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.

Geshe Gelek began teaching on this extensive text, which covers three volumes, several years ago, and our course progressed into the second volume. After a break in 2015, Geshe-la turned to teaching Lama Tsongkhapa's more condensed lamrim texts (Song of Experience, The Foundation of All Good Qualities, and The Three Principal Aspects of the Path).  We now return to the full Lamrim Chenmo.

These incredible teachings by Geshe Gelek on this text are a rare and precious opportunity.

Students who missed the earlier teachings can find them in the recordings section of our website.
