May I Become Just Like You

We all have the potential to discover remarkable qualities in ourselves. This might be finding some genuine mental peace for ourselves or developing our wisdom, love and compassion.


The most effective way to improve our human nature is to rely upon someone who has already perfected these qualities, such as Buddha or our own Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. We can then follow the same proven path as they did with complete confidence.


All the essential meditation we need to unlock our potential are contained in the special prayer “Request to the Lord of All Lineages”. With these meditations we can learn how to make swift progress, from finding mental peace and happiness up to the bliss of full Enlightenment.


Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang did receive the oral transmission of this prayer directly from Venerable Geshela.


She will help us to discover the meaning of this powerful prayer and how to apply it practically in our daily lives. It is a rare opportunity to receive an explanation and commentary to these wonderful verses and a weekend not to be missed. How fortunate we are!



This course will be taught by Resident Teacher, Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang.

She is highly experienced, well-respected and has been a close disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for more than 25 years. She is also the National Spiritual Director of Austria, Switzerland and South Africa and teaches at National Festivals. She has won the admiration and affection of many students through her pure example and loving-kindness.
Her teachings are powerful and clear.
