Class Summary:
The Wheel of Life was a diagram commissioned by Buddha that teaches the complete path to enlightenment. Included within it are Buddha’s teachings on The Four Noble Truths, telling us what we should know, abandon, practice and attain; it also illustrates the Twelve-Dependent Related Links, a chain-like series of cause and effect that reveals the way in which we are bound to samsaric rebirth.
This course will give a practical and contemplative tour of the Wheel of Life and show how we can use this diagram to inspire our meditations and guide us along the spiritual path.

“Even if we contemplate deeply the most sublime paintings and works of art we cannot gain benefits that compare with the benefits of contemplating and meditating on the diagram of the Wheel of Life because this diagram reveals the complete path to liberation and full enlightenment. Other works of art may hold our attention for some time, and they may make the artist famous and the art dealers rich, but they cannot communicate so vast and profound a meaning to those who behold and meditate upon them.”  Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. “Joyful Path of Good Fortune.
