In Praise of Dependent Origination, Part 1 | Yangten Rinpoche
January 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
About this teaching
Yangten Rinpoche has been teaching Jamyang students online for several years. In particular, he offered the community a series of teachings on Lama Tsongkhapa’s Song of Experience. We now have the immeasurable good fortune to welcome Rinpoche to Jamyang in-person. As part of his teaching schedule, Rinpoche will begin an explanation of another one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s revered texts, In Praise of Dependent Origination. The verses, written after Lama Tsongkhapa attained enlightenment, express unbounded reverence for the profound reasoning taught by the Buddha so that we may realise emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality, and thereby liberate ourselves and others from the suffering of cyclic existence.
