DHS101 The Words Of The Buddha

Reading the Sutras is an ongoing course that examines in detail essential sutras in the Buddhist tradition. We read the sutras not as historical texts but as a practical encounter with the teachings of the Buddha. Our goal is to develop a respect for the sutra tradition and to foster an internal examination of how these texts can speak to our twenty-first century experience.

Prerequisites: Sincere interest in the Buddha’s teachings.

DHS208 Deluded Mind / Awakened Mind

The seventh quarter of the Path of Liberation program looks at mind (citta). We will explore how mind of ignorance and delusion are transformed into awakened mind. All the teachings of the Dharma are informed by knowledge of the inner workings of consciousness. Like a magical elixir, when Dharma unites with ordinary, deluded mind, awakened mind comes into view. In this class, readings from Path of Heroes and the Bodhicharyavatara will guide and inspire our efforts to study and practice.

Prerequisite: DHS206 or equivalent.
