This is a class that Geshe Michael Roach taught on a special woodblock carving called “The Stages of Meditation” (seen at left). This poster presents an entire course in meditation and was designed by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche based upon the teachings of the Indian master Kamalashila (c. 775AD), whose 3-part Stages of Meditation is the foundation of all later schools of meditation in Tibet. The course further relies heavily upon the very detailed presentation of this system given by Je Tsongkapa in his major works on the steps of the path.This is a complete teaching on this meditation chart. Geshe Michael usually only summarizes this teaching and doesn’t go into much detail, he’s only taught it in full once in his life back in 1998.
