Hinayana View Course Starts January 21


6 Tuesday evenings January 21 to February 25 2020
7:00 to 8:30 pm

Scott Wellenbach and Katherine Munro

The Hinayana, also known as the “foundational vehicle,” is the basis of entering the path as taught in the Vajrayana Buddhist traditions. The teachings of the Hinayana represent the most fundamental instructions of the Buddha, which are central to everything that follows. Hinayana studies, therefore, are basic to any training in Buddhism

In this stage of study and contemplation, we take a courageous look at our personal unease and suffering, as well as our comfort and happiness. By working with these experiences, we learn how to step away from confusion and toward truly helping ourselves and others. You will learn the main elements of the Hinayana view, through a detailed examination of the building blocks of the Buddhist science of mind.
