Introduction to the Four Tenet Schools in Buddhism
April 14, 10:00 am
The study of the four philosophical schools is usually referred to as the study of tenets, or tenet systems. The Tibetan word for tenet is, drubta, drub meaning "established" and "ta" meaning "conclusion". Tenet is a philosophical conclusion that is reached through analysis and examination and has become incontrovertible in our minds.
This special "five" part class will delve into the philosophies and practices of the Four Tenet Schools and how this knowledge will help further our Buddhist practice. The four schools are Vaibhasika (Great Exposition), Sautrantika (Sutra), Cittamatra (Mind Only) and Madhyamaka (Middle Way).
This class will run in 5 parts (you will need to register for each class you are attending):
