The Third Aspect: The Correct View of Emptiness

The wisdom realizing emptiness, the true nature of reality, is profound. Through gaining experience of it, we are able to let go of all the internal obstacles that hold us back from becoming who we really wish to be. Indeed, gaining a deep realization of emptiness has the power to liberate us from suffering altogether and to help us to actualize our highest potential, enlightenment.

This course is based on the teachings in Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's latest book, The Mirror of Dharma. Dharma means the teachings of enlightened beings, and this book is directed at those who sincerely wish to make practical progress on their spiritual path. The Mirror of Dharma clearly shows how we can solve our daily problems of anger, uncontrolled desire and ignorance, and how to make our life happy and meaningful.

Kadam Lucy James will share the commentary to this new book in this special series of classes, which are open to everyone. As one of Venerable Geshe-la’s earliest disciples, she brings to KMC Colorado deep experience  from several decades of practice, and inspiring, insightful and practical teachings and guided meditations.

Each class consists of a teaching, meditation, prayers and time for some in-depth discussion.

The Book—The Mirror of Dharma

The Author: Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

"We can see and find the sun of the supreme happiness of enlightenment from The Mirror of Dharma. How fortunate we are." — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

The author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, is an internationally-renowned meditation master and scholar. In this book, he explains as practical instructions the complete path to enlightenment, based on his deep experience gained from a lifetime spent in meditation.
