Talks and Guided Meditations on the Three Principal Aspects of the Path

$15 per class, free for supporting members

This class is a replay of the Thursday evening GP    

Based on The Mirror of Dharma.

“But even though you may be acquainted with renunciation and bodhichitta,
If you do not posses the wisdom realizing the way things are,
You will not be able to cut the root of samsara;
Therefore strive in the means for realizing dependent relationship.”

The Three Principal Aspects of the Path is a legendary brief poem composed 600 years ago by the extraordinary Spiritual Guide and founder of the New Kadampa lineage, Je Tsongkhapa. In merely 15 verses, Je Tsongkhapa distills the vastness of the Buddhist stages of the path to Enlightenment to three essential realizations. Gaining experience of these three, renunciation, bodhichitta, and the wisdom realizing emptiness, will give us the psychological and spiritual tools we need to confidently and joyfully transform every aspect of our life into our spiritual path.

Kadam Morten will take us on a spiritual journey step by step through the development of each of these three minds, based on the commentary by his Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in his most recent book, The Mirror of Dharma (with Additions), which includes an all-new and startlingly clear translation. Geshe Kelsang’s commentary is an oral instruction arising from his realization and takes us deep into both the profundity and practicality of Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings.

Through talks and guided meditations will take us into the heart of these teachings so that we can gain practical experience of these revolutionizing insights for ourselves. This is the perfect follow-on from the previous series, but also an excellent starting point for those less familiar with Buddhist practice.

The emphasis this month is on the first aspect, renunciation, in which we will learn how to live a happy and creative life, that day by day draws us closer to the actualization of our potential for lasting happiness and perfect freedom from suffering.

Everyone welcome.
