Event Description

A Precious Garland of the Supreme Path

The Instructions of Gampopa: “A Precious Garland of the Supreme Path” Three-Day Virtual Retreat with Khenpo Karten Rinpoche and Guest Teachers Lama Leshe Zangpo and Thich Minh Tinh (Thay Kozen)

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, January 16th through January 18th, 2021 10:00am to 12:00pm and 2:00pm to 4:00pm Pacific Time



Spend three days with Tibetan Monk, Scholar, and Meditation Master Khenpo Karten Rinpoche as he teaches on The Instructions of Gampopa: A Precious Garland of the Supreme Path, written by the Venerable Gampopa Sonam Rinchen. With warmth and clarity, Rinpoche will draw on his decades of personal study and meditation practice to explain the nature of happiness and methods to cultivate it. Attendees will receive the oral transmission of the text, as well as extensive teachings on one of the masterworks in the Buddhist tradition.

In Precious Garland of the Supreme Path, Gampopa lays out 28 Lists, each containing key oral instructions on all levels of the path to Enlightenment--succinct points for right actions and intentions. The text includes many inspiring and poetic descriptions of the ultimate nature of mind and reality. Teachings will be in Tibetan and English (with English interpretation/translation).
