Essence of Buddhism Study Group (Zoom only)
August 24, 2023, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A link to ZOOM will appear on this page 15-minutes prior to the start time.
Beginning August 10, Lama Eric Triebelhorn will lead a study group on The Essence of Buddhism by Traleg Kyabgon. This book discusses many of the foundational aspects of Buddhism, written by a deeply trained Tibetan teacher who spent many years teaching in the West. The study group will include brief presentations of the material, small group conversations, and sharing in the larger group.
This study group temporarily takes the place of the long running Mind Training Study Group that Tim Campbell has facilitated for the past 10 years. While Tim is taking a short break, Lama Eric will be facilitating this Essence of Buddhism Study Group. Tim will resume facilitating the Mind Training Study Group later in 2024, once we have concluded with the Essence of Buddhism text.
Copies of the book are available for purchase in the KCC bookstore. You can read the first chapter here.
Recordings of each session are available under the Recent Practices & Video Archives page. Scroll down to the third line to find the Essence of Buddhism Study Group. Additional resources and readings for the next session on 8/24 are posted below. Please also read Chapter 1 of the text.
To facilitate the sharing of resources for this study group, we have created a Google email group, similar to our Community email group. If you are participating in this Essence of Buddhism study group, please enter your email in this spreadsheet to be added to this email group and receive regular correspondence from Lama Eric with resources and contemplations.
