The Buddhist Tradition
A Twelve Course Study Intensive
Beginning April, 2019
In April 2019, Dzogchen College began a comprehensive study of 2,000 years of Buddhist teaching from the early sutras of the Buddha to the works of present day teachers.
This unprecedented study intensive consists of twelve courses, one per quarter, for three years, meeting weekly. Each course is built around key Buddhist texts. Talks and discussion will focus on highlighting the key insights of the texts and the teaching traditions they embody.
The twelve courses are:
Early Buddhism: Teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha
Early Buddhism: The Renunciate Tradition
Early Buddhism: Abhidharma Texts
Early Mahayana: Nagarjuna and the Prajna-Paramita Tradition (Feb. 2020)
Yogacara: Teachings of Asanga
Yogacara: Teachings of Vasubandu
Chinese Yogacara: Chen Wei Shih Lun
Chinese Zen: Cultivating the Empty Field
Japanese Buddhism: Kukai, Shinran and Dogen
Tibetan Buddhism: Lam Rim “Instructions on the Path” Tradition
Tibetan Buddhism: Tantric Buddhism
Tibetan Buddhism: Dzogchen
There are no prerequisites to the courses, which are offered without charge. Participants who have a daily meditation practice will benefit most from the course since the principle focus of interest is meditation and the reality it discloses.
