Robina Courtin: Presenting the Path (Discovering Buddhism)

Renowned senior FPMT Australian nun Venerable Robina Courtin will introduce the third module of the Discovering Buddhism study program, Presenting the path (intro to the module on Youtube). Discovering Buddhism is a 14 module study program that is part of the core curriculum of FPMT that we offer at the centre. Venerable Robina’s teachings were recorded for the online version of the DB module 3, so having this introduction from her is a wonderful opportunity.

Discovering Buddhism
Awakening all limitless potential of your mind, achieving all peace and happiness

2600 years ago, the historical Buddha, Buddha Shakyamuni gained direct insight into the nature of reality, perfected the qualities of wisdom and compassion, and revealed the path to his disciples. He became ”The one who is Awaken”, which is the literal meaning of ”Buddha”.
In the 11th Century, Atisha brought these teachings to Tibet in the form of the lam-rim – the gradual path to enlightenment. The lam-rim tradition found its pinnacle in the teachings of the great Tibetan saint Lama Tsongkhapa in the 14th Century, and these teachings continued to pass from teacher to student up to this present day.
When Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche transmitted these teachings to their disciples, they imparted a deeply experiential tradition of study and practice, leading thousands of seekers to discover the truth of what the Buddha taught. This tradition is the core of Discovering Buddhism.

 

Discovering Buddhism – All 14 Modules
(We might teach some of them in a different order)

 

Each module consists of teachings, meditations, readings, and a short retreat. As a student, you may do some or all of these components of each course, as you wish. Those who complete all the components receive a completion card for that course.
And when all fourteen modules have been completed, students receive a certificate of completion. This certificate awards the satisfaction of having completed a very comprehensive engagement with the studies, and is symbolic of your commitment to spiritual awakening, – and/or symbolic for your enthusiasm to deepen your knowledge and practice in Tibetan Mahayana Buddhism.
