"Buddhism is a way of life through which we develop the qualities of our mind. This way of life is very unusual, as it is a means to attain happiness without harming others.THE 17th GYALWA KARMAPA
Saturday, May 6–Monday, May 8
Meeting The Masters
“One explains that all that is produced through interdependence is emptiness; This is designated as dependently existingAnd this itself is the Middle Way”
Excerpt from The Fundamental Stances of the Middle Way (Mûlamadhyamakakarika), by Nagarjuna (2nd – 3rd century CE)
This text presents emptiness in 27 chapters. Each chapter examines an aspect of reality, such as movement, the aggregates, or dependent origination, and refutes the truly existing nature of each aspect. Trinlay Rinpoche continues his commentary of the text from last year in order to introduce us the profound meaning of emptiness.
Trinlay Rinpoche was recognized as a tulku, or manifestation of a Buddhist master by the 16th Karmapa (1923-1981). He is among the rare tulkus born in the West and his dual culture makes him an exceptional teacher.
