We’re delighted to continue our online classes in Nalandabodhi’s Mahayana study curriculum, starting Saturday, September 18, 2021.
The third course in this series, Not Even A Middle, is an Intermediate-level study course of the Mahayana tradition based on the Prajñāpāramitā sutras, and emphasizes the teachings of emptiness and compassion.
This course introduces Mādhyamika, or the “Middle Way” School of Buddhist Philosophy and will include discussions on the Two Realities, the progressive stages of letting go, the Five Great Mādhyamika reasonings and the benefits and results of realizing emptiness. It also looks at the school’s historical development in India and Tibet and distinctions between its major branches.
Led by senior students, the format will include a brief period of Shamatha meditation, a summary of the chapter and discussion of the content. The course book is available for purchase.
This is number three of six courses in the Mahayana series, Compassion Without Limit.
The Nalandabodhi Study Path curriculum is designed by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche as a progressive series of teachings. It is highly recommended that students have completed the Intro and Hinayana course series (or the equivalent) before taking this course.
Time: Every second Saturday from September 18 to December 11 from 11:00am – 12:30pm Pacific Time.
Zoom link will be sent in early September.
