Buddhism is not a religion in the usual sense of the word. It is a method of investigation that allows you to work skillfully with the positive potentials and negative energies of your own mind. The teachings of the Hinayana represent the most fundamental instructions of the Buddha, which are central to everything that follows. Hinayana studies, therefore, are basic to any training in Buddhism.

In the Nalandabodhi Path of Study, Hinayana studies introduce you to Buddhism as a science of mind, or method of investigation. Your study of the Hinayana continues for one year, divided into two courses: The first course covers the ground or view of Hinayana, and the second covers the Hinayana path and its results.

The Hinayana View (HIN 201)
This course introduces you to the Hinayana as the indispensable foundation of the three-yana system of Buddhist study (Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana). Then you will learn the main elements of the Hinayana view, through a detailed examination of the building blocks of the Buddhist science of mind.

The Hinayana Path and Fruition (HIN 202)
The second course, Hinayana Path and Fruition, shows you how the view is applied through the practices of the Hinayana path, where you will explore techniques of mindfulness, concentration, and insight.

The Hinayana courses also present the core principles of Buddhist ethics and society, and the relationship of the Hinayana to the other teachings of Buddhism you encounter in the 300 and 400 levels of the Nalandabodhi Path of Study.

Please contact Robert Prichard (rob@surfreality.com) or Priscilla Shulman (awakemoon@gmail.com) with any questions.  Materials for the course can be purchased here.
