Over the years, a number of people have asked for recordings of Tarchin’s teaching.  In this section we will post a selection of public teachings along with recordings of Tarchin reading from his written work.

Glimpses of ‘Hwa Yen’ – the Heart of Mahayana”

In it Tarchin addresses essential dharma practice in a broad and universal sense.

Between July 26 and August 4, 2018, Retreat at Orgyen Hermitage:

“The Heart of Mahayana”
bodhicitta/bodhisattva –
Samantabhadra, Natural Awakening, and Contemplative Science

During the retreat, Tarchin taught from a newly created Sadhana of Samantabhadra, a PDF of which can be found in ‘writings’ under ‘practices/sadhana’  Unedited recordings of these teachings are posted here with the idea that they might add depth of appreciation for people who want to work with this sadhana.
