SHEDRA CLASS & MEDITATION ongoing Tuesday evening curriculum.
Current class text:   "Maitreya's  The Uttaratantra-A Treatise on Buddha-Essence" commentary by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche.  We are studying the 5th Vajra Topic, "Enlightenment."  Rather than predetermining an end to this topic, we will continue until Rinpoche feels students fully understand the topic to the best of their ability.  We will then move on to the final two Vajra topics, "Qualities and Activities."  Shedra classes will be ongoing weekly.  Rinpoche strongly encourages all Mipham Shedra members who intend to delve deeper into  Buddhist Philosophy to attend these classes.  For students who have received vows from Rinpoche, these classes are part of your vow commitment.  Class recordings will be available if Tuesday nights have a scheduling conflict for you.  Even if you have not attended previous classes you are warmly welcome to begin.  These are not "drop in" classes, rather they are a progressive means to advance your understanding in a way that positively benefits your practice.  Class format includes two hours of teaching with question and answer time, followed by  20-30 minutes of advanced meditation.  It is strongly recommended that you participate in one of the weekly zoom "discussion groups" which are made up of six fellow class members.  Rinpoche joins in at the end of these groups to answer questions, and provide clarification.
