Lamrim – The Stages of the Path class – Fall 2018
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The best way to make the most of this life of leisure is to receive experiential instruction on all the stages of the path from the way to rely on a spiritual teacher up to calm abiding and special insight, and then to practice them each day…causing transformational experience of the stages of the path to arise.” The First Panchen Lama

Lamrim translates as “stages of the path” or “graduated path” and is a detailed and practical presentation of Buddha Shakyamuni’s teachings for the sincere practitioner. There are many different versions of Lamrim taught in the various lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. All are based on Atisa’s 11th century root text “A Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment”. In this course, we will follow Je Tsongkhapa’s outline of the Lamrim from the “Lamrim Chenmo: The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment” and Pabongka Rinpoche’s commentary on Lama Tsongkhapa’s text, titled “Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand”. The classes will be led by student teachers Dan D’Agostino and Cristina Sanchez, and will involve guided meditations, teachings on the relevant topics, as well as time for discussion and questions. While the course is open-ended and people are welcome to attend at any time, it would be most beneficial for participants to attend the majority, if not all, of the classes as the topics build on one another

Now Monday nights – weekly, from 7pm-8:30pm

Dharma Yoga with Cristina – Tuesdays 6pm-7:15pm

Dear GC Sangha,

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season! I’m back from the holidays, well-rested and brimming with enthusiasm for the coming new year.

Starting next Tuesday, January 8th I will be offering a 75 minute yoga class at Gaden Choling that will combine movement, pranayama and meditation as we explore the 10 Paramitas (that’s right, 10!), one paramita per week. The class will run through to March 12th and is open to all, beginners and seasoned practitioners alike, for a drop in fee of $10. Please bring a mat and stretchy or loose-fitting clothes.

Please contact GC if you have any questions,

Hope to see you there!
