The Nalanda Program, the Guhya Mantrika Community Higher Buddhist Studies Program, approaches from a practitioner’s perspective the study of traditional texts of the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, aimed at serious practitioners of this spiritual tradition.
Exceptionally, on Sundays, the Nalanda Program opens its doors during this school year to outsider students given the importance of the text to be studied this school year, “The Kunzang Lama’i Shelung”, for any Buddhist practitioner and especially for all those who aspire to a genuine practice that will guide us to effective spiritual realization.
For over a century, “The Words of My Perfect Master” has served as a guide to the spiritual practice common to all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
It is a classic commentary on the preliminary practices of the cycle of Dzogchen Longchen Nyingthig, one of the great spiritual treasures of the Nyingma school.
The author, Paltrul Rinpoche, makes the subject accessible through a wealth of stories, quotations, and references to everyday life. His poetic sense, irony and colloquial style infuse the text with the atmosphere and vitality of oral and direct teaching.
This is an opportunity to study this wonderful text, benefiting from the possibility to have weekly sessions and a personal and direct relationship of spiritual guidance with Lama Gyurme, the resident teacher of Guhya Mantrika Community.
