with Kadampa Teacher Mike Racadio
Thursday evenings 7:00pm – 8:30pm
This course looks at the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment or Lamrim in Tibetan. This practice is the backbone of Kadampa Buddhism. Lamrim is a special set of instructions that includes all the essential teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni arranged in such a way that all his Hinayana and Mahayana teachings can be put into practice in a single meditation session. It was compiled by the great Indian Buddhist Master Atisha, who was invited to Tibet by King Jangchub Ö in AD 1042, and who spent the rest of his life there spreading pure Dharma. This course is based on the text The New Meditation Handbook by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.Rinpoche.
