We are happy to host Khenpo Tsering Samdrup again this August for a 4-day intensive Buddhist Studies course from Friday to Monday, August 25-28.
The course will cover three texts by Maitreya. Bring your pen, notebooks, and copies of the texts. This program is not geared towards beginners but rather students with some background in Buddhist philosophy. If you are not sure if this course is for you, you are welcome to join us for the first session(s) before comitting to the full program.
The course will use two of Maitreya’s Five Teachings to provide an “analysis of how ordinary confused consciousness can be transformed into wisdom,“ and how we should understand Buddha Nature, the “ground of enlightenment… and the nature and qualities of Buddhahood.” We will also begin studying volume one of Mipham Rinpoche’s Gateway to Knowledge, a condensation of the Buddha’s teachings, “the philosophical backbone of the living tradition of Tibettan Buddhism”.
