Bellingen Seminar - Finding the Middle Way

Date:
9 - 11 April 2021
At:
Bellingen

Finding the Middle Way (Madhyamaka Without Tears)

Believing things exist the way they appear to our confused mind is our downfall, leading to us misunderstanding reality, and leading to our suffering. Yet, this confusing condition is workable, and the Buddha encouraged us to critically investigate our assumptions which ultimately leads to a grand vista of openness, the middle way beyond our beliefs, dogmas, and doctrines. This insight is the foundation for the vision and path of the bodhisattva sages.
