In this series, we will embark upon a series of meditations known as the ‘Stages of the Path’, sometimes referred to by its Tibetan name ‘Lamrim’. These ‘stages’ are all the essential insights taught by Buddha, arranged in the order in which they are to be realized. Lamrim is a basically a step-by-step guide to experiencing the full joy and meaning of our human life.

In this presentation, based on the Modern Buddhism arrangement in How to Understand the Mind by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, we will explore how our relationships, job, enjoyments, commute etc., can be made part of a joyful path leading us ever closer to the fulfillment of our highest potential, enlightenment itself!

Through talks, guided meditations, discussion and Q&A’s, we will learn how to take these extraordinary life-affirming and empowering insights and tools to heart.
