An 8-week introduction to the Buddhist philosophy of the Middle Way and the view of emptiness and nonduality, based on Chandrakirti’s Madhyamakavatara.
The online seminar series introduces the Madhyamaka or “Middle Way” teachings, the foundational view of emptiness and nonduality upon which all Buddhist practice is based. The seminars are based on Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche’s teachings on the Buddhist view, especially his teachings on Chandrakirti’s Madhyamakavatara, as well as other related teachings by Rinpoche including the Heart Sutra, the Vajracchedika Sutra, the Two Truths and the Four Seals.
