Teachings on A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life

With Geshe Tenzin Chophel Rinpoche

November 5 Sunday 4:30 - 6:30 PM

November 19 Sunday 4:30 - 6:30 PM

In the whole of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, there is no single treatise more deeply revered or widely practiced than A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Composed in the eighth century by the Indian Bodhisattva Santideva, it became an instant classic in the curricula of the Buddhist monastic universities of India, and its renown has grown ever since. Santideva presents methods to harmonize one's life with the Bodhisattva ideal and inspires one to cultivate the perfections of the Bodhisattva: generosity, ethics, patience, zeal, meditative concentration and wisdom.

Lhabab Duchen celebrates when Lord Buddha actually descended from the God Realm of Thirty-Three after teaching his mother and the gods living there Dharma for several months. Karmic results of actions on this day are multiplied 100 million times.

Join us in celebrating Lhabab Duchen with a Vajrasattva one day retreat. Vajrasattva’s purification practice is a powerful way to release mistakes of the past and step forward into the future with a good motivation and clear mind.
