Teachings with Venerable Geshe Rabten
~ Every Wednesday evening from 7:00pm to 8:30pm ~
Using commentaries from different Buddhist texts and drawing on his experience and insight, Geshe Rabten provides techniques for everyday living. The teachings are given in Tibetan and expertly translated into English by Venerable Lozang Dorje, our resident translator.
Everyone is most welcome to attend and there is no need for prior knowledge of Buddhism as Geshe-la makes his advice very accessible. At the end of each evening Geshe-la invites questions from the students.
There is no need to book for these evenings and there is no charge. The class is held in our main meditation room. The teachings concentrate on a particular text and are ongoing each week. However you may join the class at any time, as each evening presents relevant and practical guidance for everybody.
The text which is currently being presented is:
“Words of My Perfect Teacher”
by Patrul Rinpoche
… a guide to the graduated path to Enlightenment.
This is a classical commentary on the preliminary practices of the Longchen Nyingtin – one of the best known cycles of teachings and a spiritual treasure of the Nyingmapa School, the oldest Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
