Lamrim Chenmo – Insight
Sunday 18 February @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
This term we begin the sixth perfection, the Perfection of Wisdom. Why is this the most important of the Six Perfections? Because all of us share the wish to be happy and to overcome duḥkha. We recognise how the situation in saṃsāra is utterly unsatisfactory, but ceasing samsara entails eradicating its causes, and these are rooted in the ignorance grasping persons and phenomena as inherently existent.
By meditating over time with the wisdom directly perceiving emptiness, the levels of afflictions and their seeds can be gradually cleansed from one’s mindstream. Continued meditation gradually removes the cognitive obscurations—the latencies of ignorance and the factor of the appearance of inherent existence—from the mind. When this wisdom is complemented by faith, collection of merit, and bodhicitta, full awakening is on the horizon!
This is in-depth study group meets fortnightly, and is suitable for established students and the committed beginner. Please feel free to try out a class to see if the material and presentation suits you. Each class will have readings from the root texts, and an opportunity for questions and discussion in real time (either live or type into the chat).
“All afflictions are overcome– Aryadeva
through overcoming ignorance.
When dependent arising is seen,
ignorance does not arise.
It is the only doorway to peace;
it destroys wrong views;
it captures the attention of all buddhas—
this is called selflessness.”
