Taking the Essence: Practicing the Five Forces in Daily Life

About Event:

Our own well-loved interpreter, tutor and teacher is offering a series of teachings on

Taking the Essence: Practicing the Five Forces in Daily Life

The five powers are a powerful framework for systematizing our Dharma practice, helping us to integrate each and every day into a consistent practice for the rest of our life. It consists of shaping our daily motivation as we start our day, harnessing the power of virtue as we go about our day and culminating with an evaluation of our daily practice at the end of the day. If we do it right and develop positive habits throughout our life, as we approach death we will have a better chance of using a set of five power to ensure a good rebirth after death.


This event is being hosted on Zoom by our FPMT friends at Thubten Norbu Ling Dharma centre in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Teachings will be on Monday mornings throughout August: 8 August, 15 August, 22 August and 29 August live on Zoom at 11.00am – 12.30pm AEST
