Teaching by Acharya Lhakpa Tshering
Losar is fast approaching. Rinpoche has taught that it is important to pause and reflect on where we are on the path at the start of each new year and to make aspirations for the coming year.
How has our practice changed over the past twelve months? What insights have we gained from our study, contemplation and meditation? How are these insights reflected in our daily life?
Acharya Lhakpa will lead a discussion and reflection based on Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche’s Six Cornerstones teachings. The session will include guided meditation and reflective exercises.
This pre-Losar teaching and discussion is restricted to Nalandabodhi Sangha members only.
