Understanding Ignorance

According to Buddhist philosophical traditions, wisdom, understanding, and insight are central to awakening and gaining freedom from suffering; ignorance, delusion, and misunderstanding are the main obstacles to awakening and serve to keep us mired in suffering. But what is ignorance? What causes ignorance? How is ignorance maintained and cemented in our thinking, feeling, acting? What kind of ignorance is an obstacle to awakening (or is any ignorance at all an obstacle)? How does one recognize and address one’s own ignorance? What are the personal, ethical, and social implications of ignorance? This seminar will focus on these questions – and others – from Pāli, Chinese, and Tibetan Buddhist philosophical traditions.
