Venerable Thubten Chodron
In this weekly series, Ven. Thubten Chodron gives reading and commentary on Following in the Buddha’s Footsteps, Volume 4 in the multi-volume book series of The Library of Wisdom and Compassion by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Ven. Chodron.

It’s an extrarodinary opportunity to hear teachings on the key elements of the Buddha’s path directly from the book’s editor and co-author.

Following in the Buddha’s Footsteps delves into the substance of spiritual practice, beginning with His Holiness’s explanation of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, why they are reliable guides on the path, and how to relate to them. He then goes on to describe the three essential trainings common to all Buddhist traditions: the higher trainings in ethical conduct, concentration, and wisdom, each of which is elucidated in detail.

Talks will be streamed on YouTube and archived weekly.

“This authoritative volume serves as a rich source of information on two major themes—the bases of Buddhist faith and the framework of Buddhist training—each viewed from the two complementary perspectives of the Pali tradition and the Indo-Tibetan tradition.”

— Bhikkhu Bodhi, scholar-monk and translator of Pali texts
