Nitartha presents BUD 630 Buddha Nature

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

BUD 630 Buddha Nature:
Luminous Heart of the Tathagata

Course Description: This course is an overview of the Tathagatagarbha, or Buddha Nature tradition, the view of the luminous essence of awakening, the heart of goodness shared by all beings. Our exploration will rely on the key section of Uttaratantra of Maitreya (ca. 4th century) which establishes Buddha nature through three reasonings, its ten facets, nine analogies and five reasons why it is necessary to teach it.

Prerequisite: Though any student may take any intermediate course at any time, it is recommended that students complete the Foundation Curriculum before beginning the Intermediate Curriculum, then take all four intermediate courses in order. BUD 630 Buddha Nature is the last course in the Intermediate Curriculum.

Instructor: Mitra Karl Brunnhölzl
