Hinayana 202 – The Hinayana Path and Fruition, 2021

Wed., March 3, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Nalandabodhi Seattle (Nalanda West)

Wednesdays, 7 to 8:30 pm     March 3 – April 14, 2021

Class will be facilitated by Kris Shaw

In the Nalandabodhi Path of Study, Hinayana studies introduce you to Buddhism as a science of mind, or method of investigation. Your study of the Hinayana is divided into two courses:

The first course (HIN 201) covers the ground or view of Hinayana, and this is second course in the series (HIN 202) covering the Hinayana path and its results.

In this time of uncertainty it seems fitting to look to the Path for dealing with suffering, adverse conditions, fear and also explore the Fruition of the Path.

In the Hinayana View class we looked at the constituent parts of our existence and our attitudes toward them, much like how an architect would look at the site and materials in planning a building.  In this class we will begin to lay the actual foundation for bringing this view into our practice and into our daily lives. This foundation is the crucial support needed for continuing into Mahayana and Vajrayana. The future quality of Vajrayana and Mahayana practice will be enhanced and rely on our efforts here.

We will examine what it means to take refuge, what it means to develop discipline, samadhi or meditation and prajna or insight.  We will have analytical meditation practicums on Shamatha, Vipashyana and the four reminders. The 37 factors of enlightenment will include the four correct efforts and the four powers. These all will be covered in practical and useful ways to enhance your daily practice. This is a how to do it class, it is how we bring the vision into life.
