Hosted by Root Institute for Wisdom Culture
Wisdom of Ultimate Truth
with Ven. Sangye Khadro
Fridays, June 4 to August 6
The wisdom of ultimate truth—also known as emptiness in Madhyamaka philosophy—is the highest form of wisdom, because by developing it we have the key to freedom from all of our suffering and its causes, especially ignorance/confusion. In this course we will start with an overview of the essential foundations of Buddha’s teaching—the four truths, the two truths, the eightfold path–for those new to Buddhism. Then we will explore the role of wisdom on the Buddhist path—its purpose, the different types of wisdom, etc. Finally we will focus on the wisdom of emptiness, ultimate truth—what that means, how to develop it, and so on. We will also look at the connections between wisdom and compassion, as these are the two most important elements of the path to enlightenment—like two wings of a bird!
Each session will include teaching, meditation, and time for discussion/Q-A.
There will be material for beginners and more advanced students too.
