The Complete Path Year 3 2019

RVR-London-2011-21We are very happy to announce that His Holiness Ratna Vajra Rinpoche will teach Year 3 of The Complete Path at IBA from August 15 to September 4. The topics will be the Preliminary Practices (Ngondro) and Hevajra Cause empowerment.

If you are qualified to attend Year 3 of The Complete Path and wish to register at IBA, please email us at 2register4iba@gmail.com.

 

To qualify, you must have either

  • completed TCP Years 1 and 2, OR
  • completed TCP Year 1 and received Lamdre.

Both Years 1 and 2 can be studied online. If you would like details about this, please email us at the address given above.

Please note that there will be no online course offered for Year 3 as students must receive the Hevajra cause empowerment to receive the teachings. The empowerment can only be taken in person from the teacher, not via the internet.

Students who have already received Lamdre, including the Hevajra cause empowerment and Ngondro teaching, are granted an exemption from Year 3, but His Holiness has said he will ask such students to complete certain commitments if they wish to continue with The Complete Path program. His Holiness will announce these commitments during the teaching at IBA in August.
