Vajrayana 403 — Mahamudra

Mahabodhi Room

Vajrayana Buddhism is the innermost essence of the Mahayana teachings of the Buddha.  In order to have a proper understanding and realization in Vajrayana practice, you need to rely on the genuine knowledge and wisdom of the view, meditation and conduct of the three yanas.

The Vajrayana courses in the Nalandabodhi Path of Study focus on the view of Vajrayana, introducing you to the different levels of the Vajrayana path as well as Mahamudra and Dzogchen. For the actual practice of the Vajrayana, it is necessary to study with your own Vajrayana master.

This is a series of four courses.

Course fees:

  • Students taking a course for the first time: $40 per course
  • Students repeating a course: $20 per course
  • Sliding scale contribution:   $5 to $35 per course

 

These courses are restricted to full Nalandabodhi members who have finished the Introduction, Hinayana and Mahayana courses and have started their Ngondro practice.
