Introduction to Ngöndro

Monday evenings from 28 August to 18 December 2017, 7-9pm

(including a one week break)

The Longchen Nyingtik Ngöndro is known as the Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse – the terma of Longchenpa, revealed by Jikme Lingpa (1730-1798).

What is Ngondro?
“To accomplish the good of others, we must perfect ourselves, by purifying and transforming our minds. The is the aim of what we call the “preliminary practices”, which establish the foundations of all spiritual progress.” – Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.


The preliminary or “foundation” practices (ngöndro) of Vajrayana Buddhism are profound and powerful means for effecting a deep purification and transformation, at every level of our being. Not only do they prepare the practitioner for the profound path of Vajrayana and teachings of Dzogchen, but they also lead the practitioner gradually towards the experience of enlightenment.

The Melbourne course will be held by Ben Sadler and Garry Rothman. It is open to all Rigpa Melbourne sangha members. There are no fees for this sangha course; it is included in your sangha membership.

Essential reading: Ngöndro Manual
Recommended reading: The Words of My Perfect Teacher by Patrul Rinpoche (Both of these are available directly from ZAM, or by ordering through the Centre through Garry.)
