Khenpo Gangshar’s guidance on using difficulties as the path of Dharma practice

In the summer of 1957, the Buddhist teacher and scholar Khenpo Gangshar foresaw the difficulties that would soon fall upon Tibet and began teaching in a new way that enabled all those who heard him to use the coming difficulties as the path of Dharma practice. The teaching consisted of the essential points of Mahamudra and Dzogchen view and practice, presented in a way that made them easy for anyone to use, even in the most difficult of circumstances.

Khenpo Gangshar Wangpo was one of the most important teachers of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche. Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has taught these teachings many times and passed them on in direct transmission to Ringu Tulku Rinpoche.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will teach on these profound instructions of Khenpo Gangshar and guides us in how to apply them in our current times.
