Tharlam Ling Buddhist Centre in Townsville will be hosting a repeat teaching by Lama Choedak Rinpoche of the second year of The Complete Path (TCP) course.

IBA Banner

The International Buddhist Academy (IBA) in Kathmandu has launched this global training program that encompasses teaching the Buddhist path in the Sakya tradition in its entirety. Called The Complete Path, this unique 7-year program has been devised to provide Dharma practitioners of all levels of experience a systematic training focused mainly on the theory and practice of the Vajrayana path as transmitted by the founding masters of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism.

*UPDATE* - Lama Choedak Rinpoche has confirmed that this course is open to everyone. Even if you haven't completed the 1st year of the Complete Path course you are still welcome to attend the second year.

If you wish to study the material from year 1 (optional), an online course is available as a substitute if you were unable to attend the Year 1 teaching on Clarifying the Sage’s Intent. For details, click on this link:

Year 2 of the Complete Path will focus on Ngorchen Khonchog Lhundrup’s The Beautiful Ornament of The Three Visions, which is one of the most important texts in Sakya tradition which prepares a practitioner to receive the higher levels of teachings such as Lamdre.

At the end of each year’s course, participants who have completed all previous years will receive a certificate (note that you can still attend this year of the course regardless). A special certificate will be awarded to participants for completion of the full 7-year program.
