Buddhist Philosophy; Tenets: Madhyamika School Ven. Geshe Ngawang Dakpa
Tenets. Based on the idea that the Buddha taught different things to different people in line with their capacities, Tibetan scholars systematized the numerous trends in Indian Buddhist thought and taught the four schools of Tenets (Drubtha) as a means to approach the most profound philosophical teachings via more accessible levels. The text that is the basis for study of this subject gives a brief overview of the assertions on minds, objects, selflessness and the nature of attainment within each of the schools, culminating in the tenets of the most highly esteemed school, the Madhyamikas.
The lectures are given in Tibetan and translated into English. Please note that the translations have not been checked.
