Intensive Retreat on the Buddhist View

Geshe Dorji Damdul

Deer Park Institute is very fortunate to host teachings by Geshe Dorji Damdul on the core foundation of the Buddhist path-the View. Geshe la’s  approach draws from the vast Nalanda tradition, in which he was trained in, along with an abundance of lore of past masters, their lives and experiences treading the path of the Buddha.

    In the introduction of this course Geshe la said, "Understanding the Two Truths on the basis of how they are interpreted by the Four Buddhist Schools of thought with subtle nuances is imperative, challenging though, to understand what truly constitute Enlightenment and the possibility of achieving it.We are going to undertake this journey during the short course in Deer Park Institute, Bir."
