We are glad to welcome Khenpo Migmar Tseten, who will teach on PRAJNAPARAMITA  and TANTRA.

Lama Migmar will kindly discuss how the Heart Sutra is complementary to the four foundations of mindfulness meditation and how it is also indispensable in establishing the perfect view of emptiness to practice the creation and completion stages of Deity Yoga in Tantric sadhana practices.     Lama Migmar teaches in clear, fluent English with an empathy and understanding of the needs of students, and he is patient with all questions.

The teaching is on Monday, October 29, 2018 at 7:00 pm at Ewam Choden.     OPEN to EVERYONE.  Requested donation of $20.  (Offering to the lama is separate.)
