A series of 6, 2-hour online meetings every two weeks from 5-7pm (Italian time) in which we will focus on on excerpts from the ཐར་པའི་ཐེམ་སྐས་ (thar pa’i them skas) by Jigme Lingpa.  In this course students will study the text in advance, according to the time they can dedicate, and read a passage each, define the grammar and propose a translation which will then be open for discussion.  This text presents the Seven Mind Trainings (here: sems sbyong) with a vivid and highly imaginative language, with surprising metaphors and analogies. An ideal gym for training grammar and dictionary skills.

You can ask to participate in the first lesson as a trial class.
