Australian Festival November 2021 | The Way of Wisdom

Prajnaparamita Empowerment & Teachings on the Three Principal Aspects of the Path

The Perfection of Wisdom reveals the true nature of reality. The great
masters Nagarjuna and Je Tsongkhapa clarified this to be Buddha’s
ultimate view. This special view, known as ‘the union of appearance and
emptiness’, as well as the paths of renunciation and bodhichitta were
succinctly presented in the timeless text ‘The Three Principal Aspects of
the Path’, carefully translated by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in his
book ‘The Mirror of Dharma with Additions’.
At this year’s Australian Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab will grant the
blessing empowerment of Buddha Prajnaparamita, the embodiment
of the Perfection of Wisdom. He will then give teachings on the three
principal aspects of the path. By taking these teachings to heart, we can
realise Buddha’s ultimate view, and become an enlightened being ourself.
