Lama Yeshe says 'This is a small text, but it contains the essence of the entire teaching of Lord Buddha. Also, while it is very simple and practical, it is a universal teaching that everybody can understand.' Buddha gave 84,000 teachings, and the enormity of them can be overwhelming!

These few short verses, the Three Principle Aspects of the Path, composed by Lama Tsong Khapa, are a beautiful and succinct guide to achieving happiness, drawing directly on the Buddha's teachings. Distilling the vast principles of renunciation, correct view and Bodhicitta the verses present an essential approach to help us to view reality, self and others in a truly honest way. Lama Yeshe describes the first principle renunciation as a total inner experience.

'Renunciation means less craving; it means being more reasonable instead of putting too much psychological pressure on yourself and acting crazy'.

The second principle, correct view, focuses on cultivating the wisdom which understands reality, like the sun illuminating inner confusion and darkness. The third principle, Bodhicitta, is the spirit of compassion and the desire to increase the happiness and welfare of others. Shantideva says, 'Whatever joy there is in this world, all comes from desiring others to be happy'.

Join us for this mind-opening weekend and discover for yourself the essence of Buddha's teaching in the Three Principles of the Path.
