The Three Principal Aspects of the Path with Geshe Sherab

Tue, Wed, Thur. nights: Sept 3, 4, and 5

To escape from suffering and find everlasting happiness we have to study and practice the teachings on the path to enlightenment. The teachings of the Buddha were first formulated into what we call the Lam-Rim (The Steps of the Path) by the great Atisha (982-1054).

An essential feature of the lam-rim is its division into Three Principal Aspects:

  • Renunciation
  • Right View
  • Bodhichitta
