A spiritual poem for the modern world


Gen-la Thubten says,

“I am delighted to have been invited to teach on this  precious text, Request to the Lord of All Lineages, by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.  

This text is a deep spiritual poem written by a great contemporary meditation master that reveals his innermost experiences in exquisite, sublime words.  

If we take the meaning of these precious words into our heart, naturally our mind will change and become more peaceful, joyful and compassionate.  

Eventually we will experience a deep inner peace and happiness that will benefit everyone.  In this way we will become just like the author himself.”

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 Thubten did receive the oral transmission of this prayer directly from Venerable Geshela.

He 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!
