Join us on Wednesday, 11th October 2023 for an auspicious reading of the Madhyamaka Root Text and create the causes to realise emptiness and achieve ultimate wisdom.
Madhyamaka is a philosophical system first articulated by the 2nd century Indian Buddhist master Nagarjuna, and later by other masters such as Chandrakirti, Shantideva, Aryadeva and Longchenpa.
Known as Uma in Tibetan, Madhyamaka thought is founded on the doctrine of emptiness or Shunyata, that all phenomena are empty of inherent nature.
In the 15th century, Lama Tsongkhapa distilled the essence of Nagarjuna’s philosophy and founded a unique lineage through which many rapidly gained special insight. His teachings on Nagarjuna’s view of emptiness were so significant that Dorje Shugden arose as a Dharma Protector principally to assist and safeguard this uncommon lineage.
The puja will be conducted by visiting Sangha from Shar Gaden, Serpom, Phelgyeling and Segyu monasteries, alongside high lamas and esteemed geshes.
