About the Half Day Course

The Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning. All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer. I can say very few people understand the Liberating Prayer. It definitely needs verbal commentary by a Teacher. If we understand and contemplate its meaning – it is the best method to develop faith in Buddha and his teachings, which is our spiritual life and the root of all Dharma realizations.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Everybody loves to hear the Liberating Prayer when they come to classes, but what does this prayer mean? On this course Kelsang Luma will share a special transmission and blessing of the meaning of this prayer. This will include commentary Venerable Geshe-la has given on the meaning of different verses of this prayer over many years.

Suitable for beginners and advanced. Everybody is welcome
