Announcing the next course in our Introduction to Buddhism Series
Karma, Rebirth and Selflessness
Wednesdays, October 12 through November 2
Curious about Buddhism? What are the basic teachings in Buddhism? What is the cause of suffering and discontentment? What is the path that leads to peace, happiness, and freedom from suffering?
Nalandabodhi Colorado is offering a series of talks and courses on foundational Buddhist topics. The introductory courses in the Nalandabodhi Path of Study explore the basic principles of Buddhism. You will learn about the Four Noble Truths, karma, egolessness, the purpose of mindfulness practices, and the path that leads to peace, happiness, and freedom from suffering and discontentment. The courses also lay the foundation for deeper studies.
There are 4 courses in the series. Each course runs for 4 weeks. The third course starts Wednesday, October 12. It is Intro-103 in the Nalandaabodhi study curriculum. Although helpful, you do not need to take the courses in sequence. So, you are welcome to our third course even it you missed the first one.
We will cover these major topics:
Four Seals of the Buddha’s Teaching I – Impermanence, Suffering
The Four Seals of the Buddha’s Teaching II – No self, Freedom
The Four Reminders
The Spiritual Friend: Connecting with Buddha’s Heart
The courses are based on talks by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, a contemporary Tibetan teacher. The courses are facilitated by senior students.
All are welcome! These classes may be attended as a course or on a drop- in basis. Discussions are led by senior students of Nalandabodhi Colorado. Each class will start with a short guided meditation.
The course will be offered online, via Zoom. Please register (below) in advance to receive the Zoom link
