Karma Continued Lam Rim Series

With Venerable Steve Carlier

September 28 - October 19, 2023

“Every single action performed by body, speech, or mind eventually produces a specific reaction. For example, an unwholesome attitude will definitely culminate in problems and suffering, while a wholesome, clean-clear mind always brings happiness.”

“Understanding the karmic connection between causes and effects will give us the energy to change ourselves.”

Lama Yeshe, LYWA

About the Series

Due to the extensive nature of the topic of Karma, Venerable Steve will be continuing the previous Karma series by adding an additional 4 weeks. Venerable Steve will be using The Middle Length Stage of the Path to Awakening by Lama Tsongkhapa as the core text for this continued series. This text is used for studying the stage of the path on the Basic Program. It offers detailed explanations of various Buddhist concepts. Venerable Steve will also draw upon passages from the Lam Rim Chenmo by Lama Tsongkapa.
