Deepening Compassion: Emptiness and Absolute Bodhicitta
The power of the Mahayana comes from its clarity regarding the true nature of reality. This clarity is described as penetrating insight (prajna), that sees that the world is actually different from what we habitually think it is. Instead of assuming that beings, objects and systems are solid, truly existing independently, the bodhisattva sees that everything is empty of concepts and reference points (shunyata).
The course includes:
- Five recorded classes with different teachers.
- Readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings
- Contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives
- A discussion forum.
Talk 1 - Going Beyond Concept: Prajna and Absolute Bodhicitta
