Teaching cycle: Gates to Buddhist Practice

On March 8, Lama Tsering began a new cycle of teachings with reading and commentary on Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche’s Gates to Buddhist Practice.

The teachings will take place on Wednesdays at 7.30pm (UTC-3) and participation can be in person or online.

“This book, Gates to Buddhist Practice, is an important part of Rinpoche's legacy to people who are seeking an authentic spiritual path, to practitioners who are seeking enlightenment, and to those who have heard these teachings and want to remember his warm voice and precious wisdom. This fulfills Rinpoche's continuing aspiration that by connecting with the teachings and with him as a teacher, all may find inner peace, fearless compassion, and ultimate liberation.” (Chagdud Khadro in the Preface to the Brazilian edition of the book)
