To receive teachings and advice
from a fully accomplished meditation master is a rare privilege,
but those who attend the Festival get to hear Geshe Kelsang
teach for days at a time.
This year, Geshe-la introduced the practices of Sutra and
He explained that Mahamudra is the union of great bliss and
"This union of great bliss and emptiness is the very
essence of Buddha’s teachings, and especially it is
the very essence of Buddha’s teaching of Highest Yoga
"It is the superior quick method for attaining enlightenment.
If we gain the direct realization of the union of great bliss
and emptiness, we will attain enlightenment within a few years,
or even months, there is no doubt."
