This is an introductory course to the Three Vows (or Three Codes) written by Sakya Pandita. It discusses the Hinayana, Mayahana, and Tantric vows of Buddhist conduct, which often diverge and contradict each other — an essential study for Buddhist practitioners who wish to deepen their understanding and practice. It is one of the must read that the late Khenchen Appey Rinpoche advised some of his lay students to study. The English translation A Clear Differentiation of the Three Codes, translated by Jared Rhoton, is published by State University of New York Press.
STTL is fortunate that Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe has accepted our society’s invitation to give an introductory course on this teaching, taught in English for the first time.
Khenpola is an excellent Buddhist teacher and scholar who has been teaching the Dharma for more than 20 years to western students. He is highly regarded for his profound understanding of the Buddha Dharma as well as his language ability. Khenpola has also been invited many times by Jetsun Kushok to accompany her on her teaching trips to act as her translator.
