Profound Teachings from Buddha’s Heart


Prajnaparamita Empowerment & Teachings on the Heart Sutra, Commentary to Blissful Path & The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong, NKT-IKBU General Spiritual Director & Gen-la Kelsang Jampa, NKT-IKBU Deputy Spiritual Director

(Portugal Festival 2013 Revisited)


In October 2013 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche gave his last public teachings in Portugal. During these teachings, Geshe-la granted the empowerment of Great Mother Prajnaparamita, taught the Essence of Wisdom Sutra (Heart Sutra), which contains the heart essence of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom teachings, and gave commentaries to The Blissful Path, the condensed self-generation sadhana practice of Buddha Vajrayogini and to The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability, the special instruction of how to reach the Pure Land of Vajrayogini with our present human body. During the teachings he also shared priceless heart advice and encouragement such as how to control our distractions so that our meditations will be effective.


During this Festival, these teachings will be revisited by Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong and Gen-la Kelsang Jampa.




By helping us to take these teachings deep into our hearts, we can attain deep experience of them, thus transforming our lives and drawing us closer to attaining full enlightenment so that we can benefit all living beings.
