THE PATH OF MEDITATION
THE NINE YĀNAS PATH
The Nine Yānas Path provides a scriptural and philosophical basis for all teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Rinpoche. It follows the traditional teachings and practices of the Nyingma lineage and incorporates teachings and texts of all Vajrayāna traditions and philosophical schools. Phakchok Rinpoche’s approach is guiding students to study and practice the entire Nine Yānas step by step.
THE TRADITIONAL VAJRAYĀNA PATH
The Traditional Vajrayāna Path focuses on the path of the Nyingma tradition with an emphasis on the practices of the Chokling New Treasures tradition (Chokling Tersar). This path requires receiving the empowerments, transmissions and explanations together with study and learning in order to assimilate the views and methods that underlie the path of secret mantra practice.
