Each lecture is given by Geshe Phelgya and a monk and can last between 90 minutes and two hours, including a question and answer session. The tour director will introduce the lama and his interpreter, give the details of the monastery, and offer a brief description of the beliefs of the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
In the words of Gaden Shartse Tour Director Lobsang Wangchuk, "Every action with our body, speech and mind leaves a latent imprint that will ripen sometime in the future. Negative action that is done today will bear negative fruit later. For example, lying is one of the four negative actions of speech. The effect of lying is we will stop trusting people, we will begin to think that other people are lying to us and when we hear the truth we will think it is a lie."
"The Lama will present a lecture on cause and effect so that we can examine our actions and think about their future results. In Buddhism there is no accidents. Everything is caused by our own actions. We have caused everything, so then we can change it."
Suggested donation for all public teachings is $15, Suggested donation for music, dance and multi-media performance $20.
