An introductory course that provides an overview of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and practice for beginners and those already familiar with Buddhist teachings, who seek a more structured approach to understanding the path to enlightenment. This four-part series will be based on Lama Tsongkhapa’s essential lamrim text The Foundation of All Good Qualities, and Khunu Lama Rinpoche’s brief commentary on it.
