Meditation on Emptiness Course – The Middle Way

Please join us for the January Meditation on Emptiness course with Jim Scott.

Meditation on Emptiness is a gradual path of study, contemplation on meditation on the Buddha’s teaching leading to the experience of the nature of reality, which in Mahayana Buddhism is called emptiness (Sanskrit: sunyata). It was taught extensively in the West by the Karma Kagyu master Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche. 

The subject of the January course will be the third stage of Meditation on Emptiness – the view and practice of the Svātantrika-Madhyamaka school of Buddhism. These are the teachings on emptiness transmitted by the Buddha and later systematised by the Indian scholar Nagarjuna. At this level the meditator learns how to gain insight into emptiness through logical reasoning followed up with meditation.

The course will be taught by Jim Scott – a disciple of Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche since Rinpoche first started teaching in the West in 1977 and a translator of canonical works of Buddhism known for his arrangements of the songs of the Tibetan yogi Milarepa. 

The course runs from 26 to 28 January 2024. For people who haven’t practised emptiness meditation before, we have prepared an introductory meeting on 25 January. All classes will take place in Warsaw, Poland. You can also join the course online using the Zoom application. The sessions will be held in English with translation into Polish. If necessary, we will try to organise translation into other languages.
