Geshe Yeshi Lhundup on
Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way
We’re happy to welcome Geshe Yeshi Lhundup to continue his teaching on Chandrakirti’s Supplement to the Middle Way.
Geshe la offers a rare opportunity for students of Buddhist philosophy and lovers of the teachings on Great Compassion and the Middle Way. This teaching is suitable for students who have a grounding in the stages of the path and Buddhist philosophy. It is not for beginners.
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.
