Virtual Achen Gar will continue to broadcast Rinpoche’s teachings on different mahayana and tantrayana texts after Padmasambhava’s Pointing the Staff At the Old Man’s Heart.

The following three courses have been planned after having discussed with Rinpoche:

  • Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas, 16 lessons
  • Guru Yoga That Brings Swift Realisations, 18 lessons
  • Atisha’s profound teaching to his three principal students, 7 lessons

The “37 Practices of a Bodhisattva ” are considered very  special instructions across all schools of  Tibetan Buddhism for cultivating the mind.
These teaches embody the essence of Mahayana Buddhism and have been taught by HH Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche in many venues around the world.  These teachings were given in 2017 by Rinpoche at Achen Monastery.  

The Preliminary Schedule of teachings on Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattvas is as in the following table,
