Followed by Week Retreat with Trinlay Rinpoche

June 26-July 2, 2016

Trinlay Rinpoche continues his teaching of Chapter 9, Wisdom, from Shantideva's The Way of the Bodhisattva. In this culminating chapter, Shantideva (c. 8th century CE) presents -- through the meticulous philosophical analysis of the Madhyamaka School -- wisdom: the way to overcome confusion, the root of all dissatisfactions in life. Awakening, the ultimate goal of Buddhist practice, is only attainable through wisdom, the unmistaken non-dual discernment of reality.
