Video: Stages of the Perfection of Wisdom – Lesson 8

The Perfection of Wisdom is the most important Mahayana Buddhist scripture with the core message of how to adopt altruistic way of life unified with the holistic understanding of the doctrine of emptiness.

Rongton Sheja Kunrig wrote many commentaries on some of the important texts on the subject. In addition to them, he wrote a ground breaking freelance text called The Stages of Meditation on The Perfection of Wisdom, which presumed lost by many. But in 1975, the late Khunu Rinpoche taught on the only hand written copy of the text to late Kyabje Chogye Trichen Rinpoche.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche, who also attended the teachings has taught extensively in the past. He has recently completed the long awaited translation on the precious text. Rinpoche will be teaching on the text again and translation of the text will be made available to all course participants.
