2009 was a very busy year for Chag Tong Chen Tong full of many and varied wonderful harmonious activities.

* Dr Sonam Takchoe once again offered his great kindness and generosity in teaching the continuing commentary on the most loved and important Mahayana text Shantidevas Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Many, many students benefited from these fortnightly teachings and we look forward very much to this course of study resuming again on 6th March 2010
* CTCT was very blessed to host visiting teachers offering many topics of interest for the community. We welcomed Ven Tony Beaumont to open our 2009 program and again in November to close for the year. Each of these visits were well attended, generally offering the ever essential essence of the Buddha dharma -topics of the Lam rim, the Graduated Path to Enlightenment.

Dr. Sonam Takchoe has once again accepted our invitation to return to CTCT to continue with commentary on Shantidevas Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life. We are up to Chapter 8.
