Second Turning of the Wheel: The Bodhisattva Path

This course examines the philosophical view, meditation practice, and compassionate action of the bodhisattva path, as expressed in the Mahayana texts. Prajnaparamita and the Vimalakirti Sutras provide the ground from which the bodhisattva path is explored in Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara. Finally, the ultimate view of emptiness is explored in the work of Nagarjuna's Root Verses of the Middle Way and its commentaries. Prerequisite: REL611.
