The Stages of Meditation

An Online Curriculum for Developing Practical Experience
in a Series of Classic Meditation Techniques from the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition

This curriculum was created at the request of Kyabje Garchen Rinpoche by Khenpo Samdrup, based upon his book The Stages
of Meditation, Awakening the Mind
. It is intended to give real world experience in a progressive series of meditation techniques
to enhance the meditation experience of students at all levels—and also to be easy to access by students everywhere. Garchen
Rinpoche expressed that it has been his wish to make such a course available online for years.

How the course works.

This course is designed to take students step-by-step through a series of progressive meditation techniques. Each technique has clear meditation instructions and objectives. These include a minimum time commitment spent in meditation practice of each technique as outlined by Khenpo Samdup. The minimum time requirements ensure that students become thoroughly familiar with each meditation practice before moving on. The course is self-paced and you control the rate you progress through it.
To support your practice throughout the course and answer questions, there are:

Supplemental resources for each technique for students who wish to explore the topic further

A discussion forum for each technique that allows students to engage in discussions with other students in the class

Q&A about the practices that will be answered by teaching assistants, Khenpo Samdup or Kyabje Garchen Rinpoche, depending
upon the nature of the question.

Course Fees: $60 per year

2014 GAR DROLMA SPRING RETREAT
WITH H.E. GARCHEN RINPOCHE



Chakrasamvara & rare instructions on the Stages of Meditation.

Now that our wonderful spring retreat with Garchen Rinpoche has come to an end, we are extremely happy to be able
to offer you the ability to experience these precious teachings through audio downloads. For those of you who could not
attend, it is an opportunity to share in Garchen Rinpoche’s teachings about the Drikung yidam, Chakrasamvara, and his profound, rare instructions on the Stages of Meditation. For those of you who did attend, this will be an opportunity to
relive the experience many times.

These audio downloads are being made available as part of our new Vajra Speech program at Gar Drolma. It is our wish
to preserve and share the precious teachings of Garchen Rinpoche that we’ve had the privilege to receive at the center
with students around the world. In return, a sliding scale donation is requested from $50 to $80 for both weekend’s
teachings.

(click here to order) to help us sustain the activities of the center for the benefit of beings everywhere.

We are always grateful for your support and we wish to thank those who attended the retreat—often by traveling great distances or overcoming other difficulties. In addition, we’d like to give a special thanks to those of you who joined us by Ustream. It is wonderful to know that Garchen Rinpoche’s teachings were able to reach 4000 students from 23 countries.
You give us reason to be even more diligent in our dharma activities.
