Bodhicharyavatara Q and A
Please join us for these bi-monthly live sessions with Rinpoche and ask your question live or send them in advance using the comments areas or forms on any of the Bodhicharyavatara teaching posts or below.
Written questions submitted will continue to be gathered until 7pm the evening before the event.
To access these live sessions, register using the button below. You will then receive an email with a link to the zoom webinar which you can use on the day of the event.
You can now use the same link for all the Q&A sessions for the rest of the year. You only need to register once.
The live sessions will be conducted using Zoom Webinar.
Rinpoche will start by answering a few of the written questions submitted via the website followed by questions asked live via Zoom.
You will be able to use the “Raise Hand” function in the Zoom App to be queued to ask Rinpoche a question face to face.
If there are no more live questions, Rinpoche will return to answering questions submitted via the website. If there are too many written questions to answer during the live session, Rinpoche may record an additional video session in which he will answer these remaining questions. This will be added to the Archive shortly afterwards.
Please note that there are usually around 300 people attending. Therefore raising your hand doesn’t guarantee that there will be time to get to your question. We appreciate your patience.
Please also note that both you (your video image) and your question will potentially be broadcast live to everyone watching and will also be recorded to be made available on the Archive as a recorded video after the session. If you are not comfortable with that you can simply submit your written question on any of the recent Bodhicharyavatara Course teaching posts either using the form or comments area.
The Zoom webinar is limited to 500 attendees, so please arrive on time to ensure that you can get a place.
We hope to have live simultaneous translations into French, German, Spanish and Portuguese available in Zoom.
