BUDDHIST ONLINE STUDIES WITH JAKOB LESCHLY

Thursdays, March 5 to April 9
7.30pm - 8.30pm AEDT (utc+11:00)

An Online Study of Trungpa Rinpoche's The Future is Open. 
Karma has become a popular term in the West, often connected with somewhat naive or deterministic ideas of rebirth and reincarnation. It is also often equated with views of morality and guilt. In The Future Is Open, Chögyam Trungpa unpacks this intriguing but misunderstood topic. He viewed an understanding of karma as good news, showing us that liberation is possible and that the future is never predetermined. His unique approach to presenting the Buddhist teachings lends itself to an insightful and profound view of karma, its cause and effects, and how to cut the root of karma itself.

Practical aspects of online courses:
Students are requested to read sections of the text prior to the scheduled class. During the session Jakob unpacks and summarizes the text using a live PowerPoint presentation which is visible on the participant's computer. This format enables anyone to participate regardless of location.

Participants also have an option to download both audio and video recordings of the lesson if they are unable to join in real-time.

Participants may review and download any session as often as required.
