Dharma Lectures
Hosted by Steve Phuntsok Dorje
Offered Free of Charge

The Middle Way – Online Study Sessions Sessions are held roughly every two months. 
Please contact lebo.steve@gmail.com to join the list.

The middle way or madhyamaka are a set of Buddhist teachings that join two of the fundamental
principles of the bodhisattva path: wisdom and compassion. While the middle way is a philosophy, it
applies very directly to our everyday life and experience. Everyday life, in fact, is inextricably bound
to the practice of these teachings. In our study sessions, we rely on the words of great masters like
Karma Thinley Rinpoche, the Karmapas, Dalai Lama, Situ and Shamar Rinpoche to help us uncover the
meaning of the root texts we use in our discussions: Nagarjuna’s Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle
Way, Chandrakirti’s Entrance to the Middle Way, and Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of
Life. Our meetings are informal and free and held every two months. Please join us as we explore
Lord Buddha’s profound teachings on the middle way. All are welcome!
