There have always been questions surrounding the protector chants. These are open-ended questions that we should continue to ask ourselves and each other; this course will not be an attempt to put them to rest. Rather we will explore the chants line by line with the help of the original Tibetan texts.

Part One: Monday, November 30, from 6:00–7:30 pm Eastern.
Part Two: Monday, December 7, from 6:00–7:30 pm Eastern.
