During our Saturday workshop we will use Lama Yeshe’s marvelous commentary on a short Chenrezig guru yoga sadhana written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he was 19 called The Inseparability of the Lama and Chenrezig. Lama talks about the practice in the context of understanding tantra and how to “make ordinary actions divine” and how to open our hearts with devotion by seeing our spiritual teacher as one and the same as the Buddha.
Schedule: Morning Session 10:00 A.M. – 11:30 A.M. Afternoon Session 1:30 to 3:00 P.M.
