Foundations of Tibetan Buddhism

Foundations of Tibetan Buddhism


Course Overview

For over a thousand years, the people of Tibet have preserved a unique form of Buddhism that was originally taught and practiced in ancient India. The hallmark of the Tibetan tradition is a graded approach to meditation, spiritual study, and ethical living embodied in the "three vehicles" of Buddhism: the Foundational Vehicle, the Great Vehicle, and the Vajra Vehicle. In Tibetan Buddhism, these three vehicles are practiced as one unified system. In this course, we will explore the rich history, philosophy, and meditative traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and its three yana spiritual path.
