This is the audio recording from Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche's
visit to PCD-DC on April 1, 2018. It is a traditional commentary on
the Wheel of Analytical Meditation by the 19th century
meditation master and celebrated scholar Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche. The
Wheel has been used by PCD-DC as our study guide for the intermediate
meditation classes. This teaching from Khenpo Norgay is an opportunity
for students to receive these instructions from an official lineage
holder of Mipham's wisdom.
