The Intermediate Series January 31 - May 23, 2015 4th Saturdays, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Taught by Geshe Ngawang Phende Recommended for all who have completed the Foundation Series course at Drepung Loseling blank Continuing from where the Foundation Series left off, the Intermediate Series surveys the most essential teachings and meditations of Mahayana (Greater Vehicle) Buddhism, which is founded on the generation of universal compassion that takes responsibility for all sentient beings. Each retreat in the series provides training in the theory and practice of an essential Mahayana meditation. The series leads progressively on to the final retreat of the series on Vajrasattva, an intermediate-level tantric meditation for purification and inner transformation, and serves as a general prerequisite for more advanced retreats. Daily Schedule 1st Session: 10 am - Noon Lunch: Noon - 2 pm 2nd Session: 2 - 4 pm When taken after having completed the Foundation Series, the Intermediate Series is designed to provide a solid basis for the practice of Mahayana Buddhist meditation, which in turn forms the precondition for tantric practice.
