Event description
The Jewel Ornament of Liberation was written by Gampopa (1074-1153 C.E.). He shares how all beings have the same essence of Buddha Nature.

About this Event

Gampopa named this contradiction: we both dwell in an amazing human existence with enlightened essence, while also wandering through the worlds of struggle and suffering.

What is the path through this paradox, then? In this course, we will study realities of samsara and nirvana, based on Gampopa’s Jewel Ornament of Liberation.

We also learn that to be more than who we currently are, we need to understand more than we currently do. How do we understand cause and effect? What is the role of loving kindness and compassion?

This course is made up of 4 classes which will take place live on Monday evenings 7:30-9pm MST. (May 17th, 24th, 31st and June 7th) 

Recordings will also be available if you can’t attend live.

Notes about these sessions:

  • We offer this course on the basis of dāna, as well as an admin fee of $100 USD. The admin fee helps cover the costs of running these online courses. 

  • For the teachings themselves – Dāna is a Sanskrit term meaning “generosity”. With dāna, we give as a mutual exchange of generosity. You may have come across this in the form of “pay from the heart”. It’s our joy to offer this course, and we trust you’ll match our time, energy, and passion by giving an amount of money that feels good and healthy to both you and us. We suggest a range between $120 and $500 for this four-week course. For more information on dāna click here.

  •  When you register you will receive a confirmation email with details instructing you how to access the course. 

  • We recommend you attend the classes live to benefit from joining with others, having the opportunity to ask questions, and interacting in breakout rooms.  Recordings are available for one week after the class if you are unable to attend.

  • Homework for anyone attending teachings: opportunities for weekly practice or reflection are given at the end of each class. Experiences can be shared on our private Planet Dharma Facebook Group. Instructions to access the group will be in your confirmation email.
