In these three evenings, Dr. Thurman will lead participants through the seminal Tibetan Buddhist text and teaching known as The Blade Wheel of Mind Transformation. Originally written by the 10th century Indian master Dharmarakshita, the teaching was passed to his famous student Atisha, founder of the Kadampa Order of Tibetan Buddhism, and from him to generations of students and masters up to the present day. It outlines the use of transcendent wisdom (of emptiness) to help a person transform their self-defeating self-preoccupation to a more enlightened and balanced perspective; that is, one suited to finding happiness in, and ultimately making sense of, life. This teaching will be given by HHDL during His visit to the US this September and the class is intended as preparation.
Suitable for all levels.
