Tibetan Buddhism affirms that without a good intellectual and conceptual understanding of Buddhist philosophy, what we call “the view,” we default to ego’s opinions and to spiritual materialism. Moreover, the understanding of the Hinayana philosophical ground and the extensive teachings of Mahayana, especially on emptiness, are an absolutely necessary foundation for meditation practice and especially the Vajrayana.  This upcoming Sutrayana course is an opportunity to address gaps in our conceptual understanding, which will then benefit our ongoing practice and our confidence in fully living the journey.  In teaching this course, Reggie will be approaching the material from a more classical and intellectual standpoint than in the past.
