How We Create Our Own Reality – Home Study Online Retreat 

With Geshe Namdak: 16th – 21st May 2020

Through understanding conventional reality, we can come to know how the ignorance of grasping at an inherent world gives rise to destructive emotions, therefore producing the twelve links of suffering in samsara. By correctly analysing the ultimate reality, we can generate the wisdom which eliminates this ignorance and therefore leads us to the bliss of nirvana and enlightenment.

During this course Geshe Namdak shares his deep knowledge in a practical way through supportive teaching, meditation and Q&A sessions, offering us a chance to develop a deeper understanding of the twelve links of dependent origination and how they effect our lives. The recordings of the course are complimented by additional resources Geshe La kindly provided before the course began, including audio recordings of his previous ‘Karma and the Wheel of Life’ course.

About Geshe Namdak

Geshe Namdak Online Retreat Resources

Venerable Geshe Tenzin Namdak first worked as an environmental researcher after graduating in hydrology. He then started studying Buddhism at Maitreya Institute in The Netherlands in 1993 and took ordination from His Holiness the Dalai Lama before engaging in his formal studies in Buddhist philosophy and psychology at Sera Jey Monastic University, South India, in 1997.

He completed the entire twenty-year Geshe program at Sera Jey in 2017 followed by the traditional one-year Vajrayana study programme at Gyume Tantric College in January 2019, the first Westerner to do so.

He has received a great number of teachings from His Holiness Dalai Lama and many other highly respected teachers and lineage masters, has done many retreats and is an experienced teacher in practical and philosophical aspects of Buddhism that he teaches with great clarity and a good sense of humour.

Study Resources

Geshe Namdak’s ‘Karma and the Wheel of Life’ audio recordings and ‘Twelve Links of Interdependent Origination’ video have been generously offered by him as pre-course reading/watching to help set the context and increase the benefit gained from his teachings on how we create our own reality.

As well as the audio and video recordings, Geshe La has also provided some additional reading material including an overview of the twelve links of dependent origination and two chapters of Nagarjuna’s Fundamental Wisdom on the twelve links of dependent origination and emptiness. These can be found below the other audio and video files.

Geshela reminds us of how HH Dalai Lama often teaches these topics in India and so believes they are important chapters for students to become familiar with.
