with Geshe Ngawang Phende

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Lamrim system is a practical, step-by-step presentation of the entire stages of the path to enlightenment, starting from the very beginning of an individual’s spiritual development, and leading progressively to the state of Buddhahood. As such, it is a system that is practice, rather than theory-oriented.
