THE STAGES OF THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT
Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:15 pm
with Gen Kelsang Suma
cost: $10 (free for members)
Meditating on ‘Lamrim’ – literally, ‘the stages of the path to enlightenment’ – is the bedrock of the Buddhist spiritual path. It consists of a series of meditations that reveal the key mindsets we need to cultivate if we wish to improve our happiness and attain liberation and enlightenment.
This course is ideal for those with some experience of Buddha’s teachings and for anyone looking to deepen their daily practice.
Classes begin with chanted prayers and a guided breathing meditation. We then listen to a teaching on a Lamrim topic. Finally, we engage in a guided contemplative meditation focused on the content explored in the teaching. There is a chance to ask questions at the end of the class.
“… Je Tsongkhapa said that when we listen to the entire Lamrim we are listening to all Buddha’s teachings and when we practise the entire Lamrim we are practising all Buddha’s teachings.”
