‘We can see and find the sun of the supreme happiness of enlightenment from The Mirror of Dharma. How fortunate we are.’
Ven Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
The book ‘The Mirror of Dharma With Additions’ — Dharma means the teachings of enlightened beings — gives practical advice on how we can solve our daily problems of uncontrolled desire, anger and ignorance, and how to make our human life meaningful.
The author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, is an internationally renowned meditation master and scholar. In this book, he explains as practical instructions the complete path to enlightenment, based on his deep experience gained from a lifetime spent in meditation.
In these classes we will explore this extraordinary book – in particular the meditations on the stages of the path to enlightenment (Lamrim). The classes will include a commentary and guided meditations.
The classes are suitable for everyone, but are particularly helpful for those interested in learning more about Buddhist meditation and practice.
In this series of five classes we will explore the meditations on the ‘Initial Scope’:-
12 April: Meditation on the preciousness of our human life
19 April: Meditation on death
26 April: Meditation on the danger of lower rebirth
3 May: Meditation on going for refuge
10 May: Meditation on karma
Whenever possible the classes are offered live on Monday evenings at 7pm – on occasion it may be necessary to pre-record them. Available online for 48 hours. Each class is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes long.
