Dhammapada: The Buddha's Path of Wisdom
 

   

Dhammapada is a highly esteemed text in Pali Tipitaka, the sacred scriptures of Theravada Buddhism. The original text was composed in the ancient Pali language.  According to the Theraveda Buddhism tradition, each verse in the dhammapada was originally spoken by the Buddha in repsonse to specific events.

All the essential teachings of Buddha are comprised in the 432 verses and provides sympathetic counsel, inspires humility and relfections and is a perennial source of inspiration and practical instruction for right living. This class began on May 04, 2017 and ended on May 05, 2018.

FOUR HUNDRED STANZAS OF THE MIDDLE WAY
   

Geshe Sherap will introduce the Land of Enlightened students to Aryadeva's Four Hundred Stanzas, as part of the 2017 Teaching Program.

Madhyamika is a philosophy of the middle way between two impossible extremes, that of reified or objective existence  and that of total non-existence.

Madhyamika philosophy demonstrates through the use of reasoning that though things do not exist independently and concretely as they seem to do, they neverless exist: their mode of existence is a dependent one.

IN PRAISE OF THE DHARMADHATU
Taught By Venerable Yeshi Dorjee
     
Dharmadhatu is the seed of enlightenment. It is the nature of the mind of Awareness and Luminosity.  There are three necessary stages: 1. Dharmadhatu  2. Study of Buddha's Teachings 3. Result and Possibility of the Dharmakaya.
 
 
I bow to you, the dharmadhātu,
Who resides in every sentient being.
 
 
In the stainless dharmakāya,
The sea of wisdom finds its place.
