DHS207 Gateway to Knowledge: Quarter 6 of the Path of Liberation Program
19th century master Lama Mipham is considered a manifestation of Manjushri, the bodhisattva of wisdom. We will study one of his works together in this course, which is part of a 2-year program, Path of Liberation.*
We deepen our search for awakened mind through an in-depth study of topics from Gateway to Knowledge (Tib. mKhas-’jug and its commentary) by the great Tibetan teacher Lama Mipham. With penetrating analysis, we look again at inner and outer phenomena and the sense fields. We explore teachings on ‘what is possible and what is impossible’ along with teachings on time and the arising of the system of suffering.
Students will gain:
-A deeper understanding of traditional systems, as detailed by the great master Lama Mipham, that are used to analyze the mind
-An opportunity to engage with the categories of knowledge considered important for entering the path
-A supportive environment for exploring, reflecting upon, discussing, and applying the relevance of these methodologies for transformation to their own lives
Prerequisites: DHS206 or equivalent, or permission of instructors.
There are two workshops included with this course: The Wheel of Life (DHS408) and Cutting Off Negative Thoughts (MED415).
