Special Weekend Course • The Essence of Mahamudra

19 – 21 May with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab & Gen Kelsang Lakpa

About the Weekend

This special weekend course will provide an opportunity to receive teachings on Mahamudra, the heart practice of Kadampa Buddhism, based on the book The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra, the Very Essence of Buddha’s Teachings of Sutra and Tantra by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Mahamudra is a special sequence of Highest Yoga Tantra meditation practices that swiftly leads us to full enlightenment.

We are very fortunate to receive this commentary from Gen-la Khyenrab who received the oral transmission of this practice directly from the lineage holder, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. This weekend will be co-taught by Gen Kelsang Lakpa, Resident Teacher of Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Quebec City.


Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab is the New Kadampa Tradition National Spiritual Director for Canada and Resident Teacher of the National Temple in Toronto. With over 35 years of experience, Gen-la Khyenrab is an internationally renowned teacher and Buddhist monk who is well known for his powerful teachings and pure example.

Gen Kelsang Lakpa is the Resident Teacher of Tushita Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Quebec city. He has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism for many years and is well known for his practical and warm-hearted approach to sharing Buddha’s teachings.
