Join us for the next 7-week Profound Treasury module exploring the essence of the Mahayana Path - Emptiness and Compassion.  The Profound Treasury texts present Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's remarkable teachings in a way that joins traditional Buddhist concepts with contemplative, experiential understanding, in vivid language which is as fresh today as when they were first taught.

Topics for this Mahayana session will include Ultimate and Relative Bodhicitta, Cultivating a Mahayana Mentality, and an extensive exploration of Chӧgyam Trungpa’s teachings on Emptiness. The class format will be facilitated discussion, closely tied to passages in the readings from the Profound Treasury texts.  This complete study of these chapters in the Mahayana volume has not been previously offered in Boston.

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.
