Chandrakirti (circa seventh century) was an Indian scholar of the Madhyamaka or Middle Way school. He is the author of Entering the Middle Way, a treatise that explains the ten stages (Skt. bhumis) of a noble bodhisattva and the level of a fully awakened buddha, with particular focus on explaining the view of emptiness (Skt. shunyata) according to Nagarjuna’s tradition and refuting other philosophical views.

Book study, reflection, and meditation program

Seven Points of Mind Training


begins on Sunday, April 28,
and will continue on most Sundays until June

7:30 PM Central Time (Minnesota)
8:30 PM Eastern / 6:30 PM Mountain / 5:30 PM Pacific

This is a Zoom-only program. Email to register. The Zoom link and relevant texts will be provided electronically to registered participants.

Join us for this weekly community book program on Sunday evenings, starting April 28.  We will read, contemplate, and meditate on the Seven Points of Mind Training, a treasured instruction brought to Tibet by Atisha and written down by Geshe Chekawa.

Dharma teachings are traditionally studied and contemplated over and over again for direct experience to arise in one’s mind.  Thus, the main focus of the book program is to read and understand the text.  There will be time for discussion, questions, and meditation as well.

This program is offered at no cost although donations are welcome to support the Dharma center and its Dharma activities.

Monthly topic:

Cultivating Faith

with Khenpo Thupten Gongphel
(Zoom and in person)

Monday, April 29
7 PM Central Time (Minnesota)
8 PM Eastern / 6 PM Mountain / 5 PM Pacific

In this class based on Ornament to Beautify the Three Appearances (also called the Triple Vision), we will explore the subject of faith in Buddhism, the different types of faith, and how faith based on genuine understanding and confidence keeps us grounded and undeterred as Dharma practitioners.  All are welcome.
