In Depth Program 2023 MODULE 1 – LAMRIM CHENMO

26/04/2023 @ 9:30 am - 27/04/2023 @ 4:30 pm AEST

$120.00

THE GRADUATED PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT

ALL OUR MODULES IN 2023 (and possibly beyond) WILL FOCUS ON JE TSONGKHAPA’S MAJOR WORK – THE LAMRIM CHENMO

MODULE ONE – FOUR WEEKS – 26TH APRIL to 18TH MAY

 “The most unbelievably important thing in our life is Lamrim,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche 

As part of FPMT’s Basic Program, we study the subject ‘Stages of the Path’ and Geshe Tsultrim has chosen to do this through the study of Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo. This extensive text covers the entire path to enlightenment according to the Middle Way Consequence School, from guru devotion all the way to calm abiding and special insight (and an introduction to the paths of tantra).

You may now register for the first module (26th Apr – 18th May). We are planning four weeks at this stage but this may extend to five depending on the other events planned for the centre’s program.

Of course we were sad to lose our dear friend Ven Kartson but we have fortunately arranged excellent online translation by Ven Dorje from Atisha Centre, and Geshela will be joined by our old friend and excellent Basic Program student, Judy Bowey as teaching assistant.

After much discussion with Geshe Tsultrim, it has been decided to change the weekly schedule to the more relaxed two days per week, Wednesday and Thursday. We’ll attach the full schedule of the two days soon, days which will include meditation, teachings with Geshela, discussion, tutorials with Judy and a special Q&A session with Geshela on Thursday afternoons.

The intention is to provide an opportunity for the students to experience the material as it is presented, to work through it further with Judy and to then have an immediate opportunity to discuss any questions with Geshela. Review questions and other materials will be provided for students to continue to follow the material in meditation and study over the days in between. So that students are able to see what progress they are making, and in order to enable certification of this important Basic Program subject, simple tests on the material studied will be set at the end of each 4 or 5 week module. 

Here is the  Finalised schedule LRCM Mod 1.

About our Teacher:

Our resident Tibetan teacher, Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the teachings and inspires our community. He became a monk at Sera Je Monastery in India, where he was awarded his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. He began teaching at Chenrezig Institute in 2014 after being specifically chosen for our community by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Geshe Tsultrim has a warm-hearted, caring and practical approach to teaching Dharma. He has been the resident Geshe at Chenrezig Institute since 2014 and since then, he has taught Dharma both formally in the Gompa, and by the example he sets amongst the community.

Geshela’s teachings will be interpreted by Ven Dorje who is kindly working on zoom for us from Atisha Centre. 

Ven. Dorje grew up in South Africa. He ordained in 2003 and lived and studied at Nalanda Monastery in France and Instituto Lama Tzong Khapa in Italy, before moving to India in 2010. After studying Tibetan at Sera Monastery for three years, he graduated from the FPMT’s translator programme in Dharamsala in 2014. He has been translating at Atisha Centre in Bendigo since 2016. 

The text referred to will be

Lamrim Chenmo: The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, Volumes 123 by Je Tsongkhapa

Unfortunately we are not able to provide digital copies of this text but there are copies of these precious volumes in our library for students to borrow. Hard copies may be ordered through our bookshop and even digital copies are available through Amazon.com.

For those keen to prepare ahead, you can find a list of some of the many texts written on Lamrim here. Some of these books are available from our library and some are in our bookshop – others may be accessed in digital form.

It is wonderful to actually stay at the centre to study with other students and to engage in the other activities here, so we are offering a special deal to students wishing to come to the centre for these two days. Accommodation for Advanced Program students who have committed to follow at least one module in full will be offered at a special reduced rate for Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday nights. No meals will be available during those days so we are offering limited beds in a facility with cooking facilities. Of course, if you have a car you’ll also be able to use takeaway options in Eudlo and Mooloolah.

Beds will be limited so please contact info@chenrezig.com.au as early as possible to arrange this.
