Buddhist Studies and Meditation
Buddhist studies and meditation includes all the various doctrines and methods that are taught so that individuals can understand their own real condition and, according to their capacity, attain freedom. These derive from texts found in the great Buddhist canonical collections of Tibet belonging to all traditions.
Courses in this field will begin with the study of various teachings which do not require any form of transmission. More advanced courses will include studies and practices which are related to the Dzogchen transmission of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu or another qualified master. The requirements are a willingness to receive transmission and to keep the Samaya (commitment) that transmission entails. Students will of course have ample opportunity to discuss this further as they study.
