During these three days, we will delve into two significant root texts:

  1. The Three Principal Aspects of the Path by Je Tsongkhapa, and
  2. Instructions on Taking Suffering onto the Path by Je Rinpoche

These texts provide profound insights into the Buddhist path and practical instructions on integrating suffering into one’s spiritual journey. Don’t miss this rare chance to deepen your understanding of Buddhist philosophy with one of its most esteemed teachers.

Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was a renowned Tibetan Buddhist scholar and the founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. His profound understanding and teachings have left a lasting impact on the practice and study of Buddhism.

Among his many influential works, two stand out for their deep insights and practical guidance: 

The Three Principal Aspects of the Path: This seminal text outlines the three essential elements for progress on the spiritual path: renunciation, bodhicitta (the mind of enlightenment), and the correct view of emptiness. It serves as a concise guide for practitioners seeking to develop a comprehensive understanding of the Buddhist path.

Instructions on Taking Suffering onto the Path: In this short yet powerful text on Lojong (mind training), Tsongkhapa provides practical instructions on transforming suffering into a means of spiritual growth. These teachings help practitioners embrace difficulties as opportunities for developing compassion and wisdom.


This event is supported by The Maitreya Institute.


ABOUT THE TEACHER

H.E. Serkong Tsenshap RinpocheAt the age of two, Tsenshap Serkong Rinpoche (1984 – present) pointed to the photo of the recently deceased Assistant Tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama and said, “That’s me!” Recognized as the reincarnation of the former Tsenshap Serkong Rinpoche, the young tulku received his Buddhist training initially at Ganden Jangtse Monastery in South India. After deciding to continue his work for the Dharma as a layman, he completed his education at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala. On the advice of the Dalai Lama, he has now completed two years of intensive study of English in Canada and is continuing his higher Buddhist training.
