Fall Festival 2019
The magic continues
"Kadam Dharma is like a mala made of gold"
When Gen-la Khyenrab began to teach the second part of the Festival this morning we again felt the immediacy and intimacy of the transmission, as if Venerable Geshe-la himself were delivering it in person. The magic continues!
Over the next few sessions Gen-la is transmitting the blessings of the section on The Three Principal Aspects of the Path from The Mirror of Dharma.
He began by strongly encouraging us to rely sincerely on Je Tsongkhapa, reminding us that the power of his blessings and skilful methods to lead practitioners to the state of enlightenment is unequalled among those of all other Buddhas.
In today's sessions, Gen-la taught the sections on renunciation and bodhichitta and once again we delighted in unsurpassed teachings of extraordinary clarity and profundity.
As with Gen-la Dekyong, Gen-la Khyenrab shared special teachings that they had received directly from Venerable Geshe-la himself. The book is called The Mirror of Dharma with Additions, but what we are receiving is additions to the additions. So special!
The Festival site is like a small town - a Dharma town - where everything is run by kind-hearted volunteers. The powerful blessings of the teachings pervade everywhere. So much laughter, so much joy - so much peace!
