September 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDT
Tonight’s class is pre-empted by a teaching for the Perfection of Generosity retreat.
Streamed live weekly, Fridays, 6:00 pm Pacific Time
In this weekly series, Ven. Thubten Chodron gives reading and commentary on Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature, Volume 3 in the multi-volume book series of The Library of Wisdom and Compassion by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Ven. Chodron.
Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature explores the mind’s role in creating the extreme duhkha (unsatisfactoriness) of our present existence and our infinitely vast potential to become free of it. This volume shows us how to purify our minds and cultivate awakened qualities.

“This third volume of the marvelous Library of Wisdom and Compassion series provides an exploration of saṃsāra—the painful cycle of unenlightened existence—as well as its causes and how to attain freedom from it. The final sections contain a beautiful elucidation of the nature of the mind and its potential—buddha nature—signifying that every living being has the ability not only to be free of suffering and its causes but also to attain full awakening. The material in this volume is invaluable for those who sincerely wish to understand the Buddhist path and begin following it.”
—Venerable Sangye Khadro, author of How to Meditate
