- Begin with special prayers to Arya Tara, our Great Mother and Swift Rescuer, on this Tara Day.
- Enjoy a meaningful and peaceful retreat day, continuing with guided meditations on Lamrim, the Intermediate Scope of the stages of the path to enlightenment.
- Then, with this experience, you can complete the 21 meditations in subsequent monthly retreats, or on your own, at home.
When you have completed the 21, you have met the challenge, and can continue your practice with the entire cycle, or focusing on particular objects of meditation.
These teachings and meditations are drawn frorm The New Meditation Handbook by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, which is available in our bookstore.

What is Lamrim? “A Tibetan term, leterally meaning “stages of the path”, a special arrangement of all Buddha’s teachings that is easy to understand and put into practice. It reveals all the stages of the path to enlightenment.” It forms the backbone of our Kadampa practice, coming from Buddha Maitreya, refined by Atisha (the first Kadampa) and then by Je Tsongkhapa as the New Kadampa Tradition, which we practice today.
