Course Description

The Essential Dhammapada (EDp) course was initially started for meditators who need to support their practice with the direct teachings of the Buddha. This course is structured to include the basics of the Dhammapada along with techniques of how to study, interpret and apply the teachings to the practice.   The course focuses on selected stanzas that are relevant for foundational study and application. Each class consists of reading and reciting of stanzas followed by translation from Pali and understanding the relevant background story.  


(Prerequisite: Essential Dhammapada EDp)

The Mastering the Dhammapada (MDp) course is an intense course focused on studying, memorizing, translating and applying the teachings from the Dhammapada.  The course is structured to build on techniques and learning from EDp alongside further direction provided for self-study and home work assignments.  Each yogi will have to assess selected stanzas and demonstrate appropriate application of the teachings.  Assignments will need to be completed as scheduled for review by the teacher.  A certificate will be issued to yogis who successfully complete the course.
