The Song of the Zhenpa Zhidral
About 15 people attended part or all of the day led by Paul Rogers, who runs the Exeter Dechen Group, on the commentary by Jetsun Dragpa Gyaltsen on Parting From the Four Attachments, one of the principal teachings of the Sakya tradition. Presented in four one-hour sessions, Paul gave a fluent explanation of the verses and the commentary, in a way that clearly demonstrated his understanding of the teaching. His sense of humour punctuated his presentation which made it light and accessible, but also with earnest undertones. He gave much encouragement to the audience, many of whom were fairly new to Dharma, to really listen to and study this teaching which encapsulates the entire Buddhist path. Many thanks again to Paul for travelling to Bristol to share this wonderful teaching.
