The Middle Way(中道)
by Ven. Guo Goang
佛教的「中道」是佛法的義理與實修的核心,亦是佛法與非佛法的判準。「中道」包含中道正見與中道生活:中道生活以中道正見為首導;中道正見體现於空、有不相離。在這次講題中,我們一起來認識「中道」與「空、有」的面面觀,並從中道正見了解世間的空與有,而更坚定修學佛法的信心。

主題:
10/3 -- 從世間的起源說
10/10 -- 從世間有說
10/17 -- 從世間空說
10/24 -- 從空世間及空不空世間説
10/31 -- 從涅槃説

Lotus Sutra
by Harry Miller
The Lotus Sutra is called the "King of the Sutras" because of its great depth and inclusivity. In proclaiming its truth, the Sutra leads us to question what we are holding on to, and it reveals a path of deepest wisdom for all beings.

    Being, Knowing, and Doing – From studying the self to forgetting the self. (Lectures series 3)
    by Dr. Peter Lin
    As Master Dogen said, “To Study the way, is to study the self, to study the self is to forget the self.” You have to be somebody before you can be nobody. This lecture series will be a survey of the major theories of personality and the important applications associated with each theoretical approach. Specifically, it will address (from a psychological perspective) the question, “who am I?”
