The Eight Categories and Seventy Topics with Geshe Tenley
Posted May 04 2019 09:00:00am

Wednesday Evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

On Wednesday evenings Geshe Tenley will be teaching Jetsun Chokyi Gyaltsen's The Eight Categories and Seventy Topics (don bdun cu), a concise presentation of the eight categories and seventy topics discussed in Maitreya's Ornament of Clear Realization (Sanskrit - Abhisamayalamkara, Tibetan - mNgon rtogs rgyan).

At Sera Je Monastery, The Seventy Topics is an essential prerequisite to the in-depth study of the Ornament of Clear Realization. To put this into perspective it is explained that the Prajnaparamita texts include both explicit teachings on the emptiness of inherent existence of phenomena, as well as hidden, or indirect, teachings on the path system that leads to the proper understanding and realization of emptiness.

The Ornament of Clear Realization "brings to the surface those hidden teachings" and explains the path system in its entirety. In turn, The Seventy Topics provides the basis for studying and correctly understanding the Ornament of Clear Realization.

There will be copies of the root text available for sale or you can download the electronic copy.


Homework: You can find the homework for the class in this Google Doc. This is optional and not required to join the class.
