Study Group on the Ornament of Precious Liberation

April 4 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Due to the risks of covid and its variants, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night classes will continue on Zoom only. To join us via Zoom please click here.

This class will be facilitated by Lamas Depa and Lhadrun. Our primary source, Ornament of Precious Liberation, by the great master of the Kagyu lineage, Lord Gampopa, is considered a spiritual classic of Tibetan Buddhism. HH 17th Karmapa shares in his foreword to the book, that “this text has the power of a direct transmission from master to student” and that Gampopa himself promised that studying this text would be the same as receiving the teachings directly from him.

In order to develop our understanding of this profound work, we will also be referring to Path to Buddhahood, a very accessible and illuminating commentary by Ringu Tulku.

The books used will be:
Ornament of Precious Liberation, translator Ken Holmes, Wisdom Publications
Path to Buddhahood, by Ringu Tulku, Shambala

The material will be screen-shared each class, so it is not necessary to buy the books. The class is open to all levels of experience, and anyone is welcome to join at any time without attending previous sessions. There is no charge for participating.
