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.
