When: Tuesdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET
*** we will take a break from this program on Tuesday, November 15 in order to celebrate Lhabab Düchen, a Buddhist Holy day. You can see details about the morning session here, and about the evening session at this link.
Join our literature circle based on the volumes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Library of Wisdom and Compassion. Edited by Venerable Thubten Chodron specifically for a modern western audience. We are reading ‘Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature (Volume 3)’. This week we will continue with Chapter 13 “Buddha Nature” starting from the section Nine Similes for Tathāgatagarbha, and then continue into Chapter 14 “Going Deeper into Buddha Nature”, just the first section: The Three Turnings of the Dharma Wheel. Everyone is welcome even if you have not read the prior chapters.
“Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature” explores the mind’s role in creating the extreme duhkha (unsatisfactoriness) of our present existence and our infinitely vast potential to become free of it. This volume shows us how to purify our minds and cultivate awakened qualities.
Everyone is welcome.
This group discussion is led by Dave Gould.
