Lamrim Express: Buddhism in Daily Life & Meditation
Wednesday 20 September @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The book Lamrim Year is an essential guide for meditators who want to develop their mind in the graduated path to enlightenment (lamrim). In these Lamrim Express classes we are embarking on a shared journey into this unique study program, with classes led by Eddie as well as long-term LTC students. Over the course of four months, participants will be able to gain comprehensive insights into the various stages of the path, and support each other in applying this wisdom to daily life.
On our Lamrim Express journey we will:
– Visit all the major topics in the lamrim
– Enjoy a guided meditation to deepen our understanding
– Share examples from our own life and those around us to integrate this wisdom into lived experience
About the text:
The interdependent elements of Lamrim Year are designed to support meditators of various capabilities in establishing and maintaining regular lamrim study and practice until stable realisations are achieved. The text closely follows the lamrim outline in the renowned book, Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, by Pabongka Rinpoche.
The daily quote and text have been selected from four decades of teachings by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and offer a taste of their teaching style and scope. Each day’s teaching concludes with a recap summarising the main points for reflection.
We are excited to host this course for the first time here at LTC! It is suitable for all levels of student. Existing Discovering Buddhism students will especially benefit, as it it will help consolidate your studies and cultivate realisations in the heart.
“The mind is very powerful. Therefore, it requires firm guidance. A powerful jet plane needs a good pilot; the pilot of your mind should be the wisdom that understands its nature.”– Lama Thubten Yeshe
“It is great that even before we become enlightened or generate any lam-rim realizations we are able to offer incredible benefit to others. The person who does this is a very fortunate person and should rejoice very often.”– Lama Zopa Rinpoche
