“Lamrim” is a Tibetan word that means “Stages of the Path to Enlightenment” and it is the heart of Kadampa Buddhist meditation practice. Lamrim is divided into two parts: Sutra and Tantra. Sutra is comprised of Buddha’s public teachings helping the spiritual practitioner to understand the nature of ordinary life, how to develop a pure heart of compassion, and how to gain insight into the true nature of reality. Tantra is the quick path to enlightenment, harnessing the power of imagination and the understanding of the subtle body to propel us forward quickly on the spiritual path.

In this short two-week course, based on the teachings at the International Kadampa Summer Festival in England at our mother Center, Manjushri KMC, Gen Rigpa will provide an overview of the Kadampa path to real happiness, sharing practices and ideas that will help us transform our life into the Pure Land of Lamrim.

Everyone is welcome to attend the classes in this series. No experience necessary.

About Classes at Kadampa Meditation Center LA

General Program (GP) classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The classes are designed to help those looking for Buddhist wisdom to help with stress relief and relaxation, as well as those interested in exploring the nature of the mind, and pursuing the Buddhist path.

Classes explore the basic framework of Buddhist teachings and meditation and explain how to use Buddha’s advice in our daily lives to solve our problems. All General Program classes are based on commentaries by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

A typical class consists of a guided relaxation meditation, a teaching based on the meditation topic, and final contemplative meditation. Although classes are given in a series around one specific theme, they are drop-in in nature and can be taken individually, as each class topic is self-contained.

GP classes last approximately 1.5 hours. Chairs and cushions are provided by the Center. No special clothing is required, and there is no physical exercise, yoga, or stretching involved.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of belief; you do not need to be Buddhist to attend.
