Gampopa's Jewel Ornament of Liberation
Registration closes on May 14.
Tibetans say, “The journey from the head to the heart is the longest.”
The Jewel Ornament of Liberation was composed by Gampopa, the main spiritual disciple of the hermit, Milarepa. In the genre know as the gradual path, Gampopa's manual is a classic that guides us step by step toward enlightment.
This Dharma study will include:
- The Bodhichitta of Aspiration
- The Bodhichitta of Commitment
- The Five Levels of the Bodhichitta Path
- The result: Perfect Buddhahood
Gampopa teaches, "A Buddha acts in a spontaneous way, without any preestablished plan. He or she doesn't think, 'Yesterday I helped this person, I think that's enough. Today I will help someone else.' A Buddha's body, speech, and mind all function in a nonconceptual, spontaneous way.
