Book Study Group
GROUP DESCRIPTION The Book Study Group is a gathering of individuals who read, study, and discuss various dharma books together. Anyone can benefit at any point in a book by attending, so don’t hesitate to drop in—whether you have read the current chapter or not! BOOK Approaching the Buddhist Path by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Thubten Chodron BOOK DESCRIPTION The Buddha wanted his students to investigate, to see for themselves whether what he said were true. As a student of the Buddha, the Dalai Lama promotes the same spirit of investigation, and as the rich tradition of the Buddha makes its way into new lands and cultures, His Holiness has recognized that new approaches are needed to allow seekers in the West to experience the relevance of the liberating message in their own lives. Such an approach cannot assume listeners are free from doubt and already have faith in Buddhism’s basic tenets.The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series, therefore, starts from the universal human wish for happiness and presents the dynamic nature of the mind. This first volume also provides a wealth of reflections on Buddhist history and fundamentals, contemporary issues, and the Dalai Lama’s own personal experiences. It stands alone as an introduction to Buddhism, but it also provides a foundation for the systematic illumination of the path in the volumes to come. BOOK AVAILABILITY The Dharmakaya Center offers hardcover copies of the book for sale for 30 $. Outside of the Center, the book can be purchased from The Foundation Store (https://shop.fpmt.org/Approaching-the-Buddhist-Path_p_2949.html) or other major retailers and is also available in Kindle format. TARGET CHAPTER Chapter 3 ​ SUGGESTED DONATION 5 $ (No one turned away for lack of funds!)

The Center is based on the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, the spiritual tradition of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is part of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) (http://fpmt.org/), an international family of city and retreat centers, monasteries, publishing houses, hospices, and healing centers that share that purpose.

This organization is run by individuals dedicated to providing an integral educational experience through which minds and hearts can be transformed into their highest potential for the benefit of all sentient beings. By following an attitude of universal responsibility, we seek to create harmonious environments everywhere and offer these teachings. The spiritual director for the Center is Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

The Center hosts weekly Buddhist teachings, guided meditations, and other related events. It is located at 6165 Ridgeview Court, Suite G in Reno, Nevada.
