ABOUT THE COURSE
This course will follow the detailed presentation of the Hinayana or “Path of Individual Liberation” provided in the first volume of the recently published three-volume set, The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma. These texts are a wonderfully edited compilation of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings given at thirteen years of annual three-month seminary programs for advanced students, recently made available for a broader audience in these volumes.
The topics covered in the Winter-Spring 2019 sections build directly on those covered in Fall 2018 and include shamatha or the practice of mindfulness, the four foundations of mindfulness, vipashyana or the practice of awareness, the four noble truths, the path or journey, and the wisdom of egolessness. Trungpa Rinpoche’s presentation of the Hinayana emphasizes closely joining meditation with study. The course is an integral part of the WBC core curriculum.
Note: Price does not include purchase of Volume One, which will be available at our first meeting, at a substantial discount, and will be used for the entire 2018-19 academic year.
