Advanced Studies in Buddhism

This course is for students with an advanced knowledge of Buddhism, who are looking to deepen their faith and practice. The topic for this semester is the Bodhisattva Path and giving rise to the Bodhi mind. Starting with the Four Universal Vows, their meanings and their applications to our own lives, we will then examine the aspects which define a Bodhisattva’s character, including the Four Immeasurable States of Mind, the Four Means of Embracing, and the Six Paramitas. We will examine the various stages of cultivation along the Bodhisattva Path, including the Ten Levels of Faith, Dwelling, and Grounding, and the Three Aspects of Practice. Open discussions and lectures will be held about applying these different facets of the Bodhisattva mindset to our own lives and individual circumstances as we travel the path to become Bodhisattvas ourselves.
