This course is recommended for both beginning and advanced students Realizing that the suffering nature of existence is the result of the power of delusions, one generates the wish for freedom from ignorance, attachment, and aversion, known as renunciation. Realizing that all sentient beings wish for happiness, yet in confusion create the causes of more suffering, one generates the wish to develop great compassion (Bodhichitta), in order to help lead all beings to the complete freedom of enlightenment. Having realized that cyclic existence is of the nature of suffering, that all beings are worthy of Buddhahood, and that to realize Buddha-hood one must uproot the causes of suffering, one directs one's mind toward penetrating the ultimate nature of existence. This realization of the union of the two truths of relative and ultimate reality is known as wisdom. It is these three, Renunciation, The Mind of Enlightenment, and Wisdom that are The Three Principle Aspects of the Path, which serves as a foundation for understanding the philosophy and practice of all the Sutra and Tantra. In this Weekend Teaching Ven, Tenzin Gechey will explain the Three Principle Aspects of the Path and how to practice them in our daily lives.
