Internet Dharma Training with His Eminence Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche and Authorized Dzogchen Buddha Path Dharma Teachers

Join us for an international gathering of the Dzogchen Buddha Path Sangha for this Internet Teaching and Training Program!

Due to the current pandemic, we are unable to gather for our annual Summer Retreat this year. Thus, the Dzogchen Shri Singha Foundation is hosting this Internet Teaching and Training Program to perpetuate the Dzogchen Buddha Path Lineage and create peace and happiness in this world.

We invite all virtuous beings to apply for this wonderful internet teaching and training program to learn from His Eminence Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche and Dzogchen Lineage Dharma Teachers. The Dzogchen Buddha Path Internet Teaching and Training Program is a vibrant and unique experience that combines state-of-the-art technology and the time-tested Buddhist tradition of learning, contemplation, and meditation to enlighten the hearts and minds of Dharma practitioners. This one-of-a-kind program is suitable for all levels of students who have a sincere wish to learn and practice The Buddha Path.

Because students with various levels of Dharma learning and practice require different levels of Dharma instructions, this program will consist of multiple classes according to the capacity, needs, and knowledge of each student. Students on every level will receive practical and profound teachings, real-life Dharma skills, and immeasurable wisdom blessings.

The excellent structure of our annual retreat program has been auspiciously adapted to benefit international practitioners on the Internet.
