New Series: Learning to Trust ... Your Potential, the Path, and the Spiritual Guide

This class is offered in person only

Some people might be surprised to know that faith is an important component of the Buddhist spiritual path. They might think that spiritual progress depends on step-by-step building upon our experience in meditation, so why would we need faith? However, we will only venture out on the spiritual path if we trust it. And we will trust it if we trusts the map (ie. the teachings) and the person guiding us along that map (the Spiritual Guide).

These days, where everything in our society feels unreliable if not downright false and misleading, one needs to develop such trust and faith carefully.

In this series, we will explore together the final meditation of the fifteen meditations that make up our Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, the meditation on improving our reliance on the Spiritual Guide. Within Buddhist meditation, faith is not an irrational leap, but rather something that we develop gradually fully in dependence upon both reasoning and doubt. It is a mind of trust that arises in dependence our own thorough investigation of the validity of Buddha’s teachings through analysis and exploring their efficacy in meditation. In other words, our experience of the teachings will enable us to more fully trust the teachings. This in turn will lead us to take them more deeply to heart.

June 16: Faith, Blessings and the Benefits of Relying Upon a Spiritual Guide
June 23: Real Faith Needs Both Reason and Doubt
June 30: The Actual Meditation on Training in Trust
July 7: The Kindness of the Spiritual Guide
July 14: Faith and Wisdom in Daily Life
