AUGUST 5 THE FOUR DHARMAS OF GAMPOPA
In four lines Gampopa succeeded in summarizing the Buddhadharma in terms of ground, path and fruition. This is a basic teaching about traveling the Tibetan Buddhist path. First our mind must have interest in the teachings of the Buddha and come to the path. Next is progressive movement on the path. That causes one’s mental confusion to clarify. Finally, that clarity results in enlightenment, the completion of the path. Click here to read about the Four Dharmas of Gampopa by Thrangu Rinpoche.
Lama Yeshe, resident lama at the Hay River KTC Buddist Meditaiton Center, gave this teaching. For more information about the center and it’s activities view ktcHayRiver.org.
