Teachings on the three yanas, or vehicles, which are the three levels of training taught by Lord Buddha, and which are practiced as a unity in Tibetan Buddhism. There will be special instructions on how to deal with negative emotions through the methods presented in the different vehicles. Traditionally these are Hinayaya, the path of letting go, Mahayana, the path of transformation, and Vajrayana, the path of pure perception.
We will explore how the three yanas are practiced together in the Tibetan tradition, and there will be teachings on subjects such as renunciation and the Four Noble Truths, compassion and the Six Paramitas, and Buddha Nature and the visualisation of deities. There will also be teachings on the importance of lineage and following an authentic tradition under the guidance of one’s teachers.
From January 2015 all our Dharma and meditation courses will be offered without a suggested course fee.
In the Buddhist tradition one practices generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma.
