DHS208 Deluded Mind / Awakened Mind
All the teachings of the Dharma are informed by knowledge of the inner workings of consciousness. As the mind is further cultivated, what seemed confused or difficult becomes magically workable. ‘Deluded mind’ is no longer an obstacle:  all that arises can be brought onto the path of liberation.

Prerequisite: DHS206 or equivalent.

DHS214 Exploring the Heart of Mahayana
Mahayana sutras, with their poetic and visionary ways of questioning and expanding reality, can elude our attempts to parse them conceptually and yet speak beautifully and directly to our hearts. Working with English translations of classic Mahayana sutras, we will engage in pure listening and heartfelt discussion regarding the ineffable “what” that these classics of the second-turning of the Dharma point towards.

In this course, we will be working with the Avatamasaka Sutra.
