Geshe Gelek offers a commentary on Lama Tsongkhapa’s poem The Essence of A Human Life: words of advice for the lay practitioner. He will focus on how ordinary people can find the deepest meaning in our lives, taking the essence of each day of our precious human lives. This class is a good way to prepare for Rinpoche’s summer teachings on Shantideva.
