"This analytical meditation course is a systematic training in the meditation of special insight in the tradition of Mahāyāna Buddhism. The students learn the skills to gain certainty in the view of emptiness through the practice of the Four Mahāyāna Yogas, cultivating inferential wisdom and bringing it to personal experience."
Faculty/Instructor(s): Jirka Hladiš
"This intermediate debate course is a continuation in training in formally debating the tenets of the Sautrāntika philosophical tradition. Debate topics in this class center around the proof of subtle impermanence —the reason of non-dependency that proves that entities do not rely on another cause for their momentary cessation other than their own dependently arisen appearance. This semester, students will focus on refutations of a truly existent personal self."
