Wednesday evening at 7:00pm we gather to
study teachings and meditations of interest to Buddhist practictioners.
New participants are welcome at any time.
August and September we are introducing the topic of Insight by
reading and discussing the Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche's A Teaching on Vipasyana. Insight,
or Lhaktong in Tibetan, refers to the knowledge that is the realization
of selflessness. There are two types of realization of selflessness.
One type is an intellectual, or conceptual understanding, which is
gained through analysis. The other type is the direct experience of
selflessness, which is generated through meditation practice. These two
are quite different from one another. In the beginning, however, we
have to approach it through analysis, so we will start by going through
some analysis leading to the recognition of the fact that there could
not be such a thing as the self.
