DHS405 Question Of Identity

Who creates, controls, enjoys, defiles, or purifies experience? Am ‘I' substantial, or have 'I' as Tarthang Tulku writes, "entered into an illusory partnership with an entity that has no existence of its own"? Experiential exercises will shed light on these questions, while lecture will examine the ten kinds of self as described by the Bodhisattva Maitreya and the Nyingma master Lama Mipham.

Prerequisite: concurrent registration in DHS203 or consent of the Instructor.

DHS406 The Four Immeasurables

Cultivating the “four immeasurable” states of mind—love, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity—is a classic Buddhist practice that teaches us to transcend our ordinary way of being and our limited way of understanding love. We discover an inner serenity that fosters the realization of selflessness.

Readings: Kindly Bent to Ease Us, Volume 1, pages 106–122.

Suitable for all levels of students.

NPR406 Medicine Buddha Workshop

It is said that simply hearing the Medicine Buddha’s name and his mantra brings forth powerful blessings for the healing of body and mind. Medicine Buddha practice is for healing and releasing all kinds of accumulated negativity or impurities, including trauma and long-term illnesses. It also works on a subtle level to help cleanse and purify layers of imbalanced emotionality and confusion, removing all sickness, obstacles, traces of negative actions, and obscurations. By practicing and chanting together as a group, we support each other and strengthen the power of our practice. The blessings of this practice can be directed towards yourself; loved ones such as family, friends, or pets; and all beings in need of healing.
