FPMT Basic Program – Ornament for Clear Realizations

June 2 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

|Recurring Events (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until June 16, 2021


Maitreya’s Ornament for Clear Realization is the root text for the study of the levels
of realization related to enlightenment according to the Madhyamaka school. This
important scripture, traditionally the basis for extensive study in the monastic
curriculum, made explicit these levels which were otherwise presented in only a
hidden manner in the Buddha’s Perfection of Wisdom teachings.

The eleven topics have been selected for commentary in the Basic Program curriculum.

These texts describe what happens in the mind of a bodhisattva who meditates on emptiness,

making it a living experience from the beginner’s stage up through buddhahood.

Geshe La will lead us to a course of 17 weeks of these precious topics every Wednesday except

public holidays. The program will take place till the 16th of June 2021 of this term. Please see the

course registration below. This course is for intermediate and advanced students to register. Please email

meditate@chandrakirti.co.nz for any questions. All welcome to drop in to experience any of the teachings as a trial.

$240 investment for the whole term.
