In these 57 weekly Sunday morning teachings from January 2012 to February 2013, Gelek Rimpoche introduces Buddha’s transformative message through the goals and methods of Tibetan Buddhism, helping us to see, session by session, the personal applicability of Buddha’s life-changing realizations for our lives today.
