tibetan buddhist philosophy

About the Course | Wednesdays, 08 September – 10 November | 19:00 – 20:30
To be liberated from suffering Samsara and achieve Enlightenment, one needs to realise Emptiness. And to get a clear understanding of Emptiness we need to depend on the works of the Indian masters. Arya Nagarjuna was one of the greatest scholars of the ancient Nalanda tradition and his work Fundamental Wisdom is a masterpiece. Lama Tsongkhapa saw this excellent work as very important and realised emptiness through reading commentaries on chapter 18 of this text. Geshe Namdak will teach this inspiring and profound chapter and Nagarjuna’s precious instruction on the nature of the mind, called Praise of the Vajra Mind.

Is this for me?
