APRIL 25 - MAY 23, 2018

Dear Sangha members,


Tulku Orgyen Rinpoche's five weeks Online Teaching Course on Lord Maitreya's Uttaratantra Shastra, which explores what we call Buddha Nature, will begin on April 25th 2018. It is the fourth year that Rinpoche has taught online. Other courses include Words of My Perfect Teacher, The Bodhisattva Way of Life and Fight of the Garuda.

The Uttaratantra is one of the Five Treatises of Lord Maitreya, which elucidates the Buddha's definitive teachings on Buddha-essence, the inherent qualities and potential for Buddhahood present in all beings. Just as an acorn, when given the right conditions, can become an oak, the seed of our Buddha Nature can be activated and cultivated. When nourished through teachings, meditation, and contemplation, its essence can flourish into profound spiritual development. This precious text also clarifies the nature and quality of Buddhahood.

As a basis for his teachings, Tulku recommends: Buddha Nature: The Mahayana Uttaratantra Shastra with Commentary by Arya Maitreya (Author), Jamgon Kongtrul (Editor), Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso (Editor), Rosemarie Fuchs (Translator).  

Online Teachings will start on April 25th and will go through May 23rd 2018,
meeting every Wednesday at 6PM Pacific Time.

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions during class via web chat.

If you miss a class, you can watch the recording later.

May this benefit all Sentient Beings
