2017 Conferences with Ilia Durovic
During difficult times, we need a short, simple, powerful practice which encapsulates the totality of the teachings and can subdue our minds rapidly. The “Three Principles of the Path” is the innermost essence of Je Tsong kha pa’s teachings and as such, can provide such an indestructible core for our practice. In 2016 we studied in depth mere Definite Emergence and fully- characterised Definite Emergence, the motivations of the Paths of the Being of the Small and Middling Scope, as presented in ‘The Three Principles of the Path’. In 2017, we will focus on the core of the ‘Three Principles of the Path’, the Path of the Being of the Great Scope.
Ilia Durovic is widely regarded as one of the foremost Tibetan translators and western scholars of Buddhist philosophy, providing analytical presentations of Tibetan philosophy, language and priceless access to the dharma as translator of our teachers Kyabje Khensur Kangurwa Lobsang Thubten Rinpoche and Geshe Jampa Gyaltsen. Testament to Ilia’s lifelong dedication to understanding, practicing and making dharma available to others, our resident teacher Geshe Jampa Gyaltsen acknowledged Ilia as being
“equivalent to that of a fully qualified Lharampa Geshe”, with our visiting teacher, Geshe Yama Rinchen further affirming: “Ilia was the best in his class in investigating the teachings and he has practiced extraordinarily well basing his practice on his own analysis of the teachings”.
