Gelek Rimpoche
The Swift Path

Thursdays, March 5, 12, 19, & 26; and April 2 at the Jewel Heart New York center 7:30 PM

The Swift Path, or Nyur Lam in Tibetan, was composed by the 3rd Panchen Lama and succinctly lays the ground for spiritual development by providing clear and relevant topics for visualization and analytical meditations.

Gelek Rimpoche is the Founder and Spiritual Director of Jewel Heart. Among the last generation of incarnate lamas tutored by the great masters in Old Tibet, Rimpoche's command of contemporary Western culture allows him to convey the Tibetan Buddhist tradition with wisdom, kindness and wit.
