About the Event:
This class is usually on a Thursday evening at 6.30pm starting Thursday 2nd May to Thursday 25th July 2019
(Autumn/ Winter Term 12th September to 19th December)
This class is open to members of the public
This class is led by Roy Sutherwood who is a senior student of Geshi Tashi of Jamyang Buddhist Centre. The class begins with a meditation, followed by the presentation and discussion of a philosophical topic. For the current 2015/2016 session the class is exploring the traditional Tibetan teachings on the Gradual Path to Enlightenment (Lam Rim). For Buddhists, Enlightenment is not some vague esoteric idea but a precise and attainable goal and success in the achievement of it, like success in any venture, depends upon following the steps laid out by those who have already attained it. These teachings will be presented, discussed and meditated upon in the traditional sequence, as methods for investigating and transforming one’s attitudes, developing positive qualities and striving to realise Enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings.
These classes are free and open to non-members but students are encouraged to join The Society as members to support our wonderful free classes and courses and donations very welcome.
