NETF The Annual John Sellon Memorial Program with Khenpo Pema Wangdak
The Theosophical Classic, The Voice of the Silence, by H.P. Blavatsky will be examined in the light of the original Tibetan Texts and Teachings.
Celebrate the memory of John Sellon this Labor Day weekend at PHRC with the Voice of the Silence. HPB's last and most precious gift, a translation of an ancient Tibetan text. Through meditation, study, lecture and ritual we will attempt to perceive the mysteries contained therein. We will be honored by the presence of Khenpo Pema Wangdak assisting us in our journey to understand the way of the boddhisattva. Familiarity with "The Voice of the Silence" is strongly recommended.
