Ornament for Clear Realisations – Basic Program ( FPMT )

Geshe La will continue to teach where we left from last term but if you wish to study this module please contact us and we can get you started,

you  will get to learn the topics that will be taught.

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.

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.

This course is for intermediate and advanced students to register. Contact us if you wish to join and do not have experience. 

We can assist to get you started.

Please email meditate@chandrakirti.co.nz  for any questions.

All welcome to drop in to experience any of the teachings as a trial.

You can sign up for the whole term! 16 weeks course.
