Nalandabodhi is offering a series of Buddhist study courses this fall. One course is part of the Introduction to Buddhist series and is called Traveling from Confusion to Original Sanity. The other course is part of the Mahayana curriculum and is called Not Even a Middle. It is an overview of the Middle Way School and the teachings of the Madhyamaka.
Join us for an engaging introduction to basic buddhist principles that are both practical and profound. The courses are open to anyone. The Introductory courses are for people new to Buddhism. The Mahayana courses are for those who have had some Buddhist study.
The courses meet once a week from 7:00 to 8:30. They use a sourcebook of teachings by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. The teachings mix traditional Buddhist topics with examples and analogies from contemporary Western life. Rinpoche has lived in the West for over 20 years and has a keen sense of humor about our lives in today’s Western society.
The Introductory course meets 4 times and the cost is $30, which includes the sourcebook. The Mahayana class meets 8 times and the cost is $75 for members and $90 for non-members, and includes the sourcebook.
