Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi | “Models of the Path to Liberation in Early Buddhism” – Series of Talks for Russian speakers on Saturdays (9:30 am; ET, US)
This year Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi will resume his monthly Dhamma talks for speakers of Russian with a new series on the theme “Models of the Path to Liberation in Early Buddhism.” In the suttas we see that the Buddha presented his teachings on the path in a variety of ways designed to meet the needs of his audience. Some models are more comprehensive and general; others are narrower, intended for particular individuals. In this series, Ven. Bodhi will explore four comprehensive models of the path: the noble eightfold path, the sequential training of the monk, the seven factors of enlightenment, and the seven stages of purification.
The talks will be based on the discourses of the Buddha.
A file with the text material can be found here.
Bhante will present the talks in English, with alternating translation into Russian. Those who don’t know Russian are welcome to join.
The talks will be given online at 9:30 am ET = 3:30 pm Moscow time. Those in other time zones who want to join should check for the corresponding time in their own zone at this site.
