This course is taught by senior monk, Venerable Steve Carlier (Thubten Sherab), who is fluent in Tibetan and works from the original Tibetan texts to prepare these classes.
After a quick overview of Buddhist tenets, we are now returning to the main text, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Middle-Length Lam-Rim, to learn more about Special Insight. Specifically, we pick up at the section on phenomena. His Holiness the Dalai Lama explains, in How to See Yourself as You Really Are:
Reflecting on how an object is a dependent-arising – arising dependent on causes and conditions, dependent upon its parts, and dependent on thought – greatly helps to overcome the sense that it exists in and of itself. However, if you do not figure out exactly what phenomena are empty of – what is being negated – then at the end of this analysis you will feel that the object does not exist at all.
Come find out what this means.
