Thursdays, January 25 – April 11

Maitreya’s Ornament for Clear Realization is the root text for the study of the levels of realization related to enlightenment according to the Madhyamaka school. Traditionally the basis for extensive study in the monastic curriculum, it makes explicit these levels that were otherwise presented in only a hidden manner in the Buddha’s Perfection of Wisdom teachings.
From among the seventy topics covered by the Ornament, the eleven topics of chapter four have been selected for commentary in the FPMT Basic Program curriculum.
