The lamrim or the “graduated path” is a presentation of Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings that details the stages in the complete path to enlightenment. In the single-pointed Lamrim meditation, you will focus your mind on one single object at a time and walk through the various stages to liberation. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recently given new advice suggesting that students follow a lamrim outline and meditate on each subject for two weeks or one month until all subjects have been completed.
Rinpoche advised “The amount of time for meditation is up to the individual, but the general advice is to finish the lamrim in one year”. Depending on the duration of your stay, you will be introduced to one or various meditations and teach you how to continue this beautiful path.
