TOPIC: Knowledge and Awareness

A central aim in Buddhist philosophy and practice is understanding the nature of mind.  Toward this end, Indian and Tibetan, scholars and masters developed a comprehensive system in the study of mind that details various aspects of cognition and mental functions associated with knowledge and awareness. The goal of this system of study within Buddhism is to enable students to analyze, contemplate and meditate on the nature of knowledge and awareness in a deeper, more intimate way. Alongside this study of knowledge and awareness, Buddhist scholars and masters also developed a systematic set of rules for logical reasoning to be used in the analysis of phenomena and the practice of debate.  The practices of analytical meditation and debate enable students to strengthen their skills in logical reasoning and thereby their understanding of knowledge and awareness, and the nature of mind.  During this weekend intensive, Geshe-la will provide students with an introduction to the essential elements of lorig (knowledge and awareness) and tarig (signs and reasoning) and how these can be used to deepen one’s understanding of and meditation on the nature of mind. This is a rare opportunity to receive a teaching on these important topics in Buddhist philosophy and practice.

Geshe Lobsang Dhondup was born on the 15th of August 1974 in Orissa, India.  He studied in the local primary school to the age of twelve.  Geshe Lobsang Dhondup joined Sera Mey Monastery in Bylakuppe, South India where began his basic monastic education including Tibetan grammar and script, memorization of Buddhist scriptures.
