Talk 1 Friday – Sept. 15, 2017  6 – 8 pm MT  
Includes 30 days of video on demand. For streaming instructions:     

The 2017 Shedra with Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche will be in two parts.  Part 1 is on Sept. 15 -17 and Part 2 is on Sept. 22 - 24.

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 opens our understanding of relative and absolute truth, or emptiness. It clarifies deep rooted personal and philosophical misunderstandings we may have about the Middle Way or Madhyamika teachings through its progressive examination and refutation of all the philosophical approaches to existence and non-existence, as well as the relationship of mind to matter, leading up to totral, absolute truth beyond the four extremes.   Rinpoche's teaching may refer to Kunzang Pelden's The Nectar of Manjushri's Speech: A Detailed Commentary on Shantideva's Way of the Bodhisattva, and we recommend that participant's bring a copy in addition to the Bodhisattvacarayavatara.
