Lama Jampa is the pre-eminent Buddhist meditation master and scholar in the dissemination of Tibetan culture and religion in the West. His topics cover a wide scope of Buddhism, contemporary ethical issues, and modern spirituality. Lama Jampa will illuminate the essence of the Buddhist path, succinctly and accessibly. He shall explain the essential teachings of Buddhism in a clear, direct way ~ starting with ‘Taking Refuge’ in the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, and the Four Contemplations that create a grounding for the Buddhist path to freedom from our current state of suffering. Through this profound, step-by-step introduction to the Meditations of the Mahayana, we may develop loving-kindness and compassion, motivated by Bodhicitta – the altruistic resolve to obtain enlightenment for the benefit of beings. He will conclude with an insightful explanation of the purpose and method of entry to the Vajrayana, the Tantric teachings of the Buddha, by which it is possible to attain the state of a Buddha in this very lifetime. The teachings are from Lama Jampa’s new book Diamond Sky (2023) for those wishing to obtain an overview or deepen their understanding of the path to enlightenment.
