LAM RIM: STAGES ON THE PATH - PART TWO

DEMO RINPOCHE

In the Lam Rim, or Stages on the Path to Enlightenment, Buddha’s teachings are presented step-by-step to allow for gradual experiential awareness and understanding of our inner and outer world. Through this process, we can transform the challenges and confusion encountered in ordinary everyday life to the extraordinary compassion and wisdom of enlightenment.

Demo Rinpoche will teach Monday evenings from 7:00pm to 8:30pm based on Je Tsongkhapa’s Medium Lam Rim. These extensive teachings on the stages of the path to enlightenment will be ongoing.

Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was a great fourteenth-century scholar and teacher who foun­ded the Gelug traditi­on. His many treatises finalized the work begun by Atisha, bringing together the vast body of Indian scriptures and schools of practice into a unified exposition of the sutrayana and tantrayana paths. He wrote sever­al lam rims. The most well-known is The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path of Enlightenment (Lam rim chen mo). There is also a medium-length lamrim text by Tsongkhapa (200 pages) and a short one, called Lam-rim Dü-dön (Tib.), which is recited daily by many Gelugpas and is about ten pages long.

Demo Rinpoche went to Drepung Loseling Monastery in Mundgod at the age of five and officially joined the monastery in 1987, where he spent nearly thirty years of uninterrupted education in meditation, debate, memorization, philosophy, and composition under the Dalai Lama’s direct supervision. After completing his studies at Drepung, Rinpoche received the highest monastic degree of Geshe Lharampa from Gelugpa University in India in 2011. He continued his studies at Gyume Tantric College and was a visiting scholar under the auspices of the Dalai Lama at Sera College of Higher Tibetan Studies in Dharamsala. At the request of Gelek Rimpoche, Demo Rinpoche came to the United States where he received his Master’s Degree in Inter-Religious Engagement from Union Theological Seminary in New York City in 2018. Currently based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, he serves as the Resident Spiritual Advisor at Jewel Heart.
