• Completing the Level II Course, students are empowered to delve deeper into their study of Tibetan using various TLI reader/translation workbooks. As with previous courses, the group reads and studies a Classical Tibetan text such as the Heart Sutra in conjunction with the study of The Divine Tree Grammar Poem and Commentary. With Lama David as your experienced guide, we will study in an integrated manner to learn more about Tibetan grammar and vocabulary, as well as about Tibetan Buddhism.
  • Become a better reader of Tibetan and engage more deeply with authentic Dharma teachings. Although written a thousand years ago by Kadampa spiritual mentor Geshe Langri Thangpa, the 8 Verses remains a brilliant lojong teaching that speaks right to our hearts in these challenging times. This a teaching that is still enthusiastically embraced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. It has been taught by the 14th Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and most recently by Anam Thubten Rinpoche. Our workbook also has additional 4-line verses from various texts having to do with compassionate development of bodhicitta (the Heart of Awakening): a prayer from the Green Tara Sadhana, a verse from chapter 9 of Shantideva’s Engaging in the Conduct of the Bodhisattva, and a prayer from the Chenrezig Sadhana.
  • An excellent resource for developing your translation skills in Tibetan.
  • Composed in the 8th century, this text becomes richer and richer with each reading--it combines those rare qualities of scholastic precision, spiritual depth, and poetical beauty.
  • Chapter 3 directly addresses bodhicitta—this altruistic aspiration. The purpose of this workbook is to provide beginning reading students with a better idea of what is being said in Tibetan and to see how the Tibetan is structured. Delve into this most important Tibetan text.
