Also known as the “foundational vehicle,” Hinayana is the basis of entering the path as taught in the Vajrayana Buddhist traditions. In this stage of study and contemplation, we take a courageous look at our personal unease and suffering, as well as our comfort and happiness. By working with these experiences, we learn how to step away from confusion and toward truly helping ourselves and others.
Core curriculum materials are drawn primarily from the teachings of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, who also designed the curriculum.
$50 per person for NB members, $60 for non-members.
