Bangalore -- Choe Khor Sum Ling, a Tibetan
Buddhist Meditation & Study Centre, is inviting
everyone to a very special long awaited event: on
September 8-10 Geshe Dorji Damdul will give a
teaching on the most profound concept of the
Buddhist philosophy - Emptiness & Interdependent
Arising. Over three evenings Geshe Dorji Damdul
will give teachings on interdependent-arising and
emptiness, the true nature of reality. Geshe la
will explain how by seeing the ultimate reality
of all existence one can attain freedom from the sufferings of samsara.

These teachings will be based on the 24th chapter
of The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way
(Mulamadhyamakakarika) composed by Arya
Nagarjuna, one of the foremost scholars of
ancient Nalanda University. In this text
Nagarjuna playfully shows the absurdities that we
fall into if we interpret emptiness as meaning
nothingness, or reject emptiness in favor of permanence.

Geshe Dorji Damdul is one of the official translators of His

Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama. He is a popular and
respected teacher, particularly for his teachings
on emptiness, a distinguished Buddhist scholar,
whose interest lies in the relation between
Buddhism and science, especially in physics.
Geshe la has participated in several of the
renowned conferences entailing dialogues between
His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama and western
scientists organized by Mind and Life Institute.

Currently Geshe la serves as a Deputy Director of
Tibet House, New Delhi, where he gives lectures
and leads philosophy classes and meditation
retreats. Geshe la travels widely in India and
abroad to teach Buddhist philosophy and practice.
