(2 credits) This course will present an overview of some of the most important rituals, ethics, services, and ceremonies that form the core of Buddhist practice in the Tibetan tradition, and shape everyday life of practitioners. We will begin with an overview of the ethical guidelines for practitioners, including precepts of practice, their purpose, meaning, and how to maintain them. The course will continue with an introduction to and, where relevant, instruction in, rituals, services, and ceremonies performed by the clergy and by practitioners themselves in the course of everyday life. Finally, the course will touch on some of the more esoteric rituals and ceremonies of the tradition, such as divination, offering practices, and so forth, and their significance in the tradition and in the lives of practitioners and Buddhist communities.
