Rinpoche begins the weekend with a public talk on the preciousness of having a genuine spiritual teacher and guide. It is through the guidance of this kind and compassionate spiritual friend that we are able to traverse the ground, path and fruition towards attaining supreme awakening. Rinpoche offers advice on what to look for in the qualities of a teacher, how to relate to one and be a genuine student, and the importance of cultivating devotion. The remaining four sessions of the weekend are devoted to understanding the need for the two accumulations of Merit and Wisdom. Emptiness and luminosity, the twofold purity of Buddhahood, are inherent within all of us. They do not need to be sought elsewhere because they reside within us in their entirety, but if we do not remove the obstacles that obscure their presence, these qualities will not become manifest. It is the accumulation of merit and wisdom with pure motivation that assists us in driving away the clouds that hide our true nature. Five talks on one MP3 CD.
  • "Mainly English" Edition
  • Because Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche spoke for long periods of time in Tibetan, his long monologues have been curtailed so that the continuity of the English translations of these teaching is not broken. Thus, the voice heard for the vast majority of the time is that of the translator, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso. The unedited teaching (including all Tibetan) is available on DVD.

  • MP3CD Recordings
    MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have MP3 or MP3-WMA clearly marked on the front of it.
  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
