All of us tend to think of Nirvana as something very mysterious and very much beyond the ability of normal people like us to reach. The ancient books of Tibet though provide a clear and practical guide that each of us can use to reach this state of great peace and happiness.
In this course, which is a continuation of last years “Introduction to Nirvana,” we’ll be focusing on ancient methods of reaching nirvana here, in this life, in the modern world. Things we can do with a family, with a job.
The key that makes this possible is found in an ancient tradition called The Perfection of Wisdom. The most famous version is called the Eight Thousand Verses, over 2,000 years old. This is a long story of the search for nirvana by everyday people like Sada Prarudita, a “normal guy” who heard a voice that taught him how to reach his Nirvana, here in this life. And we will too!
