Special Buddhist Philosophy Class

This is the second year of the LTWA’s monthly five-day evening Buddhist philosophy class. The program is especially aimed at the CTA staff members and other Tibetans living in and around Gangchen Kyishong. However, anyone who is interested may attend the classes. The Director, Geshe Lhakdor, and two Geshes will teach in turn. Our focus will be not only on passive listening, but also on participation in lively discussion. See below for the tentative scheduled program for the classes. Actual class announcement will be made one week before each teaching.
