VajrasattvaWelcome to TLC Transitional Life Care as we study a film series of profound Vajrayana teachings on “end of life” practices, an opportunity to help us expand our knowledge and skills. Friends of Lama Tharchin, Vajrayana Foundation’s film archive, and Vimala Video, Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche’s archive, have both offered a treasure trove of such films springing from the Dudjom Tersar lineage of the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition, all suitable for beginning to advanced practitioners and able to illuminate spiritual practices of any tradition.

These instructions will guide us to deeper clarity and understanding so that we may more effectively and compassionately prepare ourselves and serve our community.
