During the course of his lifetime, the Buddha gave thousands of teachings. The key to beginning to understand them is knowing an appropriate order in which to study them. Realising this, a succession of great Buddhist scholars arranged all the teachings of the Buddha into a clear and easily accessible system called the “lam-rim chenmo”, or graduated path to enlightenment. This map of the Buddha’s teachings forms the heart of Tibetan Buddhism.
This third module of Discovering Buddhism presents the progressive, step-like structure of the lam-rim, its three scopes, where you fit in at your present stage of spiritual development, what you need to do next, and how to get from here to enlightenment. If you participate in the whole Discovering Buddhism program, this module provides the context for the entire series.
This is the first part of Module 3 of the Discovering Buddhism program. The second part is a practice weekend on the same topic one month later, on 10th and 11th of November. This course provides a fundamental grounding in Buddhist studies. The weekend includes teachings, meditation sessions, and time for discussion. It is suitable for everyone, and anyone is welcome to attend.
Saturday 13th October 9:00 am – Sunday 14th October 3:45 pm, held in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute.
Facility fee $108*
Accommodation and meals available separately.
Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.
