“Without a proper basis in studying and reflecting, we can easily be interrupted by doubts and hesitation.” Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche

Study is extremely important, especially in Buddhism where questioning and debating the logic of the teachings is of vital; nothing should be taken at face value or accepted as a matter of mere faith.

The Trust facilitates opportunities for the study and practice of the Buddhist teachings in general, and specifically the Tibetan Vajrayana lineage of the Chokling Tersar, by inviting qualified teachers, promoting discussion, study and meditation by making relevant books, teachings and practice materials available and affiliating with national and international Rangjung Yeshe Gomde associations and other groups with like aims.

Some of Rinpoche’s many published books are Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen, Bardo Guidebook, Indisputable Truth and Medicine and Compassion.

In these modern times this is made much easier with access to the internet and a huge amount of work has gone into making courses available on line and giving people access to Chökyi Nima Rinpoche’s regular teachings. Please investigate the following sites:

Dharma Sun – Online Teachings and Events
This site hosts online-video Buddhist teachings by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and other masters of the Choklig Tersar Lineage, including the annual Autumn seminar and regular Saturday Talks.

Rangjung Yeshe Institute Online Learning
Study authentic Buddha Dharma Online with Rangjung Yeshe Institute. The inaugural course is an exposition of the Mūlamadhyamakakārikā by Nāgārjuna, a classic Buddhist text that uses logic to challenge all of our assumptions about the nature of reality. This text is taught over the span of two semesters and can be taken for academic credit.

We expect that the Trust’s activities will generate increased interest in the local community, and the Trust aims to meet that interest by inviting teachers, providing information and establishing a meditation group in the local area. The affiliation with international groups with similar aims gives the Trust contacts and the support of many people worldwide.
