As the Three-Year Retreat has finished, transcribing will be relying much more heavily on the national teams and many of them will submit transcripts into DSpace directly. So, DSpace will become a much more integrated part of the work of the transcribers world-wide.
Transcripts form a major backbone of Rigpa's work. We thank all the transcribers and coordinators for their hard work. Without you, many many things would not be possible!!!

This Three-Year Retreat has broken all records for this kind of retreats. It is certainly the first retreat of this kind which is fully recorded digitally in 5 languages.
There have been more than 500 teaching sessions, not to mention the additional presentations of Rigpa's students

Even though it is quite short, Rinpoche manages to communicate the starting point of the teachings of the Buddha.
You can get a DVD of the full teaching from the zamstore.

Although little known in the West, Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö was of the greatest importance for the spread of the Tibetan Buddhist teachings over the Western hemisphere. At that time in Tibet there was no other master that received the respect from followers of all traditions. Since he himself, following in the footsteps of his predecessor Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, had gathered, studied, practiced and taught all the different lineages of Tibetan Buddhism everyone claimed him as a great teacher of their very own tradition.

The Treasury of Wisdom is in need of quite a bit of money to keep on going in order to provide all the materials necessary to produce the home retreat, the parallel programme, the Rigpalinks and so on.
If you wish to donate, even if it is just a few bucks, please visit our donation page.
And, by the way, the transcribing team desperately needs support. Please contact Petra Brinkhaus if you want to help.
