The Queenstown Sessions: a veritable feast! Queenstown, NZ
February 12, 2010 @ 8:00 am – March 9, 2010 @ 5:00 pm UTC-8
The Weekend Sessions, “Understanding Buddha Dharma” comprise a complete courseon Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana (Mahmudra/Dozchen). The progressive path of Buddhism involves moving from one ‘yana’ (vehicle) to the next. This is a detailed explanation of the scope of Buddha Dharma. It is rare indeed to find such an encompassing teaching. It is important to try and follow the course all the way through, session by session. The Lama will explain this in more detail in the course of the Friday night (12 February) session.
The Weekday Sessions, comprise a “Detailed Examination of the Chenrezig Sadhana”. This too, is a complete course. While of great interest to anyone wishing to understand Vajrayana practice it is especially meaningful for those who have been working with the Chenrezig practice through the Centre. This is an opportunity to get to grips with what exactly yidam practice is and why it is so powerful. It is important to try and follow the course all the way through, session by session. This will be a revelation. The Lama will explain this in more detail in the course of the Friday night (12 February) session.
