Wednesday Evening Classes with Geshe Tenley: Commentary on Je Tsongkhapa's In Praise of Dependent Origination
Posted Jun 09 2018 11:00:00am

Wednesday Evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

NOTE: No class Wednesday, June 13. Class will resume June 20.

In Praise of Dependent Origination by Je Tsongkhapa is considered to be one of the most profound works in Tibetan Buddhism. It addresses the relationship between emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality, and dependent origination, the realization that things do not exist independently from other factors such as causes and conditions. It is said that Je Tsongkhapa composed this poetic text the very morning that he attained the realization of the unity of emptiness and dependent origination.

The study of dependent origination is considered the "king of logic," enabling us to understand how the doctrine of emptiness is compatible with our common experience of the world.
