Buddhism & Technology – Bringing the Teacher & Teachings to You
Ongoing study of Buddhism is a potent way to find inspiration, clarity and reset your mindset. Over the long term, dharma study has an extraordinary result – it changes the way we see our world and opens us to a sense of natural goodness. In the past access to such study has limited who can study Buddhism and when.
In the past serious study required learning a foreign language, quitting one’s job to do extended retreat, travel to foreign countries along with all its perils of illness, high expenses and dubious access.
But the power of modern technology breaks through these obstacles. Access to Buddhist philosophy and practice is more possible than ever – even for those with full busy lives. Tibet’s Buddhist Yogis have demonstrated the possibility of balancing spiritual development with commitment to family, work and society.
A dynamic, full and complex life is not the antithesis of serious dharma study.
It is possible to train, to develop wisdom, to have a rich spiritual practice and yet also participate fully in our world. It makes the world a better place when we can do this. Access to online courses is a powerful ally in this process. It allows for ongoing and in-depth study, right from home.
Pema Khandro Rinpoche has spent many thousands of hours providing teachings and courses online – to bring in-depth dharma training straight to you – right where you are. This includes our ground breaking course – Vajrayana Training and her course for serious students, the Ngakpa Seminary.
Pema Khandro is committed to providing accessibility to teachings because she herself has benefited from listening to old cassette tapes of dharma teachings while driving, gardening, cleaning and going on walks. As the internet developed, she has with met with her own students over skype, on the phone and in web-classes – as well as gathering in person for three yearly retreats. This combination has had tangible benefits for a dynamic and diverse group of students from all over the world, students who live complex lives – but because of their buddhist training – they can live complex lives with clear hearts and simple minds.
With the goal of supporting accessible dharma study in mind – we now have two courses for you to take online at your own pace!

Sutra, Tantra & Dzogchen
With Pema Khandro Rinpoche
Does the study of Buddhism sometimes leave you overwhelmed with questions and contradictions? What is emptiness really? What is enlightenment? Is the goal of the path to transcend or show up? Why are there sometimes contradicting messages in different Buddhist books? What is Buddhist Tantra and what is its relationship to Dzogchen?
Enjoy one of Pema Khandro Rinpoche’s most popular courses, listened to repeatedly by students around the world. For those who love Buddhist Philosophy and wish to know more, this is the class for you!
“Because we are in the information age, when a wide variety of Buddhist teachings are published in books, articles and taught in courses – it can be confusing how all these notions fit together. This course seeks to remedy that. It helps to clarify which principles apply when, why and to whom. Therefore a study like this simplifies and clarifies the path. It organizes Buddhist thought in terms of history, philosophical vehicle and tradition to clarify the answers to the big questions…”
