The Three Volume Profound Treasury texts present Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's teaching on the hinayana, mahayana, and vajrayana in a unique way, joining traditional Buddhist concepts with contemplative, experiential understanding, in vivid language which is as fresh today as when it was first taught.

The Path of Individual Liberation presents the Hinayana, the core Buddhist teachings on the practice of meditation, the reality of suffering, and the possibility of liberation.

Join us for the next 6-week Profound Treasury module exploring the practitioner’s transition from the Hinayana to the Mahayana Path.  Topics include the three marks of existence, karma, cutting ego fixation, one and a half-fold and twofold egolessness, emptiness, relative and absolute truth, and the discovery of Buddha nature. The class format will be facilitated discussion, closely tied to passages in the readings from the Profound Treasury texts. 

One does not need to have attended previous Profound Treasury study groups to join this class, but a solid meditation practice is a recommended pre-requisite.  The expectation is that students will actively engage in the topics and complete each reading assignment prior to the class discussion.
