Course Description

Geshe Phuntsok Gyeltsen, gives commentary on the dharma topic, The Presentation of Awareness and Knowledge or rather teachings on the Mind.  Although there is no actual text available in English, we recommend purchasing the late Lati Rinpoche’s book, Mind in Tibetan Buddhism, which is based on these teachings and also provides commentary on the subject.

For those who would like to purchase the book, you can visit Shambhala Publications.

As described in Mind in Tibetan Buddhism, "Buddhist practitioners in the great Tibetan monasteries of Lhasa, seeking to purify their minds and develop the correct understanding necessary for final enlightenment, began their formal inquiry into mind and consciousness by studying “The Presentation of Awareness and Knowledge”. This important text identifies the different types of minds and consciousnesses, their divisions and definitions. It presents the vocabulary connected with the mind and is a means of training the student in the process of reasoning - an endeavor integrally linked with all steps of the Gelugpa geshe training."

As a wonderful reminder:  All teachings are provided for free of charge.  Monetary offerings (donations) are still much appreciated.
