​​Tenets is the study of the various Buddhist philosophical schools that developed in India, based on the Buddha’s teachings. Like a skillful doctor, the Buddha would explain the nature of things in different ways to people of differing mental capacities and dispositions, but the purpose of all these teachings is to help sentient beings become free of suffering and its causes, and attain genuine happiness, liberation, and enlightenment. In this course, we will study a short text on Tenets by Jetsun Chökyi Gyeltsen, textbook writer of Sera-je Monastic College, supplemented by material from other sources.
