The Union of the Two Truths

with Gen Samten & Kadam Lucy James 
Hosted By KMC New York

Join KMC New York for a special and experiential journey into a full understanding of emptiness, the union of the two truths. Buddha taught many levels of the union of the two truths according to both Sutra (where he explained the union of conventional and ultimate truth) and Tantra (where he explained the union of appearance and emptiness). It is through these teachings that we can complete our understanding of Dharma and attain enlightenment in this life. We will first find our way into emptiness through the magic of dependent relationship, and then learn how to unite emptiness with compassion and correct imagination. Through this, we will learn:

·  To overcome obstacles to meditating on emptiness such that our mind mixes deeply with it.
·  How to see emptiness in all appearances such that they lose the power to delude our mind.
·  How to live in reality instead of being continually caught up in hallucinations.
·  How to enter into the mandala through transforming daily appearances into the path.
·  How to experience reality as the nature of great bliss.

Don’t miss this special lineage of a fully-realized meditator — the heart practice of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and of the Ganden tradition – as presented by two of Geshe-la’s earliest disciples, Gen Samten and Kadam Lucy James.

We at KMC Colorado would like to encourage you to attend this rare retreat hosted by KMC New York! This is a special opportunity to hear very rare teachings given by our two of the New Kadampa Tradition's most preeminent teachers.
