In this year's MSB Shedra, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will
teach the revered ninth chapter from The
Nectar of Manjushri's Speech: A Detailed Commentary on Shantideva's Way
of the Bodhisattva by Kunzang Pelden.
The Bodhisattvacarayavatara (The Bodhisattva’s way of life)
is one of the most illustrious and renowned Mahayana classics. In particular,
the 9th chapter, which elucidates the meaning of the Transcendent Wisdom of
Emptiness, lies at the very heart of all Buddhist practice and realization.
Shantideva himself says in the very first verse of this chapter: “This entire
preparation the Sage taught for the sake of wisdom. Thus, one wishing to bring
an end to suffering should develop wisdom.” This text will blow open your
understanding of emptiness and clarify deep rooted personal and philosophical
misunderstandings you have about insight.
