The Foundation of All Good Qualities
DATES -- Jan. 1, Jan. 8, Jan. 15, Jan. 22, Jan. 29, Feb. 5
This is a rare opportunity for anyone wishing to further clarify their understanding of the complete Buddhist path, and who is seeking guidance on how to study and meditate in a manner that deepens over time. These sessions will provide new and old students a strong framework for their spiritual progress along the path to liberation and full enlightenment.
In addition to explaining how to contemplate and practice the stages of the path — the Buddhist Curriculum -- Geshe Nima will give the oral transmission of Je Tsong Khapa's concise text The Foundation of all Good Qualities. He will read the original text in Tibetan while students meditate on their deep wish to develop their practice and gain enlightenment. This is said to be both a blessing and an incredible boost for students of Tibetan Buddhism.
