Debate Club 2020
Debate Practice Club
Wednesdays, March 4-April 29, 7:00-8:30pm
In Vajra Spot, Nalanda West Free; Donations Welcome
Beginning in the foundational curriculum of Nitartha Institute, students are able to train in the art of formal debate. A practice that is still used in monastery today, debate sharpens the clarity of the mind and refines our understanding of Buddhist concepts. In an effort to provide space for Nitartha students to develop these skills, we will offer a debate club for regular instruction and practice. The students will train in the English form, learn strategy, and develop their understanding of the concepts taught in Mind and Its World and Clear Thinking. We will begin with a review of the material taught in Clear Thinking, and then set off into the world of Beginning Debate.
Text Requirements: Collected Topics & Lorig text from Nitartha Institute
Must be committed to attending practice sessions & working with a partner outside of practice sessions.
