Starting in January 2023, we plan to watch and discuss a series of lecture recordings previously presented live by Geshe Thubten Sherab.
Sundays with Geshe-la – Training on the Bodhisattva Path was sponsored by Thubten Norbu Ling in New Mexico, the centre where he is resident teacher. Geshe-la has most kindly agreed to answer any questions we might come up with during our discussions of these recordings through our Study Group Coordinator.

Mind Training on the Bodhisattva path
Text: The Bodhisattva’s Garland of Jewels by Atisha Dimpamkara
Geshe Sherab shares each verse of this wonderful teaching of Atisha’s with a depth of understanding of the text and also of human nature. The Garland of Jewels is what we strive to achieve as bodhisattvas but also recognizes where we actually are. Geshe-la reminds us of this and offers many tips on how to use the verses to strengthen our practice and embrace the joy of the path.

One of our members commented: 
This set of teachings is down to earth and remains relevant to our lives today. Geshe Sherab’s ability for great story telling and his gentle sense of humour brings life to the topic. Anyone can participate and no previous experience is needed.

“Be done with doubt and indecision and embrace your practice with all your heart. Shake off lethargy, dullness and laziness. And strive always with enthusiasm and joy”, Atisha Dimpamkara
