Two and a half millennia ago the Buddha taught that without joy (gawa in Tibetan) there is no awakening/enlightenment. The Path of Joy is an ancient Buddhist practice that starts with arousing simple, heart-felt joy and culminates in the state of Dzogpachenpo, which is the Tibetan word for perfect enlightenment.

This practice was transmitted to Jamyang Tenphel by the Tibetan master Togden Amtrin (1922 – 2005), a revered yogi of the Drukpa Kagyu lineage and Dzogchen master, and is one of the 84 thousand complete methods to liberation.

In this talk we will discuss the importance of joy, how to engage in the practice itself and how joy is used to give rise to and deeply experience the fundamental aspects of each of the Buddhist vehicles – from the Sutrayana all the way to the practice of Dzogchen.  We will also discuss how to undertake a joy challenge, a period in time in which we commit to embracing joy for at least part of our day. The Path of Joy is a potent and profound practice that can be used independently or in conjunction with other Buddhist practices to awaken to our true nature.
