Meditation on Emptiness by Lama Marut

Scroll to the last 14 minutes of this lecture for a great meditation on the emptiness of the self.  This is from the same lecture listed below; I highly recommend it.  We will do this meditation together this week.  With gratitude!

Dharma Class this Week: Wisdom

Join us as we continue our study of Wisdom in Chapter 9 in Master Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life.  As Lama Marut says, we'll practice learning to "pierce through the veil" which hides ultimate reality.  We'll examine ways in which we misinterpret the world around us, assigning permanence to that which is impermanent, and self-existence to that which has no fixed existence, thus create suffering for ourselves and others.  But just as this way of seeing the world has become habit, so can a view which is more liberating, more healing, and more aligned with ultimate reality become our mode of interacting with the world.

We'll use the same worksheet as last week (9.1, listed below).  To brush up on the topics, please listen to "The Clock Teaching" by Geshe Michael Roach, and "Simple words about Emptiness" listed below.  See you on Wednesday and Friday!
