Yes, I hope they improve on that in the future. As far as I know, this is their first time broadcasting a whole retreat live, so I'm sure they'll iron out the problems with practice.

I'm just happy they've started doing this! I've mostly been watching the replays, but watched day 5 live, which was perfect until very near the end. Very fortunate, as it's been the most important day so far.

I didn't find them when I looked, however there was a recording of Ukrainian translation on Rangjung Gomde Ukraine profile, German part is fine, English impossible to hear.

7:43 AM (3 hours ago)

to me

Dear Aaron,

In order to be totally clear and to avoid any disappointment, on the last day will be a full day of a mending and purification ceremony and no teachings by Rinpoche available online.



Thank you for your understanding.

Just got this email about a great online seminar with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, looks like a fantastic opportunity!:

Dear Sangha!

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche has begun his Summer 2018 Teaching Tour. For those unable to attend, Rinpoche kindly agreed to make the teachings offered at Gomde Germany-Austria available online in their entirety for students all around the world.

Rinpoche will base his teachings on The Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen, a renowned poetic composition by the 17th century meditation master, Karma Chagmé. The text comprises 8 spiritual songs explicitly highlighting the timeless practice instructions of both Mahamudra ─ the Great Seal ─ and Dzogchen ─ the Great Perfection.

Online Seminar:
There will be English and German translation available. For more information please visit
DharmaSun.org/seminars/

Live-streaming:
To link the greatest number of people possible with the precious Dharma, the first three days of the seminar will be Rinpoche’s personal gift to you! They will be live streamed via Facebook and simultaneously on DharmaSun.org, both without any registration required! (Live streaming will start on 4th August, around 9:30 a.m. CET)

This seminar offers a unique opportunity for students of all levels ─ from beginners to advanced practitioners ─ to receive a series of truly profound teachings. We would therefore ask that you share this notice with all those who might be interested to join us either online or in person.

Your DharmaSun Team
I missed this online seminar, when will be the next one? Also, is there a recording of this one for me to watch?

I only caught snippets of today as I was working, but wow that sounded like a great session.

Looking forward to catching up on the replay.

Specifically asking about videos being on Facebook because I'm not registered on Dharma Sun and am not sure i would be able to if membership is paid...

I asked if Rinpoche would be streaming today.
mike@DharmaSun <mike@dharmasun.org>

1:48 AM (32 minutes ago)

to me

We don't know yet. Rinpoche is presently alone in the shrine hall preparing for the upcoming ceremonies (refuge vows, bodhisattva vows, ocean of Amrita puja). He didn't want the first parts online, the later part is not decided yet. Sorry for these late decisions, but this is how it usually always happens around Rinpoche. We all have to remain very open and spontaneous.

I am glad this is available online, especially since Rinpoche was not able to come to North America this year. This is the next best thing to being on retreat with him.

I am just back from Austria and these teachings where I also met Kelwin and Pero from this forum. We all had a very good time together I think. That text by Karma Chagme is pretty amazing.
