Wednesday evening at 7:00pm (note new time) we gather to
study teachings and meditations of interest to Buddhist practictioners.
New participants are welcome at any time.
On August 19 we started reading and discussing Showing the Path of Liberation
by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche.
We are also watching a DVD of Rinpoche giving this teaching at KTD in
the fall of 2011. From Namse Bangdzo: "This teaching was given by
Rinpoche at the request of His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa
especially for the benefit of western students, so that they may
understand the nature of the path. Here Rinpoche gives a verse by verse
commentary, which covers all aspects of the path and the practice
according to the tradition of Mahamudra. He also gives a brief history
of the lineage and early lineage masters." Copies
will be available at the Center.
The Piedmont KTC (Karma Thegsum Choling)
is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation group belonging to the Karma Kagyu
lineage. We are affiliated with the Karma Triyana
