LIVE TEACHINGS WITH GESHE TASHI

TEACHINGS FROM THE BOOK OF KADAM

DESCRIPTION:  Khen Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering, abbot of Sera Mey monastery, will be giving a series of three classes on a reading from The Book of Kadam, also known as The Miraculous Book of Kadam, attributed to Lama Atisha and Geshe Dromtunpa.  He will be commenting on Chapter 15 of The Jewel Garland of DialoguesHow to Train the Mind within the Expanse of Appearance, Emptiness and Empty Echoes.

Geshe Tashi’s trademark style is part scholarly – he brings an exceptional depth of knowledge, experience and wisdom to the material; and a large part down to earth – how we can best apply these teachings to our everyday lives. These Sunday teachings are always extraordinary, and we hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

DATES:  Sundays on the 6th, 13th and 20th of November. To register for each class, please scroll down to the red button below.

TIME:  2.30pm to 4pm UK time, 8pm India. Please double check your local time zones here.

LOCATION:  These teachings will be available to join as a Zoom meeting and also live on Facebook.  The recordings of these classes will be available on our blog, on our FBT YouTube channel, and immediately afterwards on our Facebook channel.

REGISTRATION & DONATIONS:  You will need to enter some amount to register for each class.  This can be £0.00.  PayPal processes the donations, but you do not need a PayPal account to register. Recently, however, Pay Pal has changed its policy, which means you do now need to give them your details in order to make a donation. We are looking for alternatives to this, but for now, this is just the way it is.
 A few people have struggled with the registration process, and we’ve made a visual guide which we hope will help.  You can see it by clicking here.

    • All donations go through the FBT’s bank account, set up as a Community Interest Company.
