Developing the Altruistic Attitude: Lamrim Teachings in the Guru Puja
The lamrim prayer in the Guru Puja contains all the profound, vital points of the complete path of sutra and tantra. -- Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Geshe Gelek's teaching on the Guru Puja now covers the lamrim verses, covering all the major points of the path to enlightenment.
Lama Atisha organized all of the Buddha's teachings into a step-by-step guide how to become enlightened in a short text called "Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment." Lama Tsongkhapa (the founder of our Gelugpa lineage) wrote a detailed explanation of Lama Atisha's text to help students understand and practice the instructions called The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim Chenmo). This lamrim foundation is the basis of all practice in our lineage, including tantra.
Students who were studying Lamrim with Geshe-la before the Guru Puja class began may wish to join this class for the lamrim section.
