Rinpoche’s original homeland, Nepal, offers a unique and rich cultural backdrop to meditation practice. Surrounded by the stunning Himalayan mountain range and foothills, it is easy to understand why meditation practitioners have been drawn to practice here over thousands of years. Mingyur Rinpoche offers teachings in Nepal at least once a year from his beautiful monastery, Tergar Osel Ling, which overlooks the capital city, UNESCO World Heritage location, Kathmandu.
Under the guidance of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, the Kathmandu Tergar Community encompasses several practice groups and holds workshops and classes on meditation and Tibetan Buddhism, and more. If you are new to meditation and would like to learn more, or if you are a seasoned practitioner and would like to deepen your practice, please join us as we explore the transformative practices of this ancient wisdom tradition.

Nectar of the Path Practice Group
This practice, written by Mingyur Rinpoche in 2010, covers many of the core elements of Buddhist teachings, with chants, aspirations, and meditation practice. This is open to everyone. At the same time, please note that this is a “Buddhist” practice: it is based on the fundamental Buddhist concepts of refuge, bodhichitta, and relationship to the teacher.
