Buddhist Study Program

The Hinayana View

Buddhism is not a religion in the usual sense of the word. It is a method of investigation that allows you to work skillfully with the positive potentials and negative energies of your own mind. The teachings of the Hinayana, the Foundational Vehicle, represent the most fundamental instructions of the Buddha, which are central to everything that follows. Hinayana studies are basic to any training in Buddhism.   While considered a foundational vehicle, it is a complete path that can lead to life free from suffering.

In the Nalandabodhi Path of Study, Hinayana studies introduce you to Buddhism as a science of mind, or method of investigation.  The Nalandabodhi study curriculum offers two Hinayana courses.  The first course covers the ground or view of Hinayana, and the second covers the Hinayana path and its results.

The Hinayana View
This course introduces you to the Hinayana as the indispensable foundation of the three-yana system of Buddhist study (Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana). Then you will learn the main elements of the Hinayana view, through a detailed examination of the building blocks of the Buddhist science of mind.

Audience: Open to the general public and any and all students of Buddhism.
