...Cycle: Understanding Karma – Course 5

Saturday, March 4 and Sunday, March 5                                                                                                             STUDY     

 

Karma is a difficult reality to apprehend. To help us understand, the Buddha explained the causes and consequences of numerous situations through various stories. Each story clarifies the results of acts, whether they be of body, speech, or mind. Through this, we can see that Buddhist ethic is not comprised of obligations and prohibitions but rests on choices founded on the very process of reality. Khenpo Lekshe bases his teaching on the Sutra of the Foundation of the Vinaya, which describes the characteristics of karma and illustrates this idea with stories told by the Buddha.

Cycle : Understanding Karma

Karma is a difficult reality to apprehend. To deepen our understanding of this term, we have invited two Khenpos (the title of Khenpo is equivalent to a doctorate in Buddhist philosophy) to teach on the subject. They base their teaching on the Sutra of the Foundation of the Vinaya, which explains in detail the characteristics of karma and illustrates this idea with stories told by the Buddha. These stories concretely show the results of actions. This shows us that Buddhist ethic is not made up of obligations and restrictions, but relies on a set of choices based on the functioning of reality itself.

We recommend following the cycle in its entirety. Nonetheless, it is possible to follow a portion of the courses proposed.

Course 1: October 15 and 16
