a public talk

What is enlightenment and how do you get there? Come hear an introduction to the purpose of Lamrim, the subject matter of the retreat that Venerable Sangye Khadro is leading this week.

The genre of teachings known as the Stages of the Path (Tibetan: Lamrim) represents a synthesis of the entire path to enlightenment. Based on Atisha’s Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment, they present the essence of all the Buddha’s teachings in a clear and concise way, easy to understand and apply in meditation.

about the teacher

Originally from California, Venerable Sangye Khadro (Kathleen McDonald) began studying Buddhism with Tibetan lamas in Dharamsala, India, in 1973. She became a nun in Nepal the following year, and received full (bhikshuni) ordination in 1988.

At the request of her teachers, she began teaching in 1980, and since then has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in various countries around the world, occasionally taking time off for personal retreats. She served as resident teacher in Buddha House, Australia, for two years and in Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore for eleven years.

From 2008–2015 she followed the Masters Program at Lama Tsong Khapa Institute in Italy. Her book, “How to Meditate”, is a best selling book of Wisdom Publications.
