If you are listening to ChNNR teachings I recommend you start with the Guru Yoga with a white Ah and singing the song of the vajra. In your daily life if you can apply his teachings on being present and working with circumstances that would be excellent. In general Rinpoche is transmitting a lot of teachings and you can do all of them that you received transmission for and understand how to do. If you want a program, you can follow the santi maha sangha.
