Restriction
Mingyur Rinpoche has asked that these teachings be made available to those who have received permission to practice the foundational practices as well as the appropriate transmissions associated with these practices. If you do not meet these requirements, please respect Rinpoches wish and do not purchase or view these teachings.

Please note: The teachings contained in An Introduction to the Foundational Practices with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche are included on this MP3 CD.

In the Tibetan tradition, the foundational practices, known in Tibet as ngondro, are used to prepare the mind for the spiritual path. These meditations have been taught for centuries, handed down from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage of practice.
 
The foundational practices cover the core elements of the Buddhas teachings. Ngondro: The Foundational Practices of Tibetan Buddhism presents in-depth teachings on these essential meditations by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. Included in Part 1 are Mingyur Rinpoches explanations of the first part of these practices, known as the outer ngondro. The outer ngondro contains a series of four contemplations on the precious human birth, death and impermanence, the law of karma, and the suffering of samsara. These contemplations are designed to help redirect the mind away from thought patterns that create confusion and suffering, toward the state of liberation. Also included on this disc is an introduction to the foundational practices that shows how these meditations relate to the cultivation of awareness and insight.

Included in Part 2 are Mingyur Rinpoches explanations of the second part of these practices, known as the inner ngondro, or unique ngondro. The inner ngondro contains a series of four meditative practices: refuge and bodhichitta, the mantra and visualization of Vajrasattva, mandala offering, and guru yoga. These meditations purify destructive patterns and obscurations, and help the practitioner connect directly with the enlightened qualities of buddha nature.
