The 2013 Jangchup Lamrim teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama successfully concluded on January 3 with His Holiness conferring the 1000-Armed Chenrezig initiation. His Eminence Ling Rinpoche is the main organizer of the Jangchup Lamrim teaching series.
“This year, His Holiness completed the commentary and oral transmission of several more of the 18 lam-rim texts, and he will continue teaching the remaining lam-rims in a location and on dates to be announced,” reported the Jangchup Lamrim website, which offers photos and videos of the teachings as well as news updates and quotations drawn from the 18 lam-rim commentaries that comprise the Jangchup Lamrim.
In order to make familiar to my own mind,
And to help benefit fortunate others as well,
I’ve explained here in words easy to understand
In its entirety the path that pleases the conquerors.
“Through this virtue may all beings be never divorced
From the perfectly pure excellent path” thus I pray;
I, a yogi, have made aspirations in this manner;
You, who aspire for liberation, too should pray likewise.
– From The Concise Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (also known as Song of the Stages of the Path) by Je Tsongkhapa. As translated in: Songs of Experience on the Stages of the Path by Je Tsongkhapa. Translated by Thubten Jinpa, PhD. PDF available from the Institute of Tibetan Classics.
