Understanding the Buddhist Spiritual Path

This is a new course designed for students who have done some introductory courses and now want to go more deeply. This course provides a bridge for students who are considering becoming a Rigpa Melbourne student/subscriber.  The course includes time to watch short teachings, with time for questions and answers in a small group setting. The course will work through the following topics:

  • The Four Noble Truths
  • The three wisdom tools
  • Rigpa - its history, structure, and the spiritual tradition and lineage it belongs to
  • What does it mean to be a Rigpa student and have devotion in a western context?
  • What is the role of the teacher and the lineage?
  • What does taking refuge mean?
  • What is bodhichitta?
  • What is Vajrayana?

Course fees are $195 full/$90 concession.  Please note that the pricelessness of the teachings is not reflected in the course fees. The fees have been set to make the teachings affordable and accessible to all.  If you have any questions or concerns about affordability, please do not hesitate to contact Jenny on 0414 580 749 or by emailing Jenny at melbourne@rigpa.org.au
