Re: Abhidharmakosa study group?

There are some other texts earlier than the Kosa, on which it was actually modeled, such as the Amrta-rasa, etc. They are smaller, more concise, to the point, less technical arguments. Ven Prof Dhammajoti has translated one of them, Abhidharma-avatara. http://www.hku.hk/buddhism/Publication_new.htm...

Re: Six Perfections question

Are the six perfections something that you should try to be engaged in at all times? You can engage only after you have learned how to. Only if you have taken the vows then you have to learn how to engage in and you have to practice them otherwise it is a transgression. If you have not taken the vo...

Re: need centers in my area

No. But on the FPMT website you can study many things on-line. We always record our meetings at Tse Chen Ling and put them on the site. Lama Yeshe founded FPMT with encouragement from His Holiness the Dalai Lama after his passing Lama Zopa has continued with this. I know what you mean about Charlot...

Right now I am driving 5 hours round trip to go to the center in Raleigh,NC. And they have started an additional study gr...
