IBA 2009 Programs 明年IBA的十天课程是宗萨钦哲仁波切来教授 :-)

Since IBA site is not always accessible for some unfortunate people, I copy some of the 2009 course info below. Please refer to IBA site for the most updated info.  
1. Annual Retreat (Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche) – June 2 – 11
Our annual ten-day retreat is a wonderful opportunity to delve more deeply into the Dharma and to reconnect with one’s stable center of practice. This year we are very fortunate to have Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche guiding the retreat. Rinpoche will teach upon the mind-training tradition of Parting from the 4 Attachments. Rinpoche will base his teaching on a commentary on these pith instructions by the great Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo.

2. Bodhicharyavatara (Bodhisattva’s way of life) – June 16 – July 12
Written by the Madhyamika poet and scholar Shantideva in the 7th century CE, the Bodhicharyavatara is one of the great masterpieces of Buddhist literature and the most read and practiced text in all Mahayana Traditions. This text has been quoted so often by the great Tibetan masters due to its clarity and direct presentation of the view and practice of the Bodhisattva path as encapsulated in the Six Perfections. Khenpo Jamyang Tenzin will present a detailed line by line explanation of the last 4 chapters directly in English, relying on Gyalsay Togme Sangpo’s commentary.

3. General Meaning of the Middle Way (Gorampa) – July 16 – Sept. 13
The author proceeds to outline the general principles upon which the Middle Way is established as the essence of the Buddha’s teaching by developing the understanding of Madhyamika on the basis of ground, path and result. The ground teaching focuses mainly on the two truths, logical argument by syllogism, and the two types of selflessness. The path teaching discusses the mind of enlightenment, its causes and how they are produced, the accumulation of merit and wisdom and transcendent realisations. The result teaching describes the sublime qualities of the Buddha clearing away misconceptions regarding the nature and activity of a perfectly enlightened Buddha. Khenpo Dr. Ngawang Jorden will lecture directly in English based upon the Tibetan commentary.
