Madhyamaka – Teachings and Conversations

To everyone who respects and acknowledges common sense, reason, and our common needs, I highly recommend participating in Dr. Thomas Doctor’s upcoming interactive course on the profound view of the Middle Way.

I have emphatically requested Dr. Thomas Doctor to teach on Madhyamaka. Please listen, and if you have any doubts, you can ask him and clarify your doubts. If you can, I suggest that you also participate in the optional exercises that the course will include. These teachings are very profound and ever helpful. Please listen well and study well. It will help you forever.
Love and blessings,

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
