Lama went on to say that rather than an essential step towards liberation, in the Western world, the word “renunciation” has a different connotation; people get scared that they will lose their pleasure. As well as giving an overview of the three aspects Geshe-la will be addressing this misconception and explaining the real meaning and value of “renunciation” for reducing suffering and increasing happiness.
Geshe Zopa advised today that the last session on Friday will be a medicine Buddha puja, for the rapid recovery, good health and long life of His Holiness Dalai Lama, who is currently being treated for chest infection. This is in accordance with the Lama Zopa’s advice.
