The Hinayana Path and Fruition (HIN 202)

Mon., May 18, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“Buddhism is a journey into the depths of one’s heart and mind, the inner reality of one’s essence, an exploration of who we are and what we are. This spiritual journey is nothing more and nothing less than discovering this inner reality.”

— Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

Buddhism is not a religion in the usual sense of the word. It is a method of investigation that allows you to work skillfully with the positive potentials and negative energies of your own mind. The teachings of the Hinayana represent the most fundamental instructions of the Buddha, which are central to everything that follows. Hinayana studies, therefore, are basic to any training in Buddhism.

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 continues for one year, divided into two courses:

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

The second course in the series, Hinayana Path and Fruition, shows you how the view is applied through the practices of the Hinayana path, where you will explore techniques of mindfulness, concentration, and insight.

The class will be offered as a webcast with access to the recorded classes.

Please register and you will receive the Zoom meeting link for the class.
