Ongoing Philosophy Program
In the second half of 2022, our ongoing philosophy program will be completely devoted to the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim). Geshe-la will teach from 18 July until 30 November. The teachings are from Monday until Thursday from 9 – 11 a.m. The Lamrim is like a roadmap for our practice: showing us how all the various types of realizations fit together in a step-by-step manner, leading us from where we are now right up to enlightenment.
The topics covered will include karma (the law of cause and effect), the sufferings of samsara, tackling our various mental afflictions, developing love, compassion, and bodhicitta, the six perfections, developing concentration (calm abiding), and the wisdom of emptiness and dependent arising (special insight).
Through teachings, discussions, and meditations, Geshe-la will guide us on how to progress on the path to enlightenment step by step. Besides the teachings in the mornings, there will be time for discussion, meditation, and self-study.
You can join us for the whole program, or you can come for a week or a month.
