Followed by Week Retreat with Trinlay Rinpoche

June 27-July 3, 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.

From the Editor

Dear Friends,
This week in the U.S. we moved our clocks forward, and the longer daylight hour is a welcome reminder of Spring. In this e-newsletter are links to several teacher tours, programs, and travel opportunities, as well as lovely pictures from Shamar Rinpoche's reliquary stupa inauguration in Germany this past month. We are excited that we are close to publishing the tribute to Shamar Rinpoche called Voices. It is a beautiful book full of memories, stories, and photos; we look forward to sharing it with you very soon.

Warm wishes to all,
Sharon Gamsby, Editor
