Petra about Rigpa

"Since 2007 I attended many Tibetan Buddhist teachings and workshops. In 2013 my Tibetan Buddhist Teacher Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche (www.tulkulobsang.org) granted me permission to pass on Rigpa to others. For me that was a very special moment and I feel grateful and honored that I am allowed to spread this beautiful meditation. Often I am moved to tears when noticing what Rigpa does for my students. Rigpa leads to the realization that everything and everybody belong together. This Unity experience automatically generates a different perspective of life. It leads to more peacefullness, understanding and compassion because you find out that everything just is what it is, without feeling the urge to have an opinion about it"
