The development of the Buddhadharma as it is passed down to us through Buddhist lineages is said to parallel or be repeated by our own spiritual development as individuals on our own spiritual path.  Over the centuries, learned Tibetan masters examined the debates that have occurred in the long history of the lineages going back to the Buddha himself.  But instead of seeing the debates in terms of disputes, they asked the question, what can we learn from each other and how does this wisdom relate to our own path?  

This way of understanding the wisdom of the lineage is presented in the book Contemplating Reality by Andy Karr, which is based primarily on the classic text by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamptso, Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness.  Karr’s book makes the classic test more accessible and provides many helpful contemplation practices.  Using Karr’s approach, we will develop our understanding and experience the stages of egolessness, emptiness, and luminosity, as taught by historically evolving Buddhist schools.
