How do you get to Oz? Follow the yellow brick road.

How do you get to Enlightenment? Follow the lamrim, the graduated path.

Join Geshe Gelek as he guides us to selected landmarks in the road to enlightenment.

Geshe-la will complete teaching on Renunciation January 13, 2021.

Beginning Wednesday, January 20, Geshe-la will lead us through the text Recognizing the Mother: A Song on the Experience of the Middle Way View in preparation for an online teaching from His Holiness the Dalai Lama in February.

 

Upcoming lamrim topic (beginning after Recognizing the Mother):  Eight Verses of Thought Transformation

About the lamrim: In his great compassion, Shakyamuni Buddhia opened the gates to the road to enlightenment through his teachings.

Many years later, Lama Atisha organized all of the Buddha's teachings into a step-by-step guide -- a road map to the territory of practice --  in a short text called "Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment."

Lama Tsongkhapa (the founder of our Gelugpa lineage) wrote a detailed explanation of Lama Atisha's text to help students understand and practice the instructions, called The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim Chenmo). This lamrim foundation is the basis of all practice in our lineage, including tantra.

These incredible teachings by Geshe Gelek on this text are a rare and precious opportunity to gain insights into how to practice.

The Lamrim Class will continue review of teachings on calm abiding at 6:45 pm and Geshe-la will arrive at 7 pm.

   These teachings can be accessed via Zoom or on YouTube.
