• MINDROL LEKSHEY SUMMER PROGRAM<br />"Dawning of Excellent Wisdom"

Mindrol Lekshey Summer Program

In 2016, Lotus Garden held the first annual Mindrol Lekshey Summer Program. This new expanded program evolved naturally from the richness of the annual Shedra and will continue to host the teachings of His Eminence Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche and Her Eminence Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche. In addition, the Summer Program will now offer a reinvigorated schedule and several exciting new forums in keeping with the needs of the growing Sangha. Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche noted “In keeping with the principles of impermanence and change, it is imperative to keep growing and changing with the times.”

As envisioned by Rinpoche, the Mindrol Lekshey Program will provide a framework in which both senior and newer students can start a conversation about living more meaningful lives in the Buddhadharma—and developing the skillful means to do so. Moreover the Summer Program will offer a selection of theoretical and philosophical studies, the major and minor sciences, and intensive training in the rituals of the Mindrolling lineage.

It is with this inspiration and with great delight that Lotus Garden has instroduced the new Summer Program. The entire Mindrol Lekshey Program is open to all.
