Online Learning

Post by Aspiring.Monk » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:16 pm

I am curious, does the Drikung Lineage have structured online courses like FPMT or Tergar?

Yes, But not quite. There is something new being done at Gar Drolm https://gardrolma.org/gar-drolma-curriculum-offerings/. It has Garchen Rinpoche's blessings.

Thank you Miroku. This is exactly what I was looking for. I like there are only 2 courses, makes it much simpler. I found the FPMT and Tergar sites to be too cluttered with different courses and no advice on where to really start.

Yes they are. :D I would really love to try the stages of neditation one. Looks really interesting!

I'll probably do that one first as I have trouble meditating. Then I'll move on to Essence of the Mahayana.

Thank you again.
