Nirvana and the Wheel of Life
By Venerable Geshe Tenzin Namdak
Through understanding the wheel of life, one comes to know how the ignorance of grasping at an inherent world gives rise to afflictions, producing the twelve links of suffering samsara. And by correctly analyzing ultimate reality, one generates the wisdom which eliminates this ignorance and leads one to the blissful state of nirvana. During this weekend Geshe Namdak will share his deep knowledge in a practical way with teachings, guided meditations and Q&A, offering a chance to develop a deeper understanding of the twelve links of dependent origination and nirvana based on Arya Nagarjuna’s Fundamental Wisdom.
