A guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life

August 13 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.

Medicine Buddha Retreat

August 25, 26, 27

Due to the compassionate aspiration and the request from our center resident teacher Tenzin Choephel Rinpoche, Land of Compassion Buddha is hosting a three-day Medicine Buddha retreat from Aug. 25th to the 27th.

It is highly recommended for participants to engage in the complete length of the retreat in order to finish the recitations of Medicine Buddha’s long mantra. Yet, considering the different personal conditions of the students, Rinpoche also kindly allows part-time participation in this retreat.

Due to the great vows of Medicine Buddha, any living being who hears the name of Medicine Buddha never gets reborn in the lower realms. Besides its renowned benefit in healing physically, mentally, and spiritually, the practice of Medicine Buddha is also powerful for purification of broken vows and precepts, as well as the attainment of success.
