The Path to Enlightenment - a Lamrim Meditation Retreat
About the Retreat Lamrim, a Tibetan term that means stages of the path, is a special arrangement of Buddha's teachings that reveals the path to enlightenment. This retreat offers the opportunity to listen to Lamrim teachings and meditate deeply on their meaning. In each session, Gen Khedrub will give a short commentary to the Lamrim meditations as they are presented in the book Modern Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, followed by time for prayers and contemplation. A few sessions will be self-guided in which there will be time for personal study - see schedule below. Everyone is welcome to attend any session; it is not necessary to attend the entire retreat or an entire day. A light dinner will be served each day.
