Drepung Loseling Monastery, Inc. presents

Tibetan Buddhist Study Group
Led by
Geshe Ngawang Phende

April 21 – July 28, 2016
Every other Thursday starting April 21
7:15 – 9:00 pm

 

   

Geshe Ngawang Phende will conduct this series of 8 informal teaching sessions based on the second half of his book “Reducing Suffering through the Study and Practice of Buddhist Psychology".

Each session will include meditation and chapter analysis with discussion allowing participants to ask questions about the current topic. Students should come prepared to class by having read the chapter to be discussed along with any questions pertinent to that specific chapter. This will target the session and enable the classes to be more effective.

The Book is available at our giftshop for $20.00 plus tax.
There is also a downloadable Kindle version available through Amazon.com.

Registration fee for this series is $40 for DLM Members and $65 for non-members. You may join at any time. Please note this series is not prorated.

To register please call the Administrative Office at: 404-982-0051.
 
A voluntary offering to the teacher is customary in the Buddhist tradition.
