Sunday February 25th 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This weekend intensive can be taken to fulfill the requirements of Discovering Buddhism module 1: “Mind and Its Potential”.
Discovering Buddhism is a 14-part curriculum from the Education Department of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), the organization with which Dharmakaya Center is affiliated.
People who attend all five sessions this weekend and complete the readings (which can be done later) will be eligible to receive a completion card for this course.
Topics covered in this course include:
· The nature of mind
· Our experience of the world
· The continuity of consciousness
· Our potential for enlightenment
· Buddhist Psychology
"The nature of the mind is such that if certain mental qualities are developed on a sound basis, they not only remain, but they also increase. In fact, once properly developed, the mind's good qualities eventually increase indefinitely. Therefore spiritual practice brings us long-term happiness and inner strength."
