Wednesday Evening Classes with Geshe Tenley: Mind and Mental Factors
Posted Mar 09 2017 03:00:00pm

Wednesday Evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

The study of Mind and Cognition (Lorig) is subdivided into two main parts: Minds and Mental Factors, and Awarenesses and Knowers.

In contrast to Awarenesses and Knowers, which investigates how the mind knows, this subject focuses on the states that color and control the mind, known as the 51 mental factors. Based on one of the earliest systematizations of the Buddha's teachings, this practical guide offers us a key to identifying and cultivating positive attitudes that lead to peace and well-being.

This class is suitable for all levels of students and for anyone interested in learning more about the mind, whether you consider yourself a Buddhist or not.

You can download a copy of the root text or e-mail spc@kurukulla.org if you would like a hard copy.
