THE SECOND SETTING IN MOTION OF THE WHEEL OF DHARMA: THE ABSENCE OF CHARACTERISTICS
To guide his disciples towards liberation and enlightenment, the Buddha gave a wide range of teachings tailored to their individual needs and abilities. These teachings were then grouped into three classes of teachings called the three settings in motion of the wheel of Dharma, each setting in motion revealing another essential dimension of the path. In seminars during three years from 2022 to 2024, each of these teaching classes is addressed in turn.
In this second part, the specific subject of the second setting in motion of the wheel of Dharma is the profound wisdom of emptiness. This was expounded at length in the Sutras of the Perfection of Wisdom and later commented upon by many great masters, including Ārya Nāgārjuna and the teachers of the Madhyamaka school.
In this seminar we will explore the notion of reality as it is taught in the sutras of the perfection of wisdom. Our study of the “Heart Sutra” will be based on a commentary by the great Sakya master, Rongteun Sheja Kunrig, and accompanied by an introduction to the Middle Way school (Madhyamaka).
