Sogyal Rinpoche in Bhutan, March 2007
At the end of March 2007, Sogyal Rinpoche visited the Kingdom of Bhutan. He gave a simple, in-depth introduction and thorough grounding in the teaching and practice of the Buddhadharma in a series of two public talks at the Royal Institute of Management, Thimphu, Bhutan.
Bhutan's public television station recorded his teachings and wants to present them within their English-speaking section of their TV programme. Sogyal Rinpoche asked the Treasury of Wisdom, together with Rigpa's Teaching Services department, to edit these teachings for transmission on TV.
This is actually the first time that we are editing teachings for a TV programme. A lot of care has gone into these edits, and the recorded teaching material has been enriched even further with photos and video footage from the Treasury of Wisdom archive.
We hope that we can make these precious materials available to Rigpa students as well. You can of course always quickly fly to Bhutan and enjoy these teachings on TV.
