400 Stanzas with Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe

October 13 @ 3:00 pm - October 22 @ 2:00 pm PDT

Aryadeva’s 400 Stanzas on the Middle Way

We are overjoyed to welcome eminent Tibetan scholar Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe to continue teaching Aryadeva’s Four Hundred Stanzas on the Middle Way with Joshua Cutler as his English interpreter. Join us!

Aryadeva’s text is a foundational work of Buddhist philosophy. Geshe Thabkhe has been guiding us through Aryadeva’s profound text over several teachings and several years. This teaching will begin with Chapter 13 as he covers the final 100 verses on the Middle Way view.

Geshe Thabkhe is a celebrated scholar and teacher. Born in 1930, he became a monk at 13, trained at Drepung Loseling Monastery in Tibet, and completed his Geshe Lharampa degree in India after escaping the Communist occupation. Geshela is an emeritus professor at the Central University of Tibetan Studies in Sarnath, India.

Full-schedule retreatants should arrive by 3:00 p.m. on Friday and stay through the afternoon teaching the following Sunday. Commuters are also welcomed. Partial attendance is possible, but we strongly recommend you come for the whole course.
