Monk teaching

Geshe Yeshi Lhundup continues teachings on

Illumination of the Thought

Je Tsongkhapa’s commentary on Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way

Join us in person or online as we welcome Geshe Yeshi Lhundup for an extended visit to continue his teaching on Je Tsongkhapa’s Illumination of the Thought, a commentary on Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way.

Geshela’s long visit offers a chance to live, train, and offer service with the Sravasti Abbey community. We’ll receive these teachings three times a week,along with other regularly scheduled teachings. Class reviews will be held in person only.

The teachings will also be streamed live.

Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way is prized in Tibetan Buddhism as a supreme explanation of the Middle Way philosophy, considered the highest—that is, the most subtle—understanding of Buddha’s teachings. Written in the 7th Century, it is an introduction to the Middle Way teachings of Nagarjuna, who illuminated the Prajnaparamita Sutras and promoted the Buddha’s teachings on the bodhisattva path to Buddhahood. Je Tsongkhapa’s commentary is prized in the Gelugpa tradition for its brilliant clarification of key points in the Prasangika view.

This course is a rare opportunity for students of Buddhist philosophy and lovers of the teachings on the Middle Way. It’s a chance to study an important text in depth with a resident geshe and experience monastic community. This teaching is suitable for students who have a grounding in the stages of the path and Buddhist philosophy. It is not for beginners.

Prepare for the course by watching Geshe-la’s initial teachings on this text in 2019, 2020, 2021. The teachings can be found here.

All Abbey Dharma courses are offered freely, and we welcome your contributions. You can make offerings any time here.
