Lineage and Devotion: Understanding the Teacher-Student Relationship 

 

When : January 12 - February 9, 2004 (Mondays), 7:00 - 9:00 pm

Taught by: Elaine Yuen and Barry Buchy

The Buddhist tradition has always considered the lineage of wisdom and realization as passed down through living teachers. This course, for those with some experience in meditation, will explore how teachers play a central role in transmitting the paths of study and practice to their students. Aspects of the student-teacher relationship will be considered through various perspectives: trust in the teacher and teachings, faith in the wisdom that resides within oneself, and the resulting devotion that understands the entire phenomenal world as teacher. We will also introduce central lineage figures within the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, and explore how their life and teachings serve as up-to-date examples for us as practitioners.
