Madhyamaka Through Metaphor: Wisdom and Ignorance
We welcome Geshe Dadul Namgyal‘s return for this fascinating course. Drawing metaphors from the classical Budddhist texts, he uses contemporary visual images to help us navigate the philosophical tenet system. His goal—well achieved—is to convey the journey, intricacies, and experiences of cultivating the profound Middle Way view.
Geshela’s teaching style in lively and interactive and his English is superb. Intellectually challenging, this course will help us develop a deeper understanding of dependent arising and emptiness.

He holds a Geshe Lharampa degree (doctorate) in Buddhism and Philosophy from the Drepung Monastic University and a Master’s degree in English Literature from Panjab University in India. Geshe-la is an author, professor, translator, and has served as auxiliary interpreter for His Holiness and Dalai Lama.
