TSTD 202: Advanced Studies in Buddhist Philosophy and Hermeneutics II

This is a series of specialized courses in Buddhist philosophy and scriptural interpretation taught by Khenpos and Lopons and translated into English. The aim of this series is to deepen the knowledge of complex Buddhist philosophical topics and their relations to the broader field of Buddhist studies. Students are able to deepen the understanding developed in Buddhist Philosophy and Hermeneutics I & II and apply more nuanced analyses of the primary source texts studied. Course readings are primarily classical Indian treatises and their Indo-Tibetan commentaries in areas such as Abhidharma, Madhyamaka, and Yogācāra thought.
