Teacher Training Program
with Kadam Peter Kurczynski
The Teacher Training Program will be studying: Clear Light Of Bliss by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Within all of us lies a source of infinite bliss, clarity of wisdom, and compassion for others. In this unique and highly praised book, based on Buddha’s Tantric teachings, the contemporary Buddhist Master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, presents authentic methods for discovering this inner wealth for ourselves. In a clear and precise way, he explains step-by-step how we can generate a deeply peaceful and concentrated mind by harnessing the subtle energy system within our body. With this blissful awareness we can uncover our true nature, destroy ignorance and suffering at its root, and swiftly become a source of inspiration and benefit for others. Clear Light of Bliss is a manual for Tantric meditation that reveals the most profound secrets of the ancient Yogis and makes their blissful experience accessible to the modern world.
The Teacher Training Program (TTP) provides a systematic presentation of all the subjects of Mahayana Buddhism and form a perfect basis for a strong daily practice and successful meditation retreats.
TTP involves two teaching and discussion classes each week. Classes take place on
Sundays 8:30 – 1 pm. Please contact the resident teacher, Kadam Peter Kurczynski for more information and to discuss the possibility of joining this class.
The Teacher Training Program is designed for people who wish to train as authentic
Dharma Teachers. However, not everyone on the TTP wishes to train as a teacher – many simply wish for the opportunity to study and practice Buddhism in the most thorough and systematic way. Teaching dharma is not a commitment of the TTP.
According to Venerable Geshe-la, the most important qualifications for joining the TTP
are pure motivation, correct view, and faith.
