Upcoming Special Events at Deer Park

Deer Park Summer Course
July 8 - 26, 2024

Deer Park is very pleased to announce the Summer Course for 2024.

We are so fortunate to welcome Ven. Zeekgyab Rinpoche, abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India. He will teach the first week. 

Ven. Geshe Tenzin Sherab and Ven. Geshe Lhundup Jinpa, Deer Park’s wonderful resident teachers, will each teach on different topics for the second and third weeks. 

Program details and registration are forthcoming.
We hope you can join us for this wonderful intensive study program. Any level of attendance is welcome.
Please mark your calendar!

July 8 - 12, 2024
Ven. Zeekgyab Rinpoche
 will teach Acarya Nagarjuna’s "Precious Garland," a text of 500 verses which presents the worldly and transcendent – conventional and ultimate realities. It is an integration of the wisdom needed within our spiritual journey toward Buddhahood with the complex demands of daily life. Every page of this text holds a transformative meditation on how to make all of our actions a cause for enlightenment. 

July 15 - 19, 2024
Ven. Geshe Tenzin Sherab will continue teaching Arya Nagarjuna's "Commentary on Bodhicitta." This is a beautiful and profound text just to read. Each verse is a meditation. In Arya Nagarjuna's own words: "I shall explain here the meditative practice of awakening mind that destroys cyclic existence." Arya Nagarjuna then explains how the nature of our mind being empty of inherent existence can evolve into the omniscience of a Buddha. An opportunity to be guided through this text is most fortunate!

July 22 - 26, 2024
Ven. Geshe Lhundup Jinpa will teach Yang jen ga way lo dro’s "Death, Intermediate State and Rebirth," a teaching considered a preliminary (ngondro) and indispensable to practicing the generation and completion stages of Tantra. It is a unique Buddhist perspective about the process of death and rebirth and helps us to understand the causes of Buddhahood. Taking death onto the path transforms into the Dharmakaya, intermediate state (bardo) into the Sambhogakaya, and rebirth into the Nirmanakaya – the three bodies of a Buddha! This is a rare opportunity to immerse ourselves into this fascinating topic. There are no prerequisites for this course.
