The Path to Enlightenment from A-Z

Like with any body of knowledge we want to learn, we need the big picture; we need to see how all the concepts are integrated, how each stage leads naturally to the next. The Tibetan packaging of the teachings known as the lamrim, the gradual path, put together by Lama Tzong Khapa, the 14th century lineage lama of the Gelug tradition, does exactly that. He took all the essential points from the vast body of Buddhist knowledge and presented them in an orderly way — orderly according to the disciple’s capacity for internalizing the teachings. It all culminates in the achievement of buddhahood, the natural potential of every one of us.

General information about the spiritual programme

The span of our spiritual programme is approximately six months – the last few months of one year and the early months of the next – during the cooler season in Bodhgaya.

On the appropriate dates in the Tibetan calendar year-round, however, we observe the standard pujas of the Gelug tradition and these are drop-in sessions which anyone can attend. If you are in Bodhgaya and would like to come along, please feel welcome to join us for:

  • Tara Puja
  • Medicine Buddha Puja
  • Guru Puja with Tsog
  • Protector Puja.

Unless otherwise indicated, registration is required for all events except:
