“Free from assertions regarding philosophical views,
Free from mental fabrication in meditation,
Free from accepting and rejecting regarding conduct,
Free from hope and fear concerning the result:
These four, which established the practices and characteristics
of the Three Doors of Liberation, are the ultimate topics
of the four philosophical systems.”

We say this on Sundays during Chenrezi, but what does it really mean?

Join Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche to explore this topic, which establishes the practices and characteristics of the Three Doors of Liberation*, the ultimate topics of the four philosophical systems.

* The Three Doors of Liberation will be covered in a separate class on March 11.
