The teachings cover the life of Shakyamuni Buddha, the four noble truths and mirror the stages of the path to enlightenment in the short text Foundation of All Good Qualities by Lama Tsongkhapa.

The teachings will be streamed live onYouTube for those who can’t join us at the center. Onsite attendance is limited to 20 persons.

This life is as impermanent as a water bubble;
Remember how quickly it decays and death comes.
After death, just like a shadow follows the body,
the results of black and white karma follow.
– from the “Foundation of All Good Qualities
