(2 credits)  The heart of Buddhist practice is meditation on emptiness, a rigorous contemplative approach towards gaining deep insight into the nature of reality with the goal of attaining liberation for the benefit of oneself and others. In this class, we will explore some of the traditional approaches to meditation on emptiness from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, both in terms of the instructions on the practices in some classic texts and by some realized authors (including Shantideva, Tsongkhapa, and the Buddha himself), and in terms of becoming familiar with the meditations themselves.
