Access options for Rigpa sangha members

In January and February 2021 Rigpa is transitioning from its former streaming website. By Losar, all live and replay streamed events will be hosted here on Prajna.

Here are a few important reminders about Prajna:

There are different levels of access:
  • Basic free access - available to anyone and gives access to a range of public content.
  • Sangha basic access (free) - gives access to limited content based on your mandala. 
  • Full membership (additional fee or part of your Rigpa subscription) - gives access to the whole Prajna library, based on your mandala. The library is updated on a monthly basis. 
  • Teaching Events (additional fee) - some special events are not included in a membership subscription and are paid for separately.

To access ‘sangha-only’ content:
  • You need to be registered directly with Prajna (it is not automatic for sangha members unless Prajna subscription is included as part of your Rigpa membership. Register here.
  • Once you have registered, log in with your Admin and Care login

Membership fees - basic sangha content is free and there is an additional membership fee to access a wider range of content. Prajna aims to support you on the path and is not-for-profit, so the membership fee is used to produce and upload new teachings to the library every month as well as to run the platform. *Note: In some sangha countries, Prajna is included in your Rigpa membership so there is no additional payment, and for others it is paid separately.
