Virtual Event

Nagarjuna’s Philosophy: Emptiness and the Ultimate Nature of the Mind (Day 10)

November 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event
Free – £15
tibetan buddhist philosophy

About the Course
To be liberated from suffering Samsara and achieve Enlightenment, one needs to realise Emptiness. And to get a clear understanding of Emptiness we need to depend on the works of the Indian masters. Arya Nagarjuna was one of the greatest scholars of the ancient Nalanda tradition and his work Fundamental Wisdom is a masterpiece. Lama Tsongkhapa saw this excellent work as very important and realised emptiness through reading commentaries on chapter 18 of this text. Geshe Namdak will teach this inspiring and profound chapter and Nagarjuna’s precious instruction on the nature of the mind, called Praise of the Vajra Mind.

Is this for me?
To attend this course, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of Buddhist philosophy, for example: by having attended Introduction to Buddhism or Introduction to Buddhist Philosophy.

What can I expect?
The second of two in-depth lecture series delivered by Geshe Namdak on one of the most important texts in the Buddhist canon, authored by one of the tradition’s most influential philosophers.

Schedule
Wednesdays, 08 September – 10 November | 19:00 – 20:30
