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 Realizations (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 Realizations. 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 Realizations "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 Realizations.

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

Long-time dharma student and member, Pat Venter, will begin a new cycle of Reiki courses on Saturday, June 22

Reiki, an ancient hands-on healing art that originated from the east, is a universal life force that transcends time and space. This class is filled with teaching, sharing, reflections, and learning about how to effectively use simple methods to assist in healing self, others, animals, and the planet. We will explore our interconnectedness with the Reiki energy (chi) and tap into that source with attunement, symbols, and meditation.

Requirement: Must attend both days. (Participants will receive a certificate)

Demonstrations and practices will apply. It is helpful, but not required, to bring a stuffed animal to class. A light lunch will be provided on Saturday and snacks on Sunday

For more information and to register please call Pat Venter at (617) 298 8576 or email us at reiki@kurukulla.org by June 16.

Requested donation is $70. The proceeds will benefit the Center
