Collective Topics with Geshe Jangchu

Collective Topics with Geshe Jangchu 
Saturdays & Sundays in July*

The purpose of all Buddhist practice is to cultivate compassion and eradicate suffering. The prime cause of suffering is ignorance. ‘Learning is like a lamp for eliminating the darkness of ignorance.

 

The purpose of studying Collected Topics is to develop one’s own path of reasoning at the same time as one assimilates the basic elements of the Buddhist way of looking at things. The course covers a series of subjects beginning with the most obvious, colors and shapes, then proceeding to examine Buddhist criteria for existence, how existing phenomena may be categorized, causes and effects, generalities and instances, contradiction and relation, defining characteristics and objects defined, negative and positive phenomena and more. These subjects are the indispensable foundation for an investigation of the Perfection of Wisdom literature and the Middle Way view and provide a kind of grammar of Buddhist philosophy.

 

*This course will be offered in English and Chinese at separate times.

Chinese teachings will be on Saturdays from 7-9pm and broadcast live for long distance students at the following link:
