The Three Doors

The Three Doors
Our own body, speech and mind can offer direct access to profound inner transformation. The keys to effectively unlocking these three doors may be found in the ancient Bon Buddhist tradition of Tibet, whose powerful meditation practices help to remove physical, energetic, and mental blockages that keep us from achieving self-realization.

Whether you are new to Tibetan Buddhism or an experienced practitioner, these practices are a unique, life-changing opportunity to discover your unbounded being, the source of authentic joy.

  • Through the movement of the body, you will learn how to access the deeper experience of unchanging body.
  • Through the energy of your speech you can experience the deeper experience of ceaseless speech.
  • Through the clarity of your mind you can connect with undeluded mind.

Simple, clear terms are used to introduce the theory and practices of the Three Doors teachings. Participants are guided to effectively integrate these practices into their everyday life.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche offers a brief overview of these teachings in this videotaped interview.

To learn more and register for teachings, visit the website of The Three Doors.

With Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

Below, you can access live and recorded webcasts, online workshops and other, free online teachings by Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and other Ligmincha instructors. 

A worldwide community of online students—a “cyber-sangha”—has evolved informally through their ongoing participation in these teachings. Some study quietly on their own; others have found opportunities for mutual support through posting to an online prayer list, chatting during live webcasts, sharing on forums related to Rinpoche’s online workshops and using other means. 

If you have questions or suggestions regarding the cyber-sangha and how you can participate or assist, feel free to contact us at

Ligmincha Prison Project

Volunteers Are Welcome

The Prison Project, now in its fourth year, is a member of the Prison Dharma Network. It consists of three modules of secularized basic meditation practices that are presented to inmates who have committed to participate in a 12-week program. These practices are:

• The Nine Breathings of Purification
• Sitting in the Nature of Mind
• The Tsa Lung practice
• The Five Warrior Syllables practice

Our instructors have been approved and trained by Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and have received letters of credentialing. They are providing excellent volunteer service to a population that can benefit greatly from these practices. Our goal is ultimately to provide these individuals with skills for reducing stress and improving decision making, reducing recidivism. 

The project includes pre- and post-evaluations. Once we have amassed enough data, we will submit a report to keep everyone informed as to effectiveness.

Excellent research exists regarding the long-term benefits of such meditation practices for stress reduction as well as regarding their relationship to improved ability to function both while incarcerated and upon release into the community.

Ligmincha’s Prison Project now hosts active programs in Europe, Poland, Mexico City and the United States (Oklahoma and Virginia). We have established initial contacts and are making progress toward getting approval from correctional systems in California and Massachusetts, as well. Programs also are being developed in Germany, Denmark, France and Finland. Twenty-six active volunteers are communicating with each other via an email listserv.

Besides the volunteers who assist with the teaching modules, there are several others who are taking the time and energy to act as spiritual pen pals for those who write to Ligmincha asking for assistance while incarcerated. 

As our infrastructure develops, we are looking for volunteer website developers, media experts, translators, instructors, pen pals, regional coordinators and fund-raisers.

We look forward to further developing the Prison Project and welcome volunteers. If you are interested in joining our effort, please email Hannah Lloyd, Ligmincha's Prison Project Coordinator, or email Nicolas Gounaropoulos, European sangha regional coordinator.
