"The senses are like the six village thieves. They dwell in one village together but they don't perceive one another. The eye-sense runs after forms, the ear-sense runs after the consideration of sounds, the nose-sense takes up various smells, the tongue-sense runs after tastes continually, the body-sense runs after sensations of touch and the mind-sense runs after consideration of things. These are the six senses, which severally approach their own object."

-Chapter # 5 "Emptiness" from the "Golden Light Sutra

Title: Discovering the Function of Mind and Transforming it into Wisdom CLASS

SUNDAY, SEPT. 26th @ 4pm

in San Jose

2109 O'Toole Ave., Suite N, San Jose, CA, 95131

(cross street Paragon Dr., in Redwood Business Plaza)

In this class we will investigate and discuss how the eye, ear, noise, tongue, body, and mind conscious perceive sensations and create concepts/ imprints that are stored in our mind, and how and why these experiences become the ignorance in our mind and how they function in creating other delusions such as greed and hatred.

We will also uncover the antidote to our ignorance, by discovering what is the correct wisdom view, and will discuss how integrated the view of emptiness into our daily life.

We will be learning from the precious teachings of our Lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche, 68th Lineage Holder of Sacred Lineage of Chinese Vajrayana Buddhism. His insight, compassion, humility, and heart-touching humor really make the teachings come alive in your heart and mean something to you. It is really an honor and incredibly precious opportunity to be able to listen to his teachings and receive blessings.
