Dear Westchester Buddhist Center Community,
We will soon be starting the next installment of our course on Buddhist doctrine, working through Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, which is a condensation of teachings given by Rinpoche over the thirteen years he taught the Vajradhatu Seminary, a three-month annual program of study and practice for committed students.
Trungpa Rinpoche based much of his teachings on the encyclopedic Treasury of Knowledge by the great 19th Century Tibetan teacher, Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye, who was the previous incarnation of Rinpoche’s own root guru, Jamgön Kongtrul of Sechen.
We will complete Volume One on the Hinayana stage of the Path on March 9th and will begin Volume Two on the Mahayana stage on the following Sunday, March 16th. We expect to take 12 weeks to complete the course.
These teachings are profound, vast and complete. They complement and deepen our meditation practice, and they also prepare us for the more advanced teachings of the Vajrayana.
This course is open to student with sufficient background in practice and study, acquired either with the Westchester Buddhist Center or with other teachers or groups. If you are interested, please contact John or Derek to obtain approval to participate.
The course will meet on Sundays at the Eileen Fisher Headquarters, 2 Bridge Street, Irvington, from 12:15 – 2:15 pm.
Suggested donation: $200. If you have financial concerns, please feel free to give what you wish.
