The Library of Wisdom and Compassion
November 6 @ 4:00 pm - November 13 @ 2:00 pm PST
Teachings from the Library of Wisdom and Compassion book series,
co-authored by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Ven. Thubten Chodron,
Ven. Thubten Chodron continues her line by line reading and commentary of the remarkable multi-volume book series encompassing the entire Buddhist path, The Library of Wisdom and Compassion. His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Ven. Chodron are co-authors.
The book series and this course offer a rich opportunity to delve into important aspects of Buddhist philosophy.
The course includes two teachings daily, structured group discussions, and time for study.
Ven. Chodron taught the first volume, Approaching the Budddhist Path, in weekly installments over two years. You can watch the series here. She began Volume 2, The Foundation of Practice, in two residential courses (see them here) and is now continuing this volume in weekly Livestreamed teachings. (Join in here.) We’ll know later in the year whether this residential course will cover Volume 2 or Volume 3, Samsara, Nirvana, and Buddha Nature. Check back.
Like all Abbey programs, the The Library of Wisdom and Compassion course is offered on a donation basis. An offering and registration form are requested to reserve your place for the retreat.
Arrive by 4:00 on Friday, November 6. Course ends after lunch on Friday, November 13.
