Celebrating Lama Tsong Khapa's Legacy
What is the ultimate nature of reality and how do we come to understand it? His Holiness the Dalai Lama always states the importance of study to understand this reality in order to eliminate ignorance, the root cause of suffering, and refers to the works of Lama Tsong Khapa. This renowned scholar and practitioner composed a text called 'In Praise of Dependent Origination'; written directly after realizing emptiness.
During this course Geshe Namdak will guide us through this profound and special text with teachings, meditations and Q&A, helping us to generate a better understanding of relativity and emptiness and creating the causes for realizing this ultimate nature one day ourselves.
Wednesday July 29 at 20:00 until Sunday August 2, at 17:00
