivation is not?’
- And, ‘what can a teacher give me, other than instructions on how to relate properly and fully to my own experience, and encouragement to do so?’

The CDs for the teachings given by Hungkar Dorje Rinpoche at Tibet House are now available.
Trinley Nyingpo, the “essence of enlightened activity,” is the concise Guru Rinpoche sadhana practice from the Tug Drub Bar Chay Kun Sel treasure cycle discovered by the King of Treasure Revealers, Chog Gyur Dechen Lingpa, along with Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.
Teaching from his upcoming book The Buddha, The Brain, and the Science of Happiness, Mingyur Rinpoche will guide students through the entire path from the brilliant 'ground' of our inner nature, to the 'fruit' of freedom and peace.
This was the question underlying His Holiness' presentations on April 8 and 9, 2006. Since all beings, without exception, desire happiness and seek to avoid suffering, what does it take for us to contribute to the fulfillment of those fundamental aims?
In December 2006, on the invitation of Ms. Bich Quyen Nguyen, Rinpoche and Tulku Sherdor visited Mexico City for a program at the Casa Lamm cultural center. They also visited Casa Tibet, the "Tibet House" of Mexico, where Director Tony Karam invited Rinpoche to return in June 2007 to teach. They then journeyed on for programs in Orange County, San Diego, Bodega, and San Jose -- a hectic and rewarding three weeks.
We were able to meet with Ven. Khenpo Sonam Topgyal and his kind sponsors, Vivian and Chen Chai, in Bangkok, in time to participate in a special offering ceremony at one of the temples founded by a disciple of Khenpo's great uncle, Nora Rinpoche, who was a famous Lama throughout the Chinese speaking world in the 1920 and 1930s.
In Nepal, our intrepid group spent three days participating in the annual "Ngak So" (restoration of sacredness) ritual at Nagi Gompa, the former seat of Tulku Urgyen, way up the northern slopes of the Kathmandu Valley inside the Shivapuri Nature Preserve. We visited many other sacred sites and dharma teachers and friends, old and new
By invitation from Director Justin Lim and longtime student Lester Kwong, Tulku Sherdor taught a weekend program at the new Nyingma meditation center in Singapore. The subject was Mipham's method for meditating upon Shakyamuni Buddha. People seemed quite pleased to be able to receive dharma teachings in English.
In July 2006, Hung Kar Dorje Rinpoche and Lama Sherab Dorje led an invitation-only, week-long retreat at Orgyen Dradul Ling in Coos Bay, Oregon dealing with preparing for the eventuality of death through meditation.
