Week 1

Blessing Empowerment of the Wisdom Protector Dorje Shugden & Teachings on Lamrim

With Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, General Spiritual Director

The heart of Kadampa Buddhism is the practice of Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightement, which is a special presentation of Buddha's teachings that is easily integrated into modern daily life. By relying on the Wisdom Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden we will quickly gain deep inner experience of Lamrim and transform our life into the very path to enlightenment.

Week 2

Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerments of Heruka & Vajrayogini & Teachings on the Practice

With Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, Deputy General Spiritual Director

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says, "The gateway through which we enter Tantra is receiving a Tantric empowerment. An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature." The empowerments and teachings in Week 2 will open the door to Highest Yoga Tantra, the very essence of Kadampa Buddhism and the quick path to enlightenment.
