Description: The practice of compassion and an understanding of emptiness are essential to progress on the Buddhist path and eventually attaining complete enlightenment. Chandrakirti’s Entry to the Middle Way is considered one of the most important text for explaining the essence of the relationship between compassion and the meaning of emptiness from the Madhyamika- Prasangika view. More specifically, this text explains the meaning of emptiness in relation to the practice of compassion and a practitioner’s progression along the levels of Bodhisattva training in the ten perfections (far-reaching virtues). Recently, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama gave an overview of this important text in three-day webcast teachings. During this weekend intensive, Geshe-la will provide a more detail explanation of key points of this important text and provide guidance in how to apply these profound teachings to one’s practice. This teaching is excellent for both newcomers and more experienced students. For newcomers, it will provide the foundation for a basic understanding of key points of study and practice within Tibetan Buddhism. And for more experienced student, the teachings will serve to refine one’s understanding of the deeper levels of the relationship between compassion and emptiness.
