The Three Principal Aspects of the Path
with Thubten Pende
Second Sunday of the month
11:00am – 12:30pm
Last Class: June 13
Lama Tsongkhapa’s special guru, Manjushri, provided this instruction to him. It is the quintessence of all advice on what we need to focus on in our practice to realize our optimum potential, buddhahood.
Pende will discuss at length the three principal aspects: renunciation, the spirit of enlightenment (bodhicitta), and the correct view.
Here is a link to the Internet Archive posting of the three teachings offered so far if you would like to listen again or catch up for the last class.
Tubten Pende is a practicing Buddhist since 1972 when he was introduced to Tibetan Buddhism in India. Pende was included in the first wave of the FPMT’s Western Buddhist teachers. He was the coordinator of the Geshe Studies Program at Manjushri Institute, England; spiritual program coordinator, director, and later resident teacher at Nalanda Monastery, France; and an FPMT International Office Education Services program developer of the Masters Program at Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa, Italy. He is interested in the effective application of Buddhist theory and practice in the daily life of ordinary people.
