For over a thousand years, the people of Tibet have preserved a unique form of Buddhism that was originally taught and practiced in ancient India. The hallmark of the Tibetan tradition is a systematic approach to meditation, spiritual study, and ethical living embodied in the “three vehicles” of Buddhism: the Foundational Vehicle, Great Vehicle, and Vajra Vehicle. These three vehicles teach basic Buddhist principles like non-violence, impermanence, and interdependence, as well as profound meditations that lead to an experience of the dream-like nature of reality and the open-hearted intention to help all beings achieve enlightenment. This seminar explores these traditions, providing an overview of the rich history, philosophy, and meditative traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
In this six-class seminar, we will explore the rich history, philosophy, and meditative traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. The first two classes will focus on the history of Tibet and the development of the four main lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. In the third and fourth classes, we will discuss the practical philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism and the four schools of thought that form the core of its philosophical traditions. In the final two classes, we will explore the main forms of meditation practiced in Tibet, paying special attention to Path of Liberation teachings taught by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche.
