Teachings on the Bardos  

andrewmainheadshot-245x300What are the best meditations for death? How can I help others die? Can I help them after death? Learn about advance directives, signs of impending death, hospice, grief, funeral issues, and medical and legal challenges. What about suicide, organ donation, sudden death, euthanasia, abortion, or the death of a pet? With preparation, we can transcend death, transforming the greatest obstacle into a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – for ourselves and for others.

blue flower center

The Nalandabodhi Boulder Center for American Buddhism is offering a series of courses on foundational Buddhist topics based on talks by the beloved teacher and scholar Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

The introductory courses in the Nalandabodhi Path of Study explore the basic principles of Buddhism and serve as a foundation for further classes in the study curriculum. These classes are a great place to start for newly interested Buddhists. For those who have been studying Buddhism, they are a wonderful way to strengthen insight, gain further clarity on the teachings of the Buddha, and connect with a genuine modern lineage community.

Courses are led by senior Nalandabodhi students accompanied by a sourcebook of talks by Ponlop Rinpoche. Classes are offered on a progressive and ongoing basis, giving students a chance to study the Buddhist path from an introductory level through to teachings on Mahayana and Vajrayana topics.

The next course is Karma, Rebirth, and Selflessness

All are welcome! These classes may be attended as a 4-week course or on a drop-in basis.

The course is $25 and includes the sourcebook. This option is for people interested in attending all of the classes.

For drop-in participation, a donation of $5 per evening is requested. You may attend any evening talk or discussion.

A short guided meditation will start each class.

Date/Time: April 5 through April 26, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

Cost: $25 for the 4 classes, including the sourcebook. Othewise, a $5 donation is requested.

Contact:  Steve Burden at sherablt@gmail.com.  We need a count of people so we have a count of the sourcebooks needed.

Teachings on the Bardos

andrewmainheadshot-245x300We are excited to announce that Andrew Holecek will be returning to Nalandabodhi for teachings on the bardo.  The bardo teachings are intended for the end stages of life, but a closer reading reveals their deeper meaning: they apply to every moment. Any situation that ends — a job, relationship, day, or moment of mind — abides by bardo principles. Learning how to die is learning how to live.  Tuesday Evenings, February 7 through March 14.  More information …  The first class has started but you are welcome to attend and catch up via an audio recording.
