In today’s uncertain world where fear and anxiety are so prevalent, there are profound meditation teachings which offer everyone a way to take difficulties of life onto their path of spiritual development.

One such teaching by the third Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Jikmé Tenpé Nyima, a renowned Tibetan meditation master of the mid-1800s, provides essential instruction on incorporating the difficulties of life and challenges in spiritual practice into the path to enlightenment. This classic text, Turning Suffering and Happiness into Enlightenment, brings together the most essential instructions in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition on training our mind in wisdom and compassion.

Sogyal Rinpoche, one of the most renowned teachers of Tibetan Buddhism in the West, brought this text alive during his cycle of teachings in the Spring of 2003. This series of study sessions uses video excerpts of these incredible teachings, and offers an essentialized and clear teaching of this practical text on how to transform the difficult circumstances of today’s turbulent world into an ally on the spiritual path, and how this can lead us to true inner peace and lasting happiness. These sessions will also present meditation guidance and instruction as well as question and answer discussion periods to go deeper into the root text and commentary. Course Prerequisite - the Foundation courses.
