About the event

After I pass away

And my pure doctrine is absent,

You will appear as an ordinary being,

Performing the deeds of a Buddha.” - Buddha, Root Tantra of Manjushri

When we practice the Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa according to the Segyu lineage, we can pacify all our negative karma and obstacles and increase our merit, life span and Dharma realizations. In particular, because Je Tsongkhapa is at once an emanation of Avalokiteshvara (the embodiment of all Buddhas’ compassion), Manjushri (the embodiment of all Buddhas’ wisdom) and Vajrapani (the embodiment of all Buddhas’ power), we can easily increase our realizations of compassion, wisdom and spiritual power. Of these, it is especially important to increase our wisdom because wisdom is the antidote to ignorance, the root of all our suffering.

These classes will be based on the teachings in the book Heart Jewel: The Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism. Gen Norbu will emphasize understanding why Kadampas engage in Heart Jewel practice, understanding the Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa, and how to engage in this practice.
