Wednesday evening at 7:00pm we gather to
study teachings and meditations of interest to Buddhist practictioners.
New participants are welcome at any time.
On Wed., March 13 we
will begin to study the late Traleg Rinpoche's wonderful The Essence of Buddhism. This
guide to the Buddhist path from the Tibetan point of view is accessible
and complete. Traleg Kyabgon breaks the teachings down into the three
traditional “vehicles,” while emphasizing that the point of all Dharma
is nothing other than insight into the mind and heart. Along the way he
provides vivid definitions of fundamental Buddhist concepts such as
compassion, emptiness, and Buddha-nature.
Kyabgon Rinpoche (1955-2012) is known for his profound knowledge, clear
explanations, and accessibility to western students. Copies of the book
are available for
purchase for $15 at the center. All are welcome!
