In addition to Mangala Shri Bhuti’s annual teaching programs, we also offer a series of online courses for students to study basic meditation techniques, topics particular to the Buddhist path, and also a course specifically about our Mangala Shri Bhuti lineage.

All students, regardless of their level of practice, are encouraged to begin with the first course, Awakening the Mind, Softening the Heart. This course provides an overview of crucial topics for engaging one’s heart and mind in the profound methods of transformation taught by the Buddha. Based on teachings given by Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, we cover the topics of shamatha meditation, self-reflection, egolessness of self, and further explore shamatha in the context of meditation on the four immeasurables. More information and registration link can be found here.

The second course, Being Buddhist, covers essential topics related to the Buddhist path like Refuge and Bodhicitta. We explore Bodhicitta in aspiration and application, and also explore the topic of Buddha Nature. More information about this class is given when one is enrolled in Awakening the Mind, Softening the Heart. Cost of this course is $100.

The third course, Nyinthig, is designed for those who are interested in learning more about the Longchen Nyinthig lineage, and especially the Mangala Shri Bhuti sangha. All three introductory courses are a pre-requisite to become a Member of Mangala Shri Bhuti. Topics included in this course are: Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind Toward the Dharma, Lineage and Following a Spiritual Friend,  Vajrayana and the Mangala Shri Bhuti Lineage. More information is given about this course when one is enrolled in the Being Buddhist course. Cost of this course is $50.
