WHAT IS THE LAM RIM ? "...the essence of the 84,000 teachings of the Buddha, organized into a clear, step like arrangement that makes it easy for any individual practitioner to understand and practice the Buddha dharma and forms an essential part of every school of Tibetan Buddhism.

Buddha dharma means bringing discipline and inner tranquillity into our mind. Therefore, when we talk about transforming our mind and developing inner qualities, the only way we can do this is to utilize the mind itself. There is nothing else we can use to bring about such change...'

quote: HH Dalai Lama - Illuminating the Path to Enlightenment (this text is available via CTCT Bookshop, accessible during all teaching events and monthly meetings.)

All topics  presented essentially incorporate topics of the LAM-RIM - the graduated path to enlightenment
