About our Wednesday Evening Philosophy classes
Geshe Namdak’s Wednesday evening philosophy classes continue in 2023. Between May and November, we’ll take a deep-dive into new texts and new aspects of the Buddhist view of reality.

About this series
Liberation from suffering samsara and achieving enlightenment depend on the realisation of emptiness. To generate a clear understanding of emptiness, we need to depend on the works of the Indian masters and their philosophy. This course will explain the different views of emptiness in the schools of Buddhist Philosophy and will mainly focus on the Chittamātra and Mādhyamaka schools in the context of the eight uncommon points of the Prāsaṅgika School. At the conclusion of this course Geshe Namdak will summarize these important points of emptiness with An Experiential Song on the View, Recognising My Mother by Changkya Rolpai Dorje.

About the Teacher
Our courses and classes on Buddhist philosophy and practice rely on a skilled teacher to bring them to life. We’re extremely fortunate to have a supremely qualified Resident Teacher to do just that. After completing his university studies in Hydrology, Geshe Namdak worked as an environmental researcher in the Netherlands. He began studying Buddhism at Maitreya Institute and was eventually ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama before completing the 20-year Geshe degree at Sera Jey monastic university in India, as well as the traditional one-year Vajrayana study program at Gyume Tantric College. Few people can combine this extensive Buddhist education with a rigorous scientific training. The result is Geshe Namdak’s unique teaching style, which is at once incisive, clear, warm and humorous.
