Tuesdays, June 21 – August 9, 2022
7:00pm – 9:00pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)
6 teaching sessions, 2 retreat sessions
In this module we will investigate what “samsara” is and how we are stuck in it. Find out what “nirvana” is and how to achieve it. Learn how to be free from suffering and gain practical tools to deal with and eliminate disturbing emotions forever.
We will also introduce the important topics of the Four Noble Truths, the Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, and the six root delusions, and their antidotes.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Venerable Tenzin Namjong studied and trained in Zen and Theravada traditions before embracing the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, due mainly to the kindness of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
He holds a B.A. in Philosophy from Princeton University and has been part of the 19 year Geshe study program at Sera Je Monastery in South India since 2007.
