Courses offered by the Rigpa Shedra

Online component of the 2021 Rigpa Shedra course

Have you ever thought of putting a bit more compassion in your life for real? Isn’t it time to stop procrastinating and start to genuinely study and practise? Connect online with the Rigpa Shedra and let the wisdom and compassion of Shantideva transform your day wherever you are!

His Holiness the Dalai Lama says: “If I have any understanding of compassion and the bodhisattva path, it is entirely on the basis of studying the Bodhicharyavatara that I possess it.”

Follow in his footsteps and join the Bodhicharyavatara Course with weekly highlights from the Rigpa Shedra East in Pharping, Nepal, from 16 January to 14 May . You will have the chance to study at home Shantideva’s outstanding treatise on entering the Bodhisattva’s way of life. This course is particularly designed for new students. The Bodhicharyavatara will be taught directly in English by senior shedra student, Verena Pfeiffer.
