September 2 - 7, 2022

Discovering the Dharma II


In Discovering the Dharma II, H.E. Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche covers key Buddhist teachings, including karma, emptiness, and dependent origination over five days of engaged learning and guided practice.

Simultaneous translation will be available in Chinese.

NOTE FOR ONLINE ATTENDEES: Please note that you must attend the Discovering the Dharma teachings in person to qualify for Discovering the Dharma IV.


Dependent Origination: Examine How All Things Are Connected and Conditional
Study one of the fundamental insights of Buddha: Everything exists in relation to other things. All things exist in a conditional state and in a continual process of change. This is a fundamental building block for developing greater insight, awareness and inner transformation.

Karma: Review the Law of Actions and Consequences
Introduce yourself to the non-theistic, rational, ethical system that teaches how intention—in physical actions, speech and thought—always leaves imprints that lead to consequences at a later time. Learn the facts about the law of cause and effect. Know how to reduce harmful acts and increase helpful acts. Find out ways to deal with life most effectively and take control of your future.

Death and Rebirth: Explore the Real Nature of Cyclical Existence
Understand the process of death and rebirth; what dies and what is reborn. Learn to recognize and fulfill your highest purpose in this life, and develop the skills to help yourself and others at death.

Meditation on Emptiness
The realization of emptiness is imperative to attain freedom and enlightenment. Learn analytical meditation, which helps break through the shell of our preexisting concepts and creates the right conditions to eventually experience emptiness. Familiarize yourself with stabilizing meditation and resolve the nature of mind as taught by Mahamudra teachers.


  • Interactive sessions with teachings and Q & A
  • Guided meditation
  • Small group discussion (by language)
  • Tsa-Tue yoga practice
  • You are encouraged to engage in Tsa-Tue Yoga, Solitary Meditation, and Walking Meditation between sessions


There are no prerequisites for this program; it is appropriate for meditators at all levels and those simply interested in exploring the teachings. Although it is part of the Discovering the Dharma series,  the first three programs may be taken in any order.
