“Words of My Perfect Teacher” Book Club & Study Group

January 27 - July 21, 2015
Padmasambhava Meditation Center

Patrul Rinpoche’s Words of My Perfect Teacher— the text that has, for more than a century, served as the reliable sourcebook to the spiritual practices common to all the major schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Recommended by our beloved Chhoje Rinpoche and HH Dalai Lama, this book is what they call a potential “game changer of life”. If you take it seriously and read it carefully, then it is one that can change your life. This study group will provide a forum to discuss the book in depth to reach a deeper understanding of the text. You can purchase the book from any online or in-store retailer.  The first 10-15 pages will be discussed at the first meeting. Facilitator: Jan Colombo: Jan is a long time academic, book retailer, and experienced book club leader. She will be working with Chhoje Rinpoche on the weekly session content.
