Discovering Buddhism

Presenting the Path
Facilitated by David Gould and Arunas Antanaitis


 

 

 

 

 

In this course you'll gain a clear idea of the path to enlightenment, especially its three main components: renunciation, bodhichitta, and the right view of emptiness. You will understand the progressive, step-like structure of the Lamrim, its origin in the teachings of Guru Shakyamuni Buddha, the three scopes, where you fit at your present stage of spiritual development, what you need to do next, and how you get from there to enlightenment. This course comprises of teachings, discussions, short meditations and readings.

This is the third course in a 14 part series introducing Buddhist meditation and philosophy, called “Discovering Buddhism” offered by the Western Buddhist organization called the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
You are welcome to join in at any time and do not need any previous experience in Buddhism to participate in and benefit from this course. As the Dalai Lama says:
"Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a better Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."
