Geshe Sonam will give the following transmissions: Chanting the Names of Manjushri and the Three Principal Aspects of the Path
The Three Principal Aspects of the Path is a short pith text by Lama Tsongkhapa explaining three minds of definite emergence (renunciation), bodhicitta, and correct view of emptiness that form the very foundation of our spiritual practice. Geshe la will give a transmission and short commentary on this text as part of Sunday’s activities, and perhaps continue his explanation over a second Sunday session.
“Chanting the Names of Noble Mañjuśrī” (Ārya-mañjuśrī-nāma-saṅgīti) is a powerful text rooted in the tantras that has been recommended by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to create the causes for the swift return (new incarnation) of our dear teacher and late FPMT co-founder Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche who manifested passing away last April.
The beautiful text is included within a mahāyoga tantra known as the “Net of Illusion” spoken by Buddha Śākyamuni. Geshe Sonam will give the lung (oral transmission) of the Ārya-mañjuśrī-nāma-saṅgīti during his last teaching before a brief holiday break, as way for students to create a deeper connection with this text that we will recite as a community for Rinpoche’s swift return

Our programs are given freely, and we also rely on your generosity – this is the traditional and pure way of the Buddha Dharma. Offering support for the Dharma can be a limitlessly powerful act. This is the highest, most long-term form of generosity, which is to share with others the path to full awakening. When we support the Dharma we create causes for us to encounter the Dharma frequently, and we create the merit to be able to integrate the teachings in our minds easily. Offering support deepens our connection to Dharma teachers and connects us as a community.
