Special Insight Chapter Discussion Group

With Tubten Pende

June 26 - July 31, 2024

Wednesdays, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Online only via Zoom

Join us for the next 6 week block of discussions on the Insight Chapter of the Lam Rim Chenmo (Lama Tsong Khapa’s Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path), that was formed at the advice of Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche.

Answering our questions and discussion is the most efficient way for him to address this subject which would normally take many months to teach thoroughly. Therefore, we plan to form that discussion group, led by Tubten Pende, to meet weekly for six weeks, followed by similar durations with breaks in between. We will be using The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Vol. III), published by Snow Lion as the basis for our discussion. We look forward to your participation.
