Adelaide Seminars: Bedrock of the Path
Seminars with Jakob Leschly
The Bedrock of the Path: For our practice of Dharma to be effective, we need on one hand to have a clear vision of where we’re going, and on the other how we actually are going to do this. Friday is for anyone interested in wisdom and love, the key themes of Buddhism. Saturday will offer a clear and understandable presentation of the Buddha’s teaching on the basic goodness that is innate to us, while the Sunday will present how this is integrated through meditation and everyday life.
Friday 13 March 6.30 pm-8 pm
- The Buddhist View and Practice of Wisdom and Compassion (Evening talk)
For anyone interested in the Buddhist view on the nature of our existence, and its vision of the basic goodness and workability of our lives. This introduction intends to be a down-to-earth presentation of a timeless science of mind, free of jargon or mysticism.
Saturday 14 March 10 am-4 pm
- Establishing the View of the Middle Way (Seminar)
In recognising the sanity and brilliance that is basic to us all, the Buddha sought to free us from self-imposed limitations. The Middle Way or Madhyamaka teaching is the key to the quiet simplicity of such wisdom. This vision is the indispensable foundation of the path of enlightenment.
Sunday 15 March 10 am-4 pm
- Integrating the Practice of the Middle Way in Samadhi and Everyday Life (Seminar)
The simplicity of the Middle Way view shows a remedy for the confused and unnecessary struggle of our mind, but it needs to be applied and integrated as a living experience - first through the practice of meditation, and then through integration in our ordinary lives.
