A Public Program with Jim Scott

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Approaching Mahamudra: Dealing with Life

Everything we do centers around being happy and avoiding suffering.

What comprises the lasting happiness we seek?

It is the nature of mind.


We need to sharpen our understanding of this nature and know the methods for realizing it.  To do that, learning how to use the suffering of illness, emotional disturbances, and the rest of our confusion is essential.  This is totally central to our lives, not to mention our path.  Nothing could be more relevant.

How to approach Mahamudra by dealing with life’s difficulties skillfully is the main topic of a video in which Khenpo Rinpoche explains a song of realization by Gotsampa, one of Tibet’s great yogis renowned for his realization of Mahamudra. In addition to viewing the video, further clarification will be offered along with singing songs of realization, an essential ingredient in Khenpo Rinpoche’s practice method.

Jim Scott will teach on these issues which are at the heart of  instructions transmitted by Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and other great masters. They will be taught in a manner accessible to any level of practitioner.

This program is open to all.
