  Cognition & Awareness (Lorig):
A Course in Buddhist Science
of Mind
  Taught by Geshe Lhabu Dhondup
  Thursdays, February 16 - April 20,
7:00-8:30 pm


This ten-week course will give a comprehensive presentation of the Buddhist science of mind, guiding students through the inner landscape of the mind and its functions, based on the standard text used in the Tibetan monastic curriculum. An intimate understanding of the basic cognitive and contemplative models of Buddhist psychology presented in this course will provide a rich and broad framework to understand and implem ent a systematic course of meditations for enhancing positive mental states and transform destructive ones, leading to genuine inner peace and happiness.

Geshe Lhabu Dhondup is a particularly skilled teacher, whose many years of teaching experience, coupled with his own contemplative practice, enable him to distill the most essential elements from the vast array of Buddhist teachings and present them in the most accessible and applicable way. Geshe Lhabu was born in the Tehor region of eastern Tibet in 1937. After receiving his novice ordination at a very young age, he pursued his initial training at the local monastery of Dhargye. At age 17 he entered the famed Drepung Loseling Monastery in Lhasa, and in 1959 he followed His Holiness the Dalai Lama into exile in India, where he continued his spiritual training and received his Geshe Lharam degree, the highest degree of learning in Tibetan Buddhism, from Drepung Loseling Monastery in 1989. He taught at the Central Institute of Buddhist Studies in Ladakh from 1981-2002, and has taught since then at Drepung Loseling Monastery. The Institute is honored to have Geshe-la as its senior resident teacher for 2006.
