Reflections on Bodhicharya Summer Camp 2020
Tessa King

2020’s virtual Summer Camp finished yesterday and I am feeling rather sad!  It was a wonderfully rich five days. The Three Principal Aspects of the Path by Je Tsongkhapa is a central text in the Gelug tradition and is described ‘as a summation of all the paths of practice which lead to enlightenment’. The text is short and packed with meaning and Rinpoche in his gentle style laid out all its riches before us.   When Rinpoche says his signature phrase:  ‘now it’s like this’ – you know you are going to be given the heart of the teachings in an accessible and meaningful way.  Rinpoche’s gift to us all is that he makes you feel it is possible, we can progress on the path and that is the sign of a teacher who has fully realised the teachings himself.
