Devotion, Compassion and Wisdom with Venerable René Feusi
June 18 @ 10:00 am - June 19 @ 4:30 pm
About this teaching
We are delighted that Venerable René Feusi will offer a weekend of teachings at Jamyang in June. Over the course of two days, Venerable René will guide us as we explore the moving practice of Ganden Lha Gyäma, or Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga. This preliminary practice helps us cultivate a pure relationship with our spiritual teachers, as well as Lama Tsongkhapa, the incomparable scholar-yogi whose tradition is the source of all the Buddhist teachings given at Jamyang. Venerable René will combine these Guru Yoga instructions with a teachings on the Lam Rim, specifically the topics of Bodhicitta and Emptiness.
Is this for me?
All are welcome, however these teachings will presume a background knowledge of Buddhism and the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, including the Lam Rim and the concept of Guru Devotion.
18 & 19 June | 10:00-11:00, 11:30-12:30, 14:00-15:00, 15:30-16:30 BST
