August 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm PDT
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 7, 2018
The International Buddhist Academy (IBA) in Kathmandu is running a global training program that encompasses the Buddhist path in its entirety. This unique course has been devised for Dharma practitioners of all levels of experience and is focused mainly on the theory and practice of the Vajrayana path as transmitted by the founding masters of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism.
His Holiness Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, the 42nd Sakya Trizin, is teaching this full 7-year program at the International Buddhist Academy in Kathmandu. In addition, IBA has established partnerships with selected Dharma centers on different continents to offer the first three years of this program, taught by qualified Lamas and guest teachers.
To help facilitate this precious opportunity for Buddhists in the United States, H.E. Avikrita Rinpoche, Head Lama of Sakya Monastery, and H.E. Dagyum Kusho, the Acting Head Lama, have chosen to host the second year (2018) of The Complete Path at Sakya Monastery.
Ven. Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche, assisted by translator Geshe Jamyang Tsultrim, will teach the weeklong intensive course at Sakya Monastery (Seattle, WA) from August 1-7, 2018.
This is the second year of the course. Participation from the second year (2018) onward requires completion of the previous levels. At the end of each year’s course, participants will receive a certification attesting their qualification to continue the program. For more information about the 7-year program, please visit thecompletepath.com.
