Summer Sangha Gathering

With Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

Flexible Dates

Gomde California will host a Summer Sangha Gathering to receive Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s teachings online, live-streamed from Gomde Germany-Austria, in two parts from August 25th – September 4th. This is a time for the Sangha to come together to practice, receive instructions from our beloved teacher, and relax in the golden atmosphere of Gomde in August.

Teaching Schedule for Global Livestream from Gomde Germany-Austria

Part One

  • Aug 25th & 26th: Teachings with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
  • Aug 27th: Ngakso Puja (online streaming TBD)
  • Aug: 28th & 29th: Teachings
  • Aug: 30th & 31st: Empowerments (NO ONLINE STREAMING)

Part Two

  • September 1st – 4th: Teachings with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche


On August 30th and 31st teachings will NOT be live-streamed, as those will be empowerment days at Gomde Austria. Additionally, the Ngakso Puja will be practiced in Gomde Austria on August 27th. On these days we will engage in group Vajrasattva practice (Sangtik Dorsem) in the mornings and evenings.

Rinpoche’s teachings will begin at 6:00 am PDT on teachings days, therefore participants should arrive one day in advance of whatever teachings they plan to attend.

Attendance Criteria

If Sangha members would like to join Part Two, they will need to meet one of the following criteria:

  1. Attend Part One of this series of teachings (viewing Part One at home is acceptable)
  2. Have started ngondro or are genuinely about to start ngondro
  3. Have started the Second Excellence or are about to start the Second Excellence.
  4. Have previously attended Part Two of a seminar with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

Students are able to register for partial attendance at Gomde if they are watching the teachings from home and would also like to visit the center for a few days. The program will be supplemented by group practices, Dharma talks, community events, and plenty of special moments by the Eel River in late summer.
