We were fortunate to welcome Khenpo Chöchok to Marfond for a second time and to receive teachings from him once again.
The course lasted for one week and we began with a broad, yet detailed look into the workings of karma. For the larger part of the rest of the week we began to study Maitreya’s Uttara Tantra Shastra. This treatise is a key text within the Kagyu tradition, according to which it provides an authoritative explanation of the Buddha’s final and definitive teachings on buddha nature.
The open atmosphere at the course with Khenpo Chöchok’s highly accessible teaching style lead to many in depth exchanges around the topics at hand, with many finer points of inquiry being resolved.
We look forward to receiving the Khenpo once again in the future to continue our study of this important text.
