In this three month course, Venerable Robina Courtin will teach Lam Rim as presented by the 14th century Tibetan scholar Lama Tsongkhapa. Lam Rim is the crown jewel teachings that explain the gradual and complete path to buddhahood. It lays out key buddhist philosophical points in a systemic and gradual way based on the capacities and motivations of the practitioners.
