Tergar programming updates
All in-person Tergar events for the foreseeable future have been canceled, postponed, or moved to an online format. There are a limited number of online workshops you can find listed at tergar.org/events. Soon we will be announcing some online retreat options. More details will be available at events.tergar.org.
Offer of support
During this global pandemic we, or our very close relatives and loved ones, may find ourselves facing serious, or life-threatening, medical issues, perhaps while in isolation. In these times, we may find it helpful to have the support of our lineage. When these circumstances arise, Khenpo Kunga and Lama Trinley, Mingyur Rinpoche’s senior lamas, are most willing to include the person in need in his daily practice and prayers. For more information on how to request prayer support, please click here.
Stay home and meditate
Local Tergar groups all over the globe have switched to online practice sessions, and many are welcoming others to join them. View the group practice calendar to find a session convenient for you.

Reaching people around the globe
With much of the world isolating at home, Mingyur Rinpoche’s teachings have been able to reach an ever-widening audience. For example, his Facebook following has just about tripled in the last few months, and on YouTube, Rinpoche has nearly a quarter of a million subscribers! Check out one of his most popular streamed teachings (more than 71,000 views) here Living with Distress.
