    Room: All Rooms

    The Four Dharmas of Gampopa
    Grant your blessings so that my mind may be one with the dharma
    Grant your blessings so that dharma may progress along the path.
    Grant your blessings so that the path may clarify confusion.
    Grant your blessings so that confusion may dawn as wisdom.

    In this open house talk and discussion we will discuss this slightly mystifying, inspiring chant about the practice of clarifying and transcending confusion and realizing wisdom. This discussion is based on Chogyam Trungpa’s 1975 seminar at Karme Choling which was attended by many relatively new students in one of the earlier public gatherings in which he taught.
