We may think of cosmology as something distant from our daily lives and experiences. However, the Buddhist view is that the cosmology of the external universe is intimately interconnected with our own minds.. Understanding the nature of the universe around us and of our own minds go hand in hand. In recent decades, there have been numerous, fruitful dialogues between Buddhist masters (including H.H. the Dalai Lama) and Western physicists on the nature of physical phenomena and on the interdependent connections between mind and matter.

In this series of classes, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Losang Jampa will present some detailed descriptions of the Buddhist view of the universe. His presentation will include descriptions of realms of exerience beyond the direct experience of normal, human consciousness. The essence of Buddhist practice is a path unifying compassion and wisdom. These teachings will expand our wisdom about the nature of ourselves and world around us, while also helping us to empathically imagine alternate ways of experiencing the world, allowing us to develop a broader, deeper sort of compassion that embraces beings in all possible realms of experience. They will also include interesting points about realms of experience accessed solely via meditation.
