Presentation of Tenets

Tenzin Chophel Rinpoche

Feb. 5, 12, 19 Sundays, 4 - 6 PM

Watch online on http://www.livestream.com/lcb


Based on the idea that the Buddha taught different things to different people according to their capacities, Tibetan scholars systematized the numerous trends in Indian Buddhist thought into four schools of Tenets. Each system is seen as a stepping stone to the next, thus providing a gradual approach to the most profound philosophical teachings.

Chophel Rinpoche will teach from the Presentation of Tenets, composed by the renowned scholar and yogi, Jetsün Chökyi Gyaltsen. It is a concise and accessible introduction to the four main schools of Buddhist tenets giving an overview of the assertions on minds, objects, selflessness, and the nature of attainment within each of the schools. From the coarsest view of the Great Exposition, we will move through increasingly subtle views until we arrive at the most subtle one: that of the Middle Way Consequence School (Madhyamika Prasangika).
