Nitartha Presents: BUD 610 Madhyamaka Philosophical Tradition: Not Even a Middle

Dec 06, 2017, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This course is an overview of the final view of the Buddhist philosophy—the Madhyamaka, or the Middle Way tradition of Mahāyāna, which propounds the view of shūnyatā, the emptiness of all phenomena, the transcendence of all views, freedom from elaborations. We will study the presentation of the two truths, their union, and the five great madhyamaka visasonings.
