Join us in a deep dive into the vibrant and diverse landscape of Buddhism through the lens of the Three Yanas (Vehicles). Discover how these distinct paths – Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana – offer unique solutions to the common problem of suffering. Through this exploration, we will gain a greater appreciation for the multifaceted wisdom and practices that form the rich tapestry of Buddhist traditions. Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or a curious newcomer, this presentation will illuminate the beauty and depth of the Buddhist journey toward enlightenment.


About the speaker: Jimmy Yi Hsien Liao’s journey is one of an exciting transformation. With an academic background in engineering, his life’s direction shifted during an enlightening trip to Tibet. There, he encountered the profound depths of Tibetan Buddhism, prompting him to pursue monastic studies and deepen his understanding in India and Myanmar, learning from venerable teachers such as Sayalaw U Kundala and Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche. With over twenty years immersed in various Buddhist traditions, Jimmy now shares his meditative knowledge as a lay teacher. His approach is grounded in the wisdom garnered from a life of spiritual pursuit, aiming to impart the art of navigating one’s mind with simplicity and wonder akin to a child’s first bicycle ride. Each meditation session is a stride closer to enlightenment.
