Acharya Lhakpa Tshering will return to Nalanda West on March 11 and 12 to discuss three key points of the Buddhist path. Over the weekend, Acharya will teach from the great Tibetan master Tsongkhapa’s work, “Three Principal Aspects of the Path.” These essential points condense the entire range of the Buddhist teachings, making an easy-to-remember template for practitioners of any level.

On February 19 and 20, at Nalanda West, Archarya taught on the Progressive Stages of Meditation from the text of the Indian master Kamalashila. Using accessible metaphors, Acharya helped participants understand the classic teachings. For example: Imagine your ego as a king or queen, he said, surrounded by an entourage of all your disturbing emotions. One by one, each negative emotion is defeated, which leaves the ego without its guardians. Unprotected, the ego is then easy to defeat.

Acharya is known for his calm demeanor and warm humor. Please join us for a delightful and illuminating weekend on March 11 and 12. Click here to register
