The lamrim, the gradual path to enlightenment, is a textual tradition that presents the Buddhist teachings in a concise yet comprehensive manner.

Lamrim meditations are essential for actualizing the various teachings after we have heard and reflected on them. Venerable George Churinoff, a precious Dharma scholar and practitioner, guides us through this profound sequence of meditations so we can gain a full understanding of the Buddha's teachings, nourish our minds, and create the causes for contentment.

 

This is an excellent opportunity for new students to understand the structure of the entire Buddhist path and for more experienced students to deepen their understanding and practice.
