Appearances are Mere Mind

Jirka Hladiš and Mark Seibold will teach the first course in the Nitartha Intermediate Curriculum: Chittamātra Philosophical Tradition: Appearances are Mere Mind (BUD 601).

Course Description: This course is a systematic presentation of Chittamātra, or Mind Only meditative view of Mahāyāna Buddhism. We will engage in the philosophical reformulation of experiences arising from meditation practice – declaring reasonings establishing objects as not separate from mind, as well as the three natures theory and the eight-fold collection of consciousness.
