The Chenrezig text will be the focus of this course. The aim is to enable the students to understand the word-by-word meaning of the text and become proficient in reading it, so they can start to use the Tibetan language for their own Dharma practice. The text is available in the shop.
This 10 week course runs on the following dates: Jan 19; Jan 26; Feb 2; Feb 9; Feb 16; Feb 23; March 1; March 8; March 15; March 22.
Tibetan is one of the four major languages for students of Buddhism, along with Sanskrit, Pali, and Chinese. Learning the Tibetan language is therefore an important gateway which opens the door to the treasure-house of the Dharma, eventually providing a deeper understanding of the Buddhist texts and teachings.
Class dates are: 19 Jan: 26 Jan: 2 Feb: 9 Feb:16 Feb: 23 Feb: 1 March: 8 March: 15 march & ending 22 March 2024.
