Current Study Session:

Every Wednesday evening at 7:00pm  we gather to study teachings and meditations of interest to Buddhist practictioners. New participants are welcome at any time.

In August  and September we are introducing the topic of Insight by reading and discussing the Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche's A Teaching on Vipasyana. Insight, or Lhaktong in Tibetan, refers to the knowledge that is the realization of selflessness. There are two types of realization of selflessness. One type is an intellectual, or conceptual understanding, which is gained through analysis. The other type is the direct experience of selflessness, which is generated through meditation practice. These two are quite different from one another. In the beginning, however, we have to approach it through analysis, so we will start by going through some analysis leading to the recognition of the fact that there could not be such a thing as the self.

Copies of the book are available for purchase for $7 at the center.  All are welcome!
