    The Course in Buddhist Reasoning and Debate

    An Asian Approach to Analytical Thinking Drawn from Indian and Tibetan Sources

    • by
    • Daniel E. Perdue
    Buddhism is a wisdom tradition. It asserts that we are liberated by the power of our own understanding. The three purposes of Buddhist debate are to defeat your own and others’ misconceptions, to establish your own correct view, and to clear away objections to your view. It is like the approach of a physician—to remove what does not belong and to strengthen what does. Thus, for Buddhists, reasoning and… Read More

    Personality Type

    An Owner's Manual

    • by
    • Lenore Thomson
    The type test inside will tell you about the choices you've made and the direction you're taking—according to C. G. Jung's theory of psychological types.

  7. Great Perfection

    Great Perfection

    Outer and Inner Preliminaries

    • by
    • Third Dzogchen Rinpoche
    In the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism, the Great Perfection is considered the most profound and direct path to enlightenment. The instructions of this tradition present a spiritual shortcut—a radically direct approach that cuts through confusion and lays bare the mind's true nature of luminous purity. For centuries, these teachings have been taught and practiced in secret by some of the greatest adepts of the Buddhist tradition. Great Perfection:… Read More
