The first section of this course will study writings that exhort us to take up the Buddhist path. The second part will turn to meditation theory. The third section will consider how study of the modes of being encouraged in path writings can shed light on the relationship between meditation practice and breakthrough. The course readings, all in English translation, will be chapters from Visuddhimagga, Abhidharmakosa, Abhisamayalamkara, and Indo-Tibetan path literature.
