Dongsung Shabdrung Rinpoche – Introduction to the Middle Way – online course
07/05/2022 10:00 - 08/05/2022 12:00
With this course Dongsang Shabdrung Rinpoche continues his cycle of teachings about the important buddhist text: ‚Introduction to the Middle Way’ of the great Indian master Chandrakirti. Although this is a very profound text about the proper understanding of the buddhist term ’emptiness’, which is not easy to comprehend without instructions, Shabdrung Rinpoche explains it in the best way for us to access these profound teachings. While our understanding deepens, slowly our inner confusions can be clarified. We are going through chapter 6 of the above mentioned book right now and while we were looking at the emptiness of phenomena last time, we will now have a look at the emptiness of the self.
Attending this online course is also possible without having attended the former courses.
The 4th Dongsang Shabdrung Rinpoche, known for his vast knowledge, was recognized as an emanation of Sangye Yeshe (832 – 902), one of the 25 heart disciples of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche). He belongs to the lineage of the Sakyapa, but he has also received transmissions from some of the most important masters of different schools, such as Thaye Dorje, H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa. Rinpoche is the main teacher in the Dongtsang monastery in China. His teachings impress and inspire due to his special clarity and joyful appearance.
