In Praise of Dependent Origination - Dalai Lama

In Praise of Dependent Origination - Dalai Lama

In this teaching, given over the course of two days, His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama transmits and explains the text considered to be one of the most profound in all of Tibetan Buddhism. Spontaneously composed by Je Tsongkhapa, it addresses the relationship between emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality, and dependent origination: the realization that things do not exist independently from other factors, such as causes and conditions. This text, In Praise of Dependent Origination was composed by the great philosopher-yogi Lama Tsong Khapa, and this commentary by the Dalai Lama was given in San Francisco in 2007. The Dalai Lama delivers his teachings in Tibetan which are translated into English by Thubten Jingpa. MP3 audio format.
