FREE Buddhist Teachings – Seven Vajra Points: Uttaratantra – Asanga, Term 4 (IN PERSON OR ONLINE)

A Course on Mahayana Buddhist Philosophy - As a special initiative this course will be offered for FREE this term. Please note that this class will ONLY be held online this term.


About this course:

Uttaratantra is one of the main textbooks studied in Tibetan monasteries as it deals with seven key universal Mahayana Buddhist teachings.

Uttaratantra is not a Tantric text as the title may suggest. It is one of the five major texts mythically attributed to Maitreya but primarily codified by Asanga. Rongton Sheja Kunrig (1367-1449) is one of the earliest Tibetan commentator on all five texts.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche, who heard teaching on this text from the late Khenpo Khedrup in Lumbini in 1974, will be teaching on the basis of Rongton’s commentary to a world wide audience through our online teachings initiative.  

This course will go on for all four terms and this is the first term of this series. Each term has eight sessions. All who are interested to attend this term are required to register. Once you register, material for this course will be sent to you prior to the course. These teachings are offered free of charge but your generous donation will greatly assist to offer these teachings for the benefit of all.  

These classes are suitable for everyone, regardless of your religious interest. There are no prerequisites for attendance - it is fine to join the classes throughout the year.

Special Note: Sakya Losal Choe Dzong will offer this course for free, but you are encouraged to offer a donation and or become a benefactor for our course(s) so that we can offer teachings more widely and freely.
