Manjushri Empowerment with Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel

Sept. 14 (Wednesday) 7:30 PM

RSVP to teachings@compassionbuddha.org

 

Manjushri is the embodiment of the great wisdom of highest enlightenment. His right hand holds a flaming sword, which represents the sharpness of wisdom that cuts through the root cause of suffering and the net of wrong views which binds us to the three lower realms. The flame on the sword signifies the dispelling of the darkness of ignorance by the light of Wisdom.

 

Manjushri’s left hand holds a magnificent blue lotus flower in full bloom, on which rests the Prajnaparamita Sutra (Great Wisdom Sutra). The lotus in full bloom represents the promise from Manjushri that we can rise from the mud of delusion and afflictive emotions if we follow the teachings of the Buddha. Then ultimately, through actualizing and meditating on the Great Wisdom Sutra, attain Full Enlightenment.

Presentation of Tenets

Tenzin Chophel Rinpoche

Sept. 25 (Sundays) 3-4:45 pm

Watch online on www.livestream.com/lcb


Based on the idea that the Buddha taught different things to different people according to their capacities, Tibetan scholars systematized the numerous trends in Indian Buddhist thought into four schools of Tenets. Each system is seen as a stepping stone to the next, thus providing a gradual approach to the most profound philosophical teachings.


Chophel Rinpoche will teach from the Presentation of Tenets, composed by the renowned scholar and yogi, Jetsün Chökyi Gyaltsen. It is a concise and accessible introduction to the four main schools of Buddhist tenets giving an overview of the assertions on minds, objects, selflessness, and the nature of attainment within each of the schools. From the coarsest view of the Great Exposition, we will move through increasingly subtle views until we arrive at the most subtle one: that of the Middle Way Consequence School (Madhyamika Prasangika).
