Way of the Bodhisattva, Ch 10
With David Curtis
THURSDAYS April 4 - May 23, 2019
An 8-week Course by Teleconference Call
Insight into the spiritual language and culture heritage of Tibet
Learning is the treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. −Chinese Proverb
This course is continuation of the course we started in the winter. It's open to anyone who has taken our Level II.
Students will continue their study of Tibetan using TLI’s new Selections from Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara: Engaging in the Conduct of the Bodhisattva, Verses from Chapter 10, the Dedication. The workbook contains selections from the beautiful and profound 10th Chapter of the Way of the Bodhisattva.
You are welcome to join the course, even if you have not taken the first part of the course.
It is also not necessary to be an expert reader to benefit from this course. David will spell and discuss each word. He will supplement the reading with the Divine Tree Grammar Poem, giving you the opportunity to deepen the understanding of Tibetan grammar. And of course, if you have to miss class that is not a problem as telephone recordings are available for each class for one month after the class.
