The Words of My Perfect Teacher: Part 2

The second part of Patrul Rinpoche’s classic “The Words of My Perfect Teacher” covers Vajrasattva
practice (for clearing the negative karma that obscures our naturally enlightened nature), offering practices
(for accumulating the merit we need to reach enlightenment) and the power of devotion to accelerate and
accomplish our path (Guru Yoga).

The Buddhist Path to Enlightenment: Gampopa’s “Jewel Ornament of Liberation”

This course takes us from the earliest steps on the path, covering the positive Buddhist view of human nature
as inherently perfect, through the steps we must follow to realise this fully within our own minds. It is based
on an accessible modern commentary on Gampopa’s classic “The Jewel Ornament of Liberation”. The course
will also cover how to meditate/practise, as regular personal practice is essential to any serious engagement
with Buddhism.
