The Joy of the Middle Way
Teachings & Retreat on Chapter 9 of Shantideva's Guide
with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab at IKRC Grand Canyon
Over the NKT Day Weekend, April 1 - 5, IKRC Grand Canyon will be hosting a very special event.
The root of all our suffering is the ignorance of self-grasping, together with its imprints. To sever this root, it is necessary to develop the wisdom realizing ultimate truth, or emptiness, motivated by the supreme good heart of bodhichitta. In particular, we have to realize that the two truths – conventional truth and ultimate truth – do not contradict but mutually assist each other. By understanding the two truths we will realize the middle way that is free from the two extremes.
In this very special NKT Day weekend event, we have the rare opportunity to receive teachings and be guided in retreat by Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, retired NKT General Spiritual Director. Gen-la Khyenrab will explain the essential meaning of the ninth chapter of Shantideva's Guide following Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s commentary in Meaningful to Behold.

"I am so looking forward to receiving the nectar of these teachings on emptiness from Gen-la Khyenrab in the World Peace Temple surrounded by my Sangha friends. All of these conditions are so precious and rare, I'm definitely going because I don't know when I'll have an opportunity like this again!"
