Registration is now open for the extended 2017 Light of the Path hosted by Kadampa Center in North Carolina, USA, and taking place August 20-September 17, 2017. We hope that many students will be able to attend in person or participate via live stream and archived video.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche has emphasized since the first Light of the Path retreat in 2009 that participants should review what he has previously taught so he can move forward at each new retreat with his commentary on Lama Atisha’s text, Lamp on the Path to Enlightenment.
Participants can prepare for Light of the Path 2017 by accessing the modules of the online program Living in the Path, specifically created to make Rinpoche’s extensive teachings available in bite-sized chunks for easier study and meditation. Alternatively, participants can watch the videos of the entire Light of the Path 2016 retreat, listen to the MP3 recordings, or read the unedited transcript.
