jhampa 2012TVDF Presents Lama Jhampa Shaneman
Twelve Links of Dependent Arising
and Vajrayana Guidance – April 3-12

The Twelve Links of Dependent Arising helps explain how events come into being at the most subtle and profound levels. How is it that our consciousness flows from one moment into the next, then one life to the next, and where does the wisdom of being self aware play a role? These questions and others are explained through the Twelve Links of Dependent Arising, one of the Buddha’s most famous teachings.

    Hi Dan. If we want to attend the Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, is it best to attend all sessions or is each session the same? Thank you. Tamra
