July 28
September 1
September 29
October 27

Each session will be held from 3pm- 5pm

Tse Chen Ling’s longtime resident teacher will give a commentary on a text composed bu His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama. This text presents in lucid detail the philosophy of the Middle Way, the pinnacle of the Buddhist view of reality.

In his own words, The Dalai Lama writes his reason for composing this text: "This work has been written as simply as possible in order to make the translation into other languages easier. It is for the benefit of those with fresh minds from both East and West who seek Buddhadharma in general and who especially would like to know the deep and subtle view of selflessness, but who do not have the leisure to study the great teachings of the Madhyamika or the ability to study the scriptures in the Tibetan language."

Ven. Stephen Carlier will provide English interpretation.

English translation of the text will be provided.

$20 (per class) - Regular, non-sponsor seating

Ordained sangha are always welcome free of charge.

At the local monastery of Othok he studied both Dharma and secular subjects extensively before entering Sera Je Monastery eleven years later. He fled Tibet in 1959. Upon his arrival in India, Geshe-la not only continued his monastic studies, but also spent three years at the Sanskrit University in Varansi, earning an MA with honors.
