DHARAMSHALA, Nov. 3: A three-day teaching on Nagarjuna’s the Precious Garland of the Middle Way (uma rinchen trengwa) by the foremost Tibetan Buddhist leader His Holiness the Dalai lama began on Thursday here at the Thekchen Choling Tsuglakhang temple. The teaching was organized by The International Association of Tibetan Buddhist Dharma, Taiwan.

The Precious Garland of the Middle Way is a commentary written by Indian master Nagarjuna in his composition, Collection of Advices. His Holiness the Dalai Lama had received the same teaching from Serkhong Tsenshab Rinpoche.

Addressing the congregation, the Tibetan leader surmised, “We are gathered here essentially to transform ourselves through the teachings of the Buddha. The teachings of Buddha and particularly the Nalanda school of Buddhism emphasises on inner workings of the human psyche and emotions through analysis and logic to remedy that which destroys our inner peace.”

The Dalai Lama on the first day of the teaching repeatedly stressed on the importance of compassion which he said is a prerequisite in the modern world as all humans are, at the core, social animals who are heavily dependent on one another from birth to death despite secondary differences such as religious preferences, race and nationalities.

The octogenarian Tibetan leader who is 84 years old has cut back on his schedules overseas citing age-related difficulties but has been active reaching out to his devotees and followers through live teleconferencing and video messages to places he is not able to visit personally.

Over 7500 followers and devotees from 61 different countries, primarily from Taiwan were present at the teaching today which was also live streamed across the world. The translations for the teachings were simultaneously available in Chinese, English, Hindi, German, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Spanish and Russia. The teaching will conclude on October 5, 2019.
