Realizing Emptiness - celebrating Lama Tsongkhapa's Legacy

Realizing Emptiness - celebrating Lama Tsongkhapa's Legacy

COURSE with Geshe Tenzin Namdak

WED | 18 SEPTEMBER – 27 NOVEMBER | 19:00 - 20:30
            ( NOT 9, 23 OCTOBER, 6 NOVEMBER )


What is the ultimate nature of reality and how do we come to understand it? His Holiness the Dalai Lama always states the importance of study to understand this reality in order to eliminate ignorance, the root cause of suffering, and refers to the works of Lama Tsongkhapa.

This year is the 600th anniversary of the passing of this renowned scholar and practitioner and the first text that LamaTsongkhapa composed after realizing this ultimate nature of emptiness was In Praise of Dependent Origination. During this course Geshe Namdak will guide us through this profound and special text to get a better understanding of relativity and emptiness and to create the right causes for us, so that one day we will be able to realize this ultimate nature ourselves. 


Geshe Tenzin Namdak was given full ordination by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and is our new resident teacher.  He recently gained his Geshe degree, the equivalent of a doctorate of philosophy in our education system. A Dutch citizen, he teaches in English and is well known for his warm, gentle, inclusive style.


All welcome. Suggested donation £10 each evening.

Students will benefit from having attended Geshe Namdak's course "An Introduction to Buddhist Philosophy & Psychology" given earlier in 2019. If you did not attend this, ask us for a reading list.  

No-one will be turned away due to lack of funds
