Introduction to the Path of the Mahayana
November 15 @ 7:45 pm - 9:00 pm
The Mahayana is a major school of Buddhism that emphasizes the bodhisattva path of compassion and wisdom. If you are interested in learning more about the Mahayana path, we will be studying “Letter to a Friend” by Nāgārjuna. Nāgārjuna’s advice provides a succinct and comprehensive introduction to the entire path and practice of Mahayana Buddhism. It guides both laypeople and ordained individuals on the path to liberation and enlightenment. The instructions are particularly relevant to those who want to engage in spiritual activity while continuing to live and work in society. Nāgārjuna’s advice is meant to convey the whole meaning of the Dharma to the average person in a language and style that is simple to understand.
This class will be in-person with an online option.
