Geshe Yeshi Lhundup teaches

Illumination of the Thought, Je Tsongkhapa’s commentary on

Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way

Course will be offered over Zoom Webinar and Vimeo Livestream

We’re happy to welcome Geshe Yeshi Lhundup to continue his teaching on Je Tsongkhapa’s Illumination of the Thought, Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way.

Geshe la offers a rare opportunity for students of Buddhist philosophy and lovers of the teachings on the Middle Way. This teaching is suitable for students who have a grounding in the stages of the path and Buddhist philosophy. It is not for beginners.

Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way is prized in Tibetan Buddhism as a supreme explanation of the Middle Way philosophy, considered the highest—that is, the most subtle—understanding of Buddha’s teachings. Written in the 7th Century, it is an introduction to the Middle Way teachings of Nagarjuna, who illuminated the Prajnaparamita Sutras and promoted the Buddha’s teachings on the bodhisattva path to Buddhahood. Je Tsongkhapa’s commentary is prized in the Gelugpa tradition for its brilliant clarification of key points in the Prasangika view.
