In Kathmandu there are three different practice groups that follow the meditation instructions of Mingyur Rinpoche’s Joy of Living program. In this program, we learn how to use the body, sensory experiences, thoughts, emotions, and even awareness itself as supports for meditation.

Under Mingyur Rinpoche’s guidance, Tergar International has developed a Meditation Practice Group program to support groups that meet regularly to learn, discuss, and practice meditation, but who do not have access to a trained Tergar practice leader, facilitator, or instructor. Each session of this program includes two guided meditations, questions for discussion, selected readings from Mingyur Rinpoche’s two books, and take home meditation exercises. Practice groups operate independently of Tergar International, though more mature groups may eventually evolve into official Tergar Communities.
