About this teaching
To get the realisations of the path to enlightenment and to prevent obstacles it is important to purify negative karma and accumulate merit. As a continuation of last year’s commentary on the nine preliminary practices, Geshe Namdak has kindly agreed to give a more elaborate commentary on Lama Tsong Khapa’s Guru Yoga based on the commentaries he received from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and His Eminence Choden Rinpoche.
Is this for me?
This teaching is restricted to those students who are fully enrolled on the Basic Programme at Jamyang London Buddhist Centre.
What can I expect?
A teaching on a fundamental preliminary practice within the Geluk school of Tibetan Buddhism, which will enable students to engage with the practice in a meaningful and transformative way.
About the Teacher
Our courses and classes on Buddhist philosophy and practice rely on a skilled teacher to bring them to life. We’re extremely fortunate to have a supremely qualified Resident Teacher to do just that. After completing his university studies in Hydrology, Geshe Namdak worked as an environmental researcher in the Netherlands. He began studying Buddhism at Maitreya Institute and was eventually ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama before completing the 20-year Geshe degree at Sera Jey monastic university in India, as well as the traditional one-year Vajrayana study program at Gyume Tantric College. Few people can combine this extensive Buddhist education with a rigorous scientific training. The result is Geshe Namdak’s unique teaching style, which is at once incisive, clear, warm and humorous.
