Introduction on Rimé (Dharma traditions) and the Three Principal Aspects of the Path (by Je Tsonkhapa)

1.  4 weeks introduction on Rimé (Dharma traditions)

Rimé literally means a ‘non-sectarian’ or ‘non-biased’ view. Some people relate this to the idea that all systems are equal, but it actually focuses on recognising the value and benefit of multiple points-of-view from Gelug, Nyigma, Sakya and Kabje traditions. Although these are different schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the essence of their teachings is the same. Through this philosophical approach of Rimé, the great masters of the past were able to discover the definitive meaning of the Buddha’s profound teachings.

2. The Three Principal Aspects of the Path by Je Tsonkhapa

In this text Je Tsongkhapa explains that renunciation, bodhichitta and a correct view of emptiness (voidness) are the three pathways of mind essential for reaching enlightenment through either the sutra and tantra vehicles of practice.1  Lama Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) is the founder of the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism.

The texts serving as the basis for the course will be:
1. The Four Dharma Traditions of the Land of Tibet by Mipham Rinpoche (
2. Three Principal Aspects of the Path by Je Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa (
