'May Confusion Dawn as Wisdom' - Open House Talk

with Peter Conradi

January 13th

Date details +
    Room: Main meditation hall

    'May Confusion Dawn as Wisdom': this represents our aspiration for meditation practice. But what does it mean? How does confusion belong in our practice and in our lives? What helpful role can confusion possibly play?

    This slogan is the fourth so-called Dharma of Gampopa.
