(Continuous course running on Tuesdays, click here on our Calendar for dates)
Attendees who have completed the introductory courses several times eventually enter into the Tuesday weekly class on The Graduated Path to Enlightenment. This class follows the “thöe sam gom sum” approach (study, analyze, meditate) to the Lam Rim. Kushok completed the teachings on Pabongkha Rinpoche’s Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand in 2014.
